Rafael Nadal urges French Open to fix camera position

For the second time in this year's French Open Rafael Nadal was touched by a camera on the Philippe Chatrier Stadium. The Spaniard suggested the workers should be more careful. "Well, there are so many artefacts around, that something could happen.

It didn't hurt me or anything. Okay, I touched the cable, but luckily -- well, I think the camera shouldn't be so close that I can touch it. The other day I went to the court, and I hit my head against the camera. I didn't split my head open, thanks to a miracle, because I was wearing a cap.

But, well, all these things are very important for information, for our sports. But sometimes they tend to forget that we're playing and we're in the middle. The camera, well, I went on this court 3,000 times, training, playing, and the camera is always there but it was never that close. Today nothing happened, but with the wrong gesture, something could have happened."
