Okay, this was clearly a mock up game. Still the charity donation could have hold another zero at the end overall, but who am I to bitch about this? Smile

Rafa looked a bit slimmer than usual or Im barely watching tennis and he always thin like this?

Cheers yeah Nadal is getting paid for just playing winning or losing is just for show and he will get his money at the end of the day through membership, glad they are playing for charity and the video is fun to watch with a pro athlete against pro poker players. Both pros! Different fields cheers!

Vanessa was always going to be hard to beat, i just wish we could see more of this video to gauge what kind of poker player Rafael Nadal is. Nice donation for the charity though so well done to the two of them

He's always smilling, i guess it should be easy to read him at a poker table. But he shouldn't be playing always this way, as PS wants him to enter other type of events and i'm sure they want him to make a good figure, at least to hold on for a while and not being one of the first to be put away.

Looks like it was fun.

But they could have donated much more. 5000$ is nothing for both of them and it is even less for Pokerstars.

Not sure if it was rigged or not but since Vanessa won i think it was pretty fair, right?

As noticed in the posts above as long as money were donated to charity it was a good thing, so kudos to stars, rafa and vanessa Smile

Vanessa played clearly better.

Only big luck could help Nadal to win.
