Rafael Nadal cramps up during victory speech, laughs through it anyway

New, comments

Rafa Nadal won the Hamburg Open today which is a positive sign for the Spaniard as we move closer to the US Open at the end of this month.

However, it was the trophy ceremony that proved the most difficult task of the day. During his victory speech, Nadal started to cramp and couldn't do anything about it.

Laughing while writhing in pain, all he could do was joke:

This was a very important win for me, I hope to see you soon again and now I don't know what to do but thank you very much everybody.

Get the guy some fluids, dammit!
