Rafael Nadal’s serving ritual imitated by mayor in front of Halep

Emil Boc, the mayor of Cluj-Napoca, one of the largest Romanian cities and the home of Transylvania Open and the upcoming Untold Festival, replicated Rafael Nadal’s well-known pre-serve ritual at Horia Tecau’s retirement match, which unfolded at Sports Festival 2022.

The organizers of the Sports Festival invited the Romanian mayor to exchange some balls with Simona Halep and Horia Tecau as a thank-you gift for hosting such a great event. However, the mayor didn’t resume hitting the ball as best as he could.

Instead, he arranged his pants and shirt, and wiped out the sweat around his ears. And this was after he ordered his bottles like the 14 times Roland Garros winner Rafael Nadal.
