Rafa’s Summer Set launched Fast4 Tennis last January 14 at the Margaret Court Arena. Prior to the main event, mixed doubles demonstrated the new format conceptualised by Tennis Australia. There was entertainment from dance numbers, players coming to the court enveloped in dry ice, and a deejay playing music between points. Nadal won the sets played against Omar Jasika (US Junior Open 2014 winner) and Mark Philouppousis (former world number 8). The culmination was a win in a five set ‘rematch’ of the 2009 semi-final against fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco. The proceeds goes to the Rafa Nadal Foundation and Tennis Australia.
