VIDEO: This winner from Rafa Nadal in Doha today is unbelievable
He might have lost but this was still class
Rafa Nadal is trying to edge his way back to full sharpness after a disastrous end of 2014 saw him first struck down with a wrist injury and then appendicitis, and 2015 has not got off to a good start.
The former World Number 1 was playing Michael Berrer of Germany today in round one of the Qatar Open and promptly lost 1-6,6-3,6-1.
Despite Nadal clearly being short of his best he still managed to give us a glimpse of his talent with this inch-perfect winner down the line.
Let's hope he's back to his best shortly ahead of the first Grand Slam of the year in a few weeks.
