If Rafael Nadal wins his way through two more matches here at Melbourne Park, he stands to win a cool $3.6 million in prize money.
It’s enough to buy a couple of houses, it’s prize money alone that he could conceivably retire on, or, naturally, he could buy approximately three watches.
Sound unrealistic? Well, that’s because you haven’t eyed the wrist-candy Nadal draped himself in last night in his Australian Open quarter final.
Last night, as Nadal took to Rod Laver Arena, all eyes were on his big hitting, his crafty shots – oh and his $1.2 million dollar watch.
With everyone ball he threw his body at, with every jump, sprint and lunge, Nadal had more money sitting on his wrist than most mortgages.
The watch in question was a Richard Mille timepiece, the RM 27-02, which was specially designed for the tennis superstar.
