World No. 1 Rafael Nadal posted a quick Facebook video of himself playing soccer on the Playstation during some down time in Monte Carlo. Nadal is shown with Juan Monaco, David Ferrer and Albert Montanes enjoying their (second) favorite sport, soccer.

And based on the reaction (sorry, I cannot translate), it sounds like Nadal and Monaco scored a goal or they won the match.

If he didn’t win the soccer the game, Nadal at least won his match on the court today easily trouncing Jarkko Nieminen, his 25th straight on the clay. Ferrer was also a winner today.

Nina Says:

They scored a goal, lol, and Ferrer was complaining that it was not fair. Hilarious.


dari Says:

That was an off-court wedge pick at about 24s mark. That’s the worst reflex tick to have, hope he grows out of it. Pretty cute stuff, daveed can’t believe it Haha!


skeezerweezer Says:

off-court wedge pick? dari toooo funny lol :)


Anna Says:

Good catch Dari! I missed it completely. The on court pick (or tug) will probably retire with his tennis, but off court, well, aren’t we all guilty from time to time. This is gold though.


Naresh Says:

Which football game are they playing.. FIFA 10 ?”off-court wedge pick”.. hillarious !


Lulu Iberica Says:

I swear if Rafa was ever in need, I’d take him in like a lost puppy. So darn adorable! Yeah, the wedge picking is a bad tick, but better than nose picking, I guess! I’m surprised Uncle Toni never broke him of that habit.


Rojet Says:

Nice to see those guys relaxing together. I think Rafa should work on & bring out a new underwear with an advertisement showing him doing no on-and-off court wedge picks – Funny. He is a real classy guy!
