Nadal’s post-Wimby vacation twist: Sardinia

Many years, after Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal can be found sailing his boat, Beethoven, off the coast of Ibiza.

Sometimes women are allowed; most often it’s boys only.


But Nadal, a creature of habit, has put a twist on that this year.

He’s been spotted at Phi Beach on the island of Sardinia with his pals. It’s on the north shore, next to Corsica. But it’s not that far from home – only 350 miles, as the crow flies.

One reason may be that Beethoven is on the market, as Nadal plans to upgrade. He did sail after the French Open.
