We have always known that world number two Rafael Nadal is a well-known Real Madrid fan, but a curiosity about the tennis legend is that the 20 times Grand Slam title champion also talked about his favourite soccer club during a tennis matches.
It is happened during the final of the ATP 500 in Barcelona, when Rafael Nadal, engaged in the match against Stefanos Tsitsipas, was caught in a video while together with the chair umpire Lahyani he discussed the performances of Real Madrid.
The Spaniard agreed in speaking of a real disaster and only the Champions League could save the season. For his part, the chair judge commented: "We need an attacker" and Rafa closed by saying 'And many other things', cutting short to get back on track and think only of the match.
Here is the video:
