September 25th 2012 – (London) – Have you ever dreamed of trying your hand against sporting great Rafa Nadal in a series of skill and strategy games? Do you think you've got what it takes to beat an elite athlete who simply hates losing? Now's your chance as PokerStars is giving all fans the opportunity to compete against Rafa Nadal in both tennis and poker in Majorca this December in a unique experience called the Rafa Nadal Dream Day.

From 24th September fans of Rafa Nadal can compete in a free, bespoke poker tournament at with one winner earning the opportunity to meet Rafa in Spain. Not only will winners meet the sporting legend himself but they will also receive poker tuition from his personal poker coach, spend time with him on court knocking up and the chance to compete – and possibly beat - Rafa Nadal in his new sport of poker. This is a rare opportunity for fans to get such unrivalled access to a sporting superstar, spending time with Rafa where he grew up and still lives, with the opportunity to see how he relaxes outside the sport of tennis. What is even more incredible is that each of them could return from the experience and be able to say to friends ‘I beat Rafa Nadal.’

Not that Rafa Nadal wants it that way. “It’s always an amazing experience when I meet my fans, but I’ve never done anything like this before. I’ve spent time with them signing things and posing for photos but here they will actually be trying to beat me. This is something totally new for me.” Nadal said.

“I’m a very competitive person, you know, so if I’m on court, playing computer games or playing poker I just don't like losing and I always try to win. I’m still a beginner at this sport but I’ve got my poker coach so by the time I get to play against my fans I hope I'll be prepared. It’s going to be a lot of fun but I’ll be honest, I don’t want to lose!”  

The Rafa Nadal Dream Day experience will be held on the 1st and 2nd December 2012 in Majorca. The prize will include flights and accommodation for winners along with all meals and refreshments during the trip.
