People may think that Rafael Nadal can do no wrong at Roland Garros, and you’d have to forgive them for it given his record.

However, he proved that things can go wrong for him at the French Open as he made his way onto court to play Yannick Hanfmann on Monday.

As he walked out onto Court Philippe Chatrier, a he smacked his head on a massive TV camera, as the video below shows.

Luckily for Nadal the match itself went much better!

He was rarely tested as he played on the showpiece court for the first time since it’s rebuild, easing to a 6-2, 6-1, 6-3 win.

“It’s always amazing to play here, the new Chatrier is very nice,” the second seed said after the match.

“It’s been an important place in my career.

“I played a good tournament in Rome which was very important for my confidence. Now we’ll see.”
