Nadal meets ‘friend’ Anita

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

World num­ber one Rafael Nadal planted a kiss on the cheek of a ball­girl he ac­ci­den­tally hit in the face with a shot on Thurs­day - and on Fri­day, he made it up to her all over again.

‘Had the chance to meet her and her fam­ily to­day,’ the 33 year old tweeted. ‘So happy she is well after the scari­est mo­ment I’ve had on a tennis court. Anita is a brave girl!’

Nadal also gave the 13 year old a cap, ac­cord­ing to lo­cal me­dia, and signed it, ‘To my friend, Anita.’

“He’s very friendly and nice, he’s very kind and shows re­ally great sports­man­ship,” the Her­ald Sun quoted Anita as say­ing, adding that she spent about 20 min­utes with the tennis ace.
