Nadal Victory Match-Worn Shirt, Madrid Open 2017
Take home this violet Nike shirt, worn by the Spanish tennis champion Rafael Nadal for the Final Match of the Mutua Madrid Open 2017, played at Caja Màgica Sunday, May 14, 2017.
Nadal took the lead immediately in the first two sets (7-6; 6-4), beating his Austrian adversary, Dominic Thiem. He thus won his fifth trophy on his red home clay, and has matched Djokovic's number of Masters 1000 victories (30). With this victory, the Mallorcan tennis star has also outdone his long-time adversary Roger Federer, taking fourth place in the ATP ranking.
Nadal signed the front of the shirt, making it an even more unique piece of memorabilia.
The shirt has not been washed and shows signs of use.

The "Associazione AmicidiSean"—FriendsofSean Association—was founded to support Sean Hadfield and other people with his condition. Sean is a 24-year-old man who, at the age of 9, suffered an irreversible spinal cord injury, leaving him in a wheelchair. Due to the injury, he needs 24-hour care, which carries a high financial cost.
The objective of the association is to offer people with disabilities the highest quality of life possible with all the necessary care needed. The FriendsofSean Association also commits itself to giving a percentage of its funds raised to the Hospital Nacional de Paraplejicos de Toledo in Spain.
