Rafael Nadal might be a pro at demolishing his opponents on clay, but that level of daredevilry doesn’t stop him from putting a smile on someone’s face.

After beating Frenchman Richard Gasquet in a third-round clash on Sunday, Nadal rallied with a ball boy, ensuring his young fan’s dream comes true.

Soon after the game, which the King of Clay won 6-3, 6-2, 6-2, the on-court presenter told Nadal that the ball boy is his biggest fan ever.

"His dream is to play just one ball with you here at Roland Garros. He's a little bit nervous so he might miss the first ball," she said.

Nadal didn’t even waste a second before tossing the racket up to him. Watch the video here:
