Winner at the 2017 International Latino Book Awards. From the beginning, honesty and true values have always guided the great tennis player Rafa Nadal through success.

"Once upon a time, there was a little boy who loved tennis and soccer, just like so many other children in every corner of the world. He was four years old and he spent the whole day kicking a ball around and glued to a tennis racket". Rafa Nadal developed an innate talent for tennis as a child, and he always had a beacon of light that reminded him of what is truly important: respect, commitment, family, truth, responsibility.

The What Really Matters Series presents real-life stories of people who realized their greatest potential despite challenges presented to them. Endorsed by the main characters, it benefits the What Really Matters Foundation, which promotes universal human values by showcasing extraordinary achievements by inspiring people.
