Indian cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar lavished praise on tennis ace Rafael Nadal for his caring nature towards his rival Alexander Zverev during the semi-final of the ongoing French Open 2022 on Friday.

Tendulkar tweeted a picture of Nadal, talking and comforting an injured Zverev, and captioned it, "The humility and concern shown by Nadal is what makes him so special."
