The World’s number one tennis star, Rafael Nadal, took a quick detour en route to the PTT Thailand Open to participate in Thailand’s ‘A Million Trees For The King’ project.
Nadal flew to the royal beach town of Hua Hin where he planted a tree in honor of King Bhumibol Adulyadej at the Kasetsart University Veterinary Hospital
Nadal, the top seed at the PTT Thailand Open, felt honored to take part in the campaign to reduce global warming.
“For me it’s an honor to part of this project,” said Nadal. “It’s a very good project. I want to congratulate the Thai people and congratulate the King for this unbelievable day. I wish all the best for this idea. It’s very, very nice.”
In addition to helping better this world, Nadal also took part in a religious ceremony with Buddhist monks on the beach over the weekend.
“I did a lot of things,” Nadal said, “I was with friends. I was on the beach, very nice beach. We did water sports, we went to golf one time, we went [go-carting] another time. So we did a lot of things. We went there, having fun in Hua Hin and enjoying a lot.”
