The former Indian cricketer and our favorite MS Dhoni is a Tennis follower. And he even has a favorite in Tennis. Wolrd No. 1 Rafael Nadal is whom the most successful Indian skipper admires.

Dhoni has always been a big fan of the 31-year-old Spaniard and has been following his game over many years. Dhoni feels that Nadal has the ability of never giving up and fighting till the end and this is what has impressed the Indian cricket legend.

He feels that giving up is the easy way out. If one fights and loses, he learns. If one gives up, he just loses.

Known as the “King of Clay”, Nadal has 16 Grand Slams singles in his name, has won a Gold medal in Olympics in 2008. World’s No.1 Tennis player, Nadal even held an all-time record of 30 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles.

Both Nadal and Dhoni are greatest players in their game, both have a strategic mind with the expertise to perform when they are on the field/court. Their attitude of not giving up and  ‘fight till the end’ is what the whole world admires.

“My goal is not to be better than anyone else, But to be better than I used to be.” This is the basic principle that these greats are based on.
