It's not unusual for a 39 year old tennis lover to take a selfie with a tennis great such as Rafael Nadal at a tennis tournament. However, it is somewhat unusual when the 39 year old is a former World No. 1 and seven-time Grand Slam champion herself.
Venus Williams was like any other fan in Acapulco when she took a chance to take a selfie of herself with the 19-time Grand Slam champion Nadal in the background. Even sister Serena liked the pic and made a comment on the pic, saying 'Lol Love”.
Both players are in Acapulco for the ATP/ WTA event there. Williams, seeded No. 5 in the tournament, meets Slovenian player Kaja Juvan in the first round and is also scheduled to play her first round match on Wednesday. She will be hoping to do better than the Australian Open where she lost to teenager Coco Gauff in the first round.
American Sloane Stephens is the top seed in the women's draw. Nadal takes on Pablo Andujar in the first round on Wednesday and could meet Australia's Alex De Minaur in the second round. Nadal lost in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open to Austria's Dominic Thiem.
Some of the other top men competing with Nadal for the title this week include German Alexander Zverev, Swiss Stan Wawrinka, American John Isner and Australian Nick Kyrgios.
