Rafa, Through Thick And Thin!

Press Release

Rafa, Through Thick And Thin!

‘It would have been difficult to beat him even if I were at 100%. When a player does almost everything better than you, you can’t complain.’ That was Rafael Nadal’s reaction after Djokovic’s stunning victory against him at the Australian Open this Sunday. Sportsmanlike. Magnanimous.

The two players have been facing off since 2006. When you’re at the top of your game, you constantly walk a tightrope between victory and defeat. That’s is what world champions do, day in, day out. Nadal got to the final in Melbourne without losing a single set, despite a long lay-off due to an injury at the US Open. That takes guts. That’s exactly why Richard Mille approached his tennis hero in the first place in 2010. ‘Rafa and I have a life-long commitment. We are there come rain or shine. It’s about friendship. It is more than just watchmaking – it’s life!’
