Rafael Nadal can’t sign autographs and apologizes to fans: “Sorry!”

Rafael Nadal has once again shown off-court attitudes as a great tennis champion. A player who has dominated the scene throughout his career, especially on clay (countless triumphs at the Roland Garros), managing to reach 20 Grand Slam titles together with two pillars of this sport such as Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.

The Spaniard is currently in Australia to prepare for the first prestigious appointment of the season: the Manacor native, in fact, is competing in the ATP 250 tournament in Melbourne before thinking exclusively of the 2022 edition of the Australian Open.

Due to current anti-COVID regulations, athletes cannot grant traditional autographs to fans occupying the stands of the sports facility and (obviously) have close contact with the public. On a recent occasion, the 35-year-old apologized to the fans for not being able to satisfy their desire to have an indelible memory of meeting him.

“Sorry. I’m sorry!” are the words spoken more than once by Rafa, who explained the situation to the fans who flocked, before being escorted by some security officers. Here is the video that captured the moment.
