Alex Eala, who is from Philippines, has been training at the Rafael Nadal Academy since she was 12. She is the first Filipino to win a junior grand slam title.
Caper Ruud, who reached the world number 2 ranking after reaching two grand slam finals this year – at the French Open and the US Open- has been training at the Rafael Nadal Academy since 2018.
