Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal was left impressed when he met Bollywood star Deepika Paudukone in New Delhi on Saturday.

Before his big duel against Roger Federer in the Indian Premier Tennis League on Saturday night, Rafa tweeted a picture of himself with Deepika and wrote on his page: "With the incredible Deepika Padukone in #Delhi!."

The photograph got nearly 20,000 'likes' on Facebook and got more than 500 'retweets'.

The World No 5, representing the Indian Aces in the Indian Premier Tennis League, is in the Capital for the high-profile weekend showdown with Swiss legend Roger Federer of the UAE Royals.

“The rivalry with Roger has been great for a lot of years and we hope to play more matches. Day after (when they clash in IPTL) it will be a great scenario here (in India) for fans. I am excited to play against him here,” Nadal had said, talking about his famed rivalry with the Swiss master, at a press brief on Thursday.
