Rafael Nadal is one of the nicest and classiest players in tennis, and he again showed why on Monday. Despite fourth round loss, he was waiting patiently for Gilles Muller to gather his gear so they can exit the arena side by side after a classic match.
The packed crowd on Court One noticed Rafa’s gracious act and rose to their feet, arguably cheering louder for Rafa than Muller. Rafa also stopped to sign some autographs.
Tennis fans, media and players worldwide also took to social media to praise our champ!
