Mallorca Pro Sport: Ups and Downs

There were contrasting fortunes and a case of 'you win some, you lose some,'

There were contrasting fortunes and a case of 'you win some, you lose some,' for Mallorca's professional sportsmen over the weekend.

Let's start with the bad news as we reveal that the island's first division football team, RCD Mallorca, known as
The Red Devils, suffered the same fate as their Manchester counterparts at the hands of Real Madrid, a 5 – 2 drubbing on Saturday night. The loss leaves them floundering in the relegation zone,
third from bottom, above only Celta and Deportivo.



 

On a happier note, Mallorca's most famous sporting son, Rafa Nadal, emphasised his return to form and winning ways after a long lay off
with a knee injury by beating Juan Martín del Potro in the final of the Indian Wells championship. It's his 600th career win and puts him into 4th position in the world tennis rankings.

I wonder what he'll do with the $1 million prize money?
