Roland-Garros: Rafael Nadal is heating up, the final decision is coming!

Holder of a Master’s degree in sports journalism, I fell in love with tennis from childhood and I have always loved reading the beautiful stories of this sport. Today, I want to tell them, take full advantage of my passion and be as close as possible to the aces of the circuit.
