This kind of thing does not happen often in the sports games.
A little girl who came to the tennis game with her mother was lost in the crowd. She searched for her mother crying and on the other side of the stadium, her mother was looking for her little girl with a terrified face.
During a doubles exhibition match of a famous tennis player Rafael Nadal and John McEnroe in Mallorca, Nadal heard rumblings of the crowd and looked up the crowd. He saw a woman with a face of fear losing her daughter and stopped the entire match on his serve turn.
The players waited on the court until the situation is over. Pausing a game is not an easy decision to make for the players. They have to risk losing; it’s hard to concentrate again on the match after the pause. However, in this game, they did not mind. Finding the lost child was the most important thing at the moment.
The daughter was found on the other side of the stadium and they reunited and cried. The crowd applauded the players for pausing the match and relieved to find the lost kid.
Losing a child is not a rare accident in a crowded area. Since there are so many people, one’s child might disappear while turning one’s head for a moment. It sometimes happens.
Thanks to two players and the crowd, a mother and her lost child could ran to each other quickly.
Nadal was brave to stop the entire game. Please watch the video below and SHARE if you are happy for the reunited family.
Nadal is known to voice his opinions on other matters, too. Here, watch him speak out about fellow tennis star Maria Sharapova — and how she has to pay for her sins.
