‘For him, it might not be a good moment. To be honest I am very worried about him. The ball is very fast and straight to his head. She is really a brave girl,’ Nadal said as quoted by the official tournament website.

‘That was one of the frightening moments I have experienced on a tennis court,’ he added.

Nadal then also met Anita and her family. He shared the moment of his meeting with Anita with a selfie uploaded on his social media.

Nadal won the match with a score of 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-1. The owner of 19 grand slam titles will next face his compatriot, Pablo Carreno Busta, in the third round.
