Maria Sharapova ticked an item off her bucket-list by practicing with Rafael Nadal in the run-up to the Italian Open in Rome.

And guess what? Sharapova won the rally as she took to her official Twitter handle to share a video of it, revealing she was nervous before getting on court with Nadal.

Everything was fine until she wrote the caption: “Two minutes on court with the GOAT @RafaelNadal #BucketList Was so nervous.”

Sharapova labelling Nadal the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) didn’t go down well with the fans of Roger Federer, who is largely touted with the valued acronym.

“I’m sorry, I don’t see Federer anywhere in this video,” one comment read. “GOAT?? Rafa? You for real? Watch more tennis, Roger is the [GOAT],” another user wrote.

Nadal, though, was kind enough to leave a quick reply. “Thanks Maria! It’s been a pleasure hitting with the you a few balls,” he wrote.

Both Sharapova and Nadal are in Rome for this week’s Italian Open.
