Nadal burns fingers on hot plate in restaurant
MASON, Ohio |
MASON, Ohio (Reuters) - Rafa Nadal is renowned for burning up calories with his all-action game but on Wednesday it was a curious case of burned fingers for the Spaniard at the Cincinnati Open.
World number two Nadal was forced to play his second round match with two bandaged fingers on his right hand after burning them on a hot plate at a restaurant in Ohio.
"I got burned. I had a little bit of accident in a restaurant a few days ago," Nadal told reporters after beating Frenchman Julien Benneteau 6-4 7-5.
"It was an accident. The plate was very, very hot and I got burned," added the Spaniard, who said the blistering was causing some discomfort during play.
"A little bit. If you see the blister, you can imagine. I am going to show you now," he said with a grin.
