I'm sure some on here have read the Greg Baum piece about the process of interviewing Nadal. I enjoyed the juxtaposition of a Fairfax paper coming out with a hint of righteousness while the Murdoch papers just rolled with it.
Rafael Nadal might be a good bloke. Or not. I’ve never met him face-to-face. I had the chance this week. Ahead of the Australian Open, I was offered a one-on-one interview. But there were strings attached. In tennis, there are always strings. The interview would last 10 minutes, 15 max. The questions to be asked would have to be submitted in advance. And one would have to be about a travel insurance agency that is sponsoring Nadal.
It is why he attempts to keep things as normal and grounded as possible, appearing as relaxed as ever in blue chinos and a white Nike T-shirt this week to promote InsureandGo’s ‘Go There’ campaign on level three of Crown Metropol.
Nadal is the face of a new advertising campaign for the Australian online travel insurer which is a subsidiary of MAPFRE, which he has been with for more than 10 years.
