Team PokerStars Pros are afforded some pretty cool things as being a representative of the largest online poker site on the planet. This past weekend one of the most recognizable names in poker Vanessa Selbst got to take on Rafa Nadal – the most high profile tennis player on the planet.
What was it like? Pretty surreal according to Selbst. While Nadal was better than she expected she found him not to be the confident upper echelon tennis player he is when smashing a tennis ball in your grill, but a shy and nervous twenty-something getting the hand of a whole new game.
So what about the fangirl factor? Nadal is a huge star, right?
“He’s probably, like, my number one, like, person that I follow, or whatever.”
So yea, it was a big deal.
