Fans were left impressed after Rafael Nadal once again showcased his football skills

Rafael Nadal has had a great season overall. He won his 2nd Australian Open title and 14th French Open title but in recent months, he has been pegged back with a lot of nagging injuries. The southpaw had to pull out ahead of his Wimbledon semifinal against Nick Kyrgios after suffering a tear in his abdomen. Since then, the Spaniard has tried to adjust his serve and that has not helped him.

Lack of game time has also harmed Nadal’s chances in his last couple of tournaments. In the US Open, Nadal was ousted in the round of 16 by Frances Tiafoe. Nadal returned at the Paris Masters in hope of winning his first title at the Masters 1000 event. However, his campaign ended in the first round when he lost to Tommy Paul in the round of 32.

The 36-year-old has arrived in Turin to take part in the ATP Finals. He will begin his campaign against Taylor Fritz in the round-robin stage of the competition. During practice, Nadal showed his immaculate football skills as he juggled with a tennis ball. The 22-time Grand Slam champion’s love for football is not unknown. He is an avid fan of Real Madrid and has also shown glimpses of his football skills every now and then during his practice sessions. The latest video of Nadal juggling a tennis ball with both feet has gone viral and received a lot of affection.
