Rafael Nadal was the protagonist of a curious episode during the second round match of the Australian Open 2020, against the Argentinian Federico Delbonis. The Spaniard unintentionally hit a ball boy with a ball after an inaccurate response.
Immediately worried about the condition of the young girl, Rafa went to the ball boy and kissed her on the cheek to apology. Also for these gestures the Spaniard is considered a great champion. Rafa then won the match against Federico Delbonis in three sets (6-3 7-6(4) 6-1) in 2 hours and 32 minutes, qualifying for the third round of the Australian Open, where he will face his countryman Pablo Carreno-Busta.
