Rafael Nadal comforts ball girl

Rafael Nadal produced a “scary” moment and followed it up with an “awwww” moment at the Australian Open after he accidentally hit a ball girl.

The world No 1 took on world No 76 Federico Delbonis from Argentina in the second round at Melbourne Park and the Spaniard accidentally hit a ball girl on the head.

He immediately rushed over to the girl and comforted her before giving her a peck on the cheek.

“For her it was not a good moment, I was so scared for her, the ball was quick and straight on her,” Nadal said after the match on Rod Laver Arena.

“She’s a super brave girl. It has been one of the more scary moments of my career. I’m very happy she is good. She is brave. Well done.”

The 19-time Grand Slam winner booked his place in the third round with a 6-3, 7-6 (7-4), 6-1 victory and he will face his compatriot Pablo Carreno Busta, who beat German Peter Gojowczyk 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-4.
