Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have had many intense battles over the years, both at slams and on other Masters tournaments as well. Despite their battles at the French Open being mostly one-sided with Nadal taking the charge, Federer managed to put up stiff competition as and when possible.

One such matches where the Swiss Maestro gave a tough fight to the Spaniard was at the 2011 French Open. After losing a tightly contested first two sets, Federer fought back emphatically to win the third before Nadal ended up with the fourth set and also his sixth French Open crown.

Amidst all the banter on Twitter during this Federer-Nadal match, one esteemed tennis star seemed to have her own share of fun watching that battle. American tennis star Serena Williams went on a tweeting spree talking about Nadal’s butt.

Nadal has a big booty… 🙂 lol”, wrote Serena.

The 23-time major champion came up with another tweet on the Spaniard.

Wow Nadal and his booty is killing it! he’s amazing”. 

The American further wrote, “Me and Nadal are Booty siblings! We see cheek to cheek”. 

While there is no response from Nadal over Serena’s appreciation tweets towards him, the light-heartedness of the American during an intense final between two of the game’s greats will be remembered.
