Rafa’s official site has a bit more information about the book we saw him with during the Barcelona tournament:

The following week, during his visit to Barcelona in order to play the Barcelona Open BancoSabadell tournament, Rafa took opportunity to launch the novel “Juego, set y partido”.

This book , aimed at children from nine years old, tells a fiction story inspired on Rafa’s life and written by the author Jordi Serra i Fabra. It relates the first adventures of Sergio, a youngster who stands out for his great qualities in the two sports he practices at once (tennis and football) and who, at his only twelve, is called to face his first big decision: to choose one of them.

The work, written in Spanish and available at any bookstore in Spain, is a joint initiative of the Rafa Nadal Foundation, the Iberostar Foundation and the publisher Destino Infantil y Juvenil, hoped to contribute spreading values such as effort, dedication and comradeship, as well as encouraging reading among the youngsters.

The profits from the novel are going entirely to the Rafa Nadal Foundation, starting his first charity activities to help the most underprivileged children.
