MELBOURNE – Game face squarely ON for Rafael Nadal in the late afternoon Thursday, as he warmed up with coach Carlos Moyá for his second-round night match against veteran Marcos Baghdatis.
Not entirely sold on the kit. But there are a lot worse out there, that’s for sure.
One selfie-seeking employee, part of the cleaning crew, wasn’t so lucky. After getting an autograph and pushing his luck for a photo (after tucking his credential in because he was in a restricted area and KNEW he wasn’t allowed), he got a talking-to from security and but for the guy’s big heart, would have had his accred revoked (and his job along with it).
That’s a pretty big risk to take just to get an autograph. Even if it’s Nadal.
