Spanish tennis superstar Rafael Nadal claimed a straight-sets win in the first round of the French Open at Roland Garros, but not before he suffered an embarrassing collision with a courtside camera.
The tennis star entered the arena for his first-round match with Yannick Hanfmann at the Philippe Chatrier court looking relaxed and confident.
But he didn’t walk in with the smoothest entrance. The Spanish ace caught the corner of a camera as he walked onto the playing surface.
Clearly surprised, Nadal turned to check on what he’d just accidentally collided with before turning and making his way back onto court.
Not his first time hitting his head at Roland Garros.

In majors, Nadal has won a record 11 French Open titles, so if he has to hit his head to win again, so be it.
