Rafa Nadal gave the scare in his quarter-final match of the Rome Masters 1000 against Zverev. The Spaniard suffered a strong fall when he tried to reach a ball that had fallen short near the net. The Spaniard ran but stumbled before reaching the ball and ended up on the ground after a spectacular somersault.
Nadal was trying at that time to close the first set of the clash against Zverev. Despite the important cost, which led him to spend a few seconds lying on the track, Nadal even hit and put the ball on the track, although he lost the point. Finally, the Spaniard took the first set 6-3.
