Camera-shy Rafael Nadal contrasts with charismatic Novak Djokovic

Rafael Nadal is widely known for his soft-spoken and shy nature, and an old video from 2010 recently resurfaced, showing just that. The Spaniard is one of the greatest tennis players of all time, with 22 Major titles under his belt. His competitiveness and grounded nature have contributed to his immense popularity in the tennis world. The Babolat bag check video from 2010, in which a 24-year-old Nadal shared the contents of his kit, gained attention once again, prompting funny reactions from tennis fans on social media. Although some fans found his delivery awkward, others found him quirky and hilarious. Nadal, who has been out of action for nearly a year, is set to make his comeback at the ATP 250 tournament in Brisbane. Currently ranked 667th in the world, he needed a wildcard to enter the main draw. Nadal’s previous appearance at the Brisbane International was in 2017, where he reached the quarterfinals, despite enduring an injury layoff before the event. With the Melbourne Slam approaching, Nadal will be looking to gain valuable match practice in Brisbane.
