At Rolex Paris Masters 2019, Rafael Nadal knocked down the three-time Grand Slam champion, Stan Wawrinka in the round of 16. Rafa took some time to get accustomed to the fiery single-hand backhands from Wawrinka’s side, but in the end, the Spaniard was successful in taking out the Swiss 6-4, 6-4.
World Number two, Rafael Nadal came up with some unreal skills as he made a winning return while Stan Wawrinka slammed a smash from the net. The lasso forehand from Rafa dropped jaws in the house.
How does he do it?! 😳
