A fun story is emerging from Rafael Nadal’s routine 61, 62 win over Marinko Matosevic today at the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters. According to TennisTv commentator Nick Lester, at the 5-2 changeover in the second set Matosevic knocked over Nadal’s water bottles.
We’ve been waiting for someone to do it, and apparently Matosevic did! Finally!
Just had a chat with Ash Fisher who confirmed that Matosevic did kick Rafa’s water bottles over at 52 in 2nd,said RN took it in good humour.

In the video below, you can’t see the Australian actually kick the bottles, but you do see a smile from Nadal as he sits in his chair and also a glance from Matosevic. It seems to be a light-hearted moment for both players. So no ill will between the two.
If I can find any conclusive video/evidence I will post along with quotes from the players regarding this topic. For now you will have to move ahead to the 1:00 hour mark to see the alleged incident:
