Rafael Nadal is not only the King of Clay and one of the greatest of the sport, he is also a fantastic living example of sportsmanship.

What happened?

Rafa and Stefanos Tsitsipas were engaged in a tough battle in the second set of the Toronto final. Even if Rafa was leading 6-2 5-3, the Greek was coming back strongly, and the tension was pretty high.

When leading 30-15, Stefanos missed his first serve as a fan shouted during the ball toss. The Greek asked to repeat the serve, but the umpire denied that. Going against his own interest, it was Rafa to concede the repetition of the point showing once again his fantastic sportsmanship.

An act of a champion!
