Pictures from Rafael Nadal’s practice session with Mikhail Youzhny on Day 9 of the 2014 Australian Open, prior to the Quarterfinals.
Rafa defeated Kei Nishikori in the fourth round and will play Grigor Dimitrov in the Quarterfinals at the end of the day session on Wednesday 22 January.
During the practice session on Tuesday 21 January, Rafa’s left hand appeared to be wrapped in more tape than usual following his fourth round match, but it didn’t seem to impair Rafa in any way during his practice.
Until next time
