NADAL: A famous face isn't enough to get in

RAFAEL Nadal was refused entry to the Paris Masters courts because a guard didn’t recognise him.

The tournament employee had no idea who the World No.1 was, and the awkward moment was captured by French TV.

“Hello sir, have you got your pass?” the security guard asked the world’s most famous tennis player, and a surprised Nadal responded: “I don’t have it with me.”

The guard asked Nadal who he was and got the world-renowned name in response.

The Spaniard was then immediately allowed through to the training courts.

Nadal was forced to pull out of the tournament with a knee injury before facing Serbian player Filip Krajinovic in the quarter-finals.

American Jack Sock won his first Masters title after beating Krajinovic.
