World No. 1 Rafael Nadal has once again melted hearts of the tennis fans worldwide after his gesture toward a ball girl at the Australian Open. One of Nadal's returns accidentally hit a ball girl in the head and the Spaniard immediately ran toward the ball girl to check out if she was alright.
On the relief of many, the ball girl was alright and Nadal gave her kiss on the cheek as part of his apology. After beating Federico Delbonis, Nadal reflected on the scary moment as he said: "For her probably was not a good moment.
I was so scared for her, honestly. The ball was quick and straight on the head. She’s a super brave girl. It [has] been one of the more scary moments I’ve had on the tennis court”. 19-time Grand Slam champion Nadal went to the girl after the match and gifted her with the headband he wore.
