Nadal does his finest Jamie Oliver impression


Hours after slowly rising in temperature at the All England club following a tepid pre-heat, Rafael Nadal brought his legions of fans an insight into his cooking habits on the road.

It took the world number two a little while to get started in his opening round contest at Wimbledon, eventually seeing off 80th-ranked Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci 7-6 6-2 6-3.

After an early double-break left the seven-time Roland Garros king 4-0 down in the first set, Rafa bounced back with four straight games of his own before finding his full flavour and cooking up a smooth advancement to the next round.

And in the above video, filmed by the Spaniard in his temporary living quarters for the tournament, we were provided with a little insight into his travel diet and kitchen manner.

It's safe to say that Marco Pierre White's job is safe, however.

How the land's top celebrity chefs would cope on court over five sets with Nadal, of course, is another story...
