Female fan proposes to Rafael Nadal at Australian Open (video)
In tennis, especially if it’s a Grand Slam tournament, fans are expected to be quiet and reserved. However, during Rafael Nadal’s second round Australian Open encounter against Slovakia’s Lukas Lacko, a female admirer picked the perfect moment to shout a quick marriage proposal at the Spaniard.
The woman yelled out, “Hey Nadal, will you marry me?” And although the defending champion ignored it at first, it eventually caused him to pause briefly and crack a smile.
In the end, Rafa eased to a straight set victory against Lacko, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2, winning in less than two hours to improve his career record at Melbourne Park.
