Nadal wins Prague charity poker event
 
 
 

PRAGUE - 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. The 100,000-euro tournament was the first-ever live poker event for Nadal, who has been a fervent poker player since a knee injury sidelined him 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. “The next thing I know is that tomorrow morning I will be on court practicing tennis.” Besides Negreanu, the world number one poker player, Nadal beat Italian downhill star Alberto Tomba, past football legends Ronaldo and Andriy Shevchenko, and finally Dutch field hockey champion Fatima Moreira de Melo in the heads-up.–AFP
