Pre-match head banging for Rafa

Save

It’s not funny, even if Rafael Nadal had a good chuckle about it with opponent Gilles Muller before entering No. 1 Court for their fourth-round match Monday.

In doing his usual pre-match jumping thing, Nadal misjudged his surroundings. (perhaps because he’s not played on No. 1 Court all that much in recent years).

He ended up banging his head – hard, on the top of the doorway.

Nadal quickly went out and lost the first two sets to Muller, the No. 16 seed and fellow lefty who is on a fine run of grass form.
