Forget Stamps, Give Him a Planetary Body

Most hometowns give their champion athletes a commemorative stamp or something, but Rafael Nadal’s hometown of Mallorca had an asteroid named after him. This particular asteroid was discovered in 2003 at the Astronomical Observatory of Mallorca and was previously called 128036. I guess win you win a match like that you deserve something a little more than a postage stamp.
