During his on-court interview with Marion Bartoli, Rafael Nadal was asked if he would play against the young admirer Leo.
Our champ was all smiles as he exchanged a couple of rallies with the ball boy to warm applause from the crowd. Watch!
It was a good feeling. It’s so nice when you have a chance to play with kids that normally only watch you on TV.
I have been on the other part of the situation, being a kid and playing with professional tennis players when I was 12 or 11 and having an amazing feeling.
Probably for him, today was a great day, especially here on this amazing court.
