Rafael Nadal Halts Tennis Match To Help Distressed Mom Find Her Daughter

Tennis star Rafael Nadal has his priorities straight.

The fourth ranked played in the world halted his doubles match against John McEnroe and Spain’s Carlos Moya to make sure a mother found her daughter in the stands.

With Nadal serving in an exhibition match in Mallorca, there was a commotion in the crowd and when the former No. 1 ace looked up, he saw a distraught mother frantically searching for her young child.

Once the crowd of 7,000 realized what was going on, they were able to locate her.

Here’s the footage:
