It was a sad finish for Rafael Nadal yesterday after getting stunned in five sets by Gilles Muller 15-13 in the fifth. But before the match, there was a lighter moment involving the Spaniard.
While waiting in the hallway of Court 1, Nadal did his customary pre-match warm-up jumps. Except Nadal, perhaps not being accustomed to being in Court 1, hit his head on the top of the door way! You could hear the bump. Nadal stumbled backwards and he and Muller had a laugh.
“No, nothing. It’s okay. Just small accident,” a somber Nadal said.
Added Muller, “Maybe that’s why the first two sets I was winning quite easy. Maybe still a little bit feeling dizzy, I don’t know.”
Maybe the Rafa bump did impact the match? Maybe he got a concussion?
