Rafael Nadal was bounced early from Wimbledon on Monday, losing to 16th seed Gilles Muller in a grueling five-hour thriller.
When a match is taking that long, Nadal has no time for turning to his left and throwing trash away.
After the Spanish tennis star enjoyed an electrolyte supplement, he called over a Wimbledon ballboy to discard his trash. Nadal might have been unaware that a trash can was directly next to him, but the young ballboy’s enthusiastic response made the moment amazing.
You have to respect that hustle. That young guy went full speed to run three feet and place the trash in the bin.
The fact that Nadal didn’t look at the bin before requesting the ballboy’s help makes me think that he simply had no idea the bin was right there. He’s a world-class athlete after all.
Either way, the real winner is the ballboy. He’s exceptional at his job.
