Video: Rafael Nadal Collapses from Cramps at U.S. Open Press Conference

Rafael Nadal is one of the most physically demonstrative athletes in all of sports. Sunday, he suffered an untimely cramp at a U.S. Open post-match conference (Nadal defeated David Nalbaldian in three sets to advance to the 4th round).

He provided a visceral depiction of just how painful one can be:

Nadal, having later recovered, stated that these kinds of cramps after matches are standard. Anyone still want to argue that tennis is “not a sport”?

About Argun M. Ulgen

When I was young, my dad and I used to watch a lot of MSG midnight replays of Knicks basketball after he came home from work. One night at 1am we grilled steaks and watched the Knicks somehow hold onto a 4th quarter lead. Sometime later, I started to fall in love with reading all sorts of literature, including sports books.The dawning of this romance came soon after my deep relationships with HBO reruns of its fine series programming, not to mention the Encore channel's more than generous replays of Scarface, came to a close. I write, but only when I don't feel like being idle. Feel free to AIM me at YoProtein (that's "Yo, Protein!") with comments or suggestions about my work. I more than welcome feedback.
