Rafael Nadal as a freelancer

July 7, 2022

Few people realize that professional sports(wo)men are also independent professionals. As freelancers, we can learn a lot from them. One of the greatest sources of inspiration in sports is definitely Rafa Nadal, who is now competing for his third Grand Slam title of 2022 in Wimbledon. As CNN puts it in a recent article, Nadal is a world-class athlete who “talks like Aristotle and acts like Confucius.”

Note: Another tennis player who has been a huge role model is Andre Agassi. His autobiography Open even made it into our selection of the best books for freelancers.
