London, June 23(ANI): Tennis ace Rafael Nadal would be honing his poker skills during his holidays, and has teamed up with online site PokerStars to work on his skills during what promises to be a busy few months.
Nadal plans to devote more time to poker and will represent PokerStars in online tournaments and advertising campaigns, as well as at charity events.
"It's no secret that I love to compete and try my very best in everything, whether that's tennis, golf or video games," The Sun quoted Nadal, as saying.
"When I discovered the game of poker, I chose to join PokerStars because they understand what it takes to be the best and associate themselves with the qualities of champions. I'm very happy to be working with them," he added.
"Rafa represents all that is great about competition - the mix of talent, intellect, dedication and mental strength that you find in champions in every sport," Mark Scheinberg, chairman of the board at PokerStars said.
"We are proud to have him as an ambassador for the brand and excited at the opportunity to help him enjoy and improve his game," he added. (ANI)
