Rafael Nadal is opening a tennis academy on his home island of Mallorca, Spain. It didn't take long for the 14-time Grand Slam champion to gain parents' trust with their kids.
During an exhibition match celebrating the opening of the academy -- featuring Nadal, tennis legend John McEnroe, former Spanish pro Carlos Moya and up-and-coming Spaniard Simon Solbas – Nadal was set to serve when he heard a ruckus in the crowd. Nadal halted the match, as a frantic mother searched the stands for her child.
The child was found and the match could go on. Nadal has a big grin on his face after this touching moment. McEnroe looks like he's crying. Or laughing. That part is unclear.
According to sportskeeda, Nadal waved to the woman and the two acknowledged each other.
