#TBT – The Impact take on the ATP

THROWBACK THURSDAY – To commemorate the Montreal Impact’s big playoff win Thursday in Montreal, here’s a flashback to the Rogers Cup.

During the qualifying weekend, members of the Montreal Impact invaded Uniprix Stadium to take on the ATP Tour players in a soccer friendly – and then, take on Nadal.

The lucky loser for the Impact was Ignacio Piatti, who was quite prepared to make himself look, well, not in his element.

Nadal, soccer guy that he is, politely declined to take part in the game, worried about injury (we figured Gaël Monfils would be at much greater risk, since the guy can hurt himself getting out of his chair and doesn’t know anything but full speed ahead, but luckily he came out unscathed).

He was willing to play a little tennis, though.
