A few obvious Rafael Nadal fans were spotted watching their boy battle Gilles Simon in the Oz Open quarterfinals.
The world's top baller wasn't at his sublime best but still defeated his French foe 6-2, 7-5, 7-5 and will next face his powerful compartriot Fernando Verdasco, who defeated last year's runner-up Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, for a spot in Sunday's final.
As we all know, not everyone was excited about the Mallorcan Matador getting sleeved and these fans here were sure to let Rafa know. So it's good to see him acknowledge his fans at the match and give them a little something to satisfy their needs:
Unfortunately for some of the Rafanatics, the Spaniard didn't go all Frenchie with Sneaky Simon post-match but I guess beggars can't be choosers...
