Rafa Nadal, a clay court master, is struggling to assert his dominance on the soft surface this season but is currently cruising through the Madrid Open, in Spain.

The 32-year-old has an 83% win record this season and since losing the 2019 Australian Open final to Novak Djokovic, has yet to reach another tournament final.

On Saturday, he takes on Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Madrid Open semi-final and, should he emerge triumphant, it will be his first final on clay this year but he will once again meet Djokovic in a competition's finale.

It is a far cry from his rampant successes last year, when he had already won two titles by May, went on to win the Italian Open, before scooping the French Open the clay major in June.

Victory against Tsitsipas and Djokovic, though, could spark a winning run ahead of the French Open this year, something Nadal will be determined to win again to add to his 17 Grand Slam championships to date.

One more major championship and he will close the gap on the all-time Grand Slam leader Roger Federer to just two titles.

But how does the superstar tennis player fuel his body?

It turns out that his diet is largely focused on one key ingredient.

Here's the kind of food Rafa Nadal likes to have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
