Rafael Nadal has filed a defamation lawsuit against former French minister Roselyne Bachelot.
Rafael Nadal filed a defamation lawsuit Monday against former French minister Roselyne Bachelot.
Bachelot, who previously served as France’s minister for health and sport, accused the Spaniard of doping during her appearance last month on French television show Le Grand 8. She claimed that Nadal’s seven-month injury respite from tennis in 2012 was “probably due to a positive doping test.”
If the 14-time Grand Slam singles champion wins the case, he will reportedly award his earnings to an NGO or French foundation.
