Tennis: Nadal wins Prague charity poker event
PRAGUE (AFP) - Rafael Nadal showed he was not tired of dethroning world number one players when he saw off Daniel Negreanu to win a charity poker tournament in Prague on Thursday.
The 100,000-euro (S$172,690) tournament was the first-ever live poker event for the 27-year-old Spaniard, who had stripped Serbia's Novak Djokovic of the world's top spot in tennis this year.
Nadal has been a fervent poker player since a knee injury sidelined him from his day job last year, but had so far only played in online poker tournaments.
"I had fun. I had a great experience here playing with friends, playing for a good cause, for charity," Nadal said after the game.
