Rafael Nadal always has time for his fans and it showed when cameras caught him taking a number of selfies with fans who repeatedly interrupted him during his workout at the Australian Open.

Despite Melbourne in lockdown and the Australian Open hindered by no crowds, it hasn't stopped eager credited workers/fans taking the opportunity of less crowds to share a rare moment with the Spaniard.

FARCICAL: Oblivious spectator ejected in comical scenes

The World No.2 was filmed on the bike during a workout when the first fan walked over and could be seen asking for a quick selfie.

The 20-time Grand Slam champ happily obliged.

But cameras caught a slew of fans also taking the opportunity to catch Nadal alone working out.

Nadal didn't reject any of the fans and some pointed out the classy moment from the Spaniard who was trying to get threw a workout.

Nadal battled past Fabio Fognini in the 4th Round of the Australian and set up a clash with Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-final.

Rafa Nadal's moment with Serena Williams

Earlier in the tournament, a camera picked up a classic moment between Nadal and Serena Williams.

Nadal was waiting in the tunnel, with his first round match against Serbia's Laslo Dere set for Tuesday on Rod Laver Arena.

The Spaniard had a collection of racquets in his hand and was talking to another man when Williams strolled up to him.

The American stopped right next to Nadal, who still hadn't seen her approach and seemed startled when she stopped right next to his face.

Nadal jumped back in shock before realising that it was Williams, who had come over to have a chat with the World No.2.

Both players pulled their face masks down so they could hear one another better, with Nadal’s initial shock giving way to a friendly conversation between the pair.

The rare moment between the tennis legends left fans in awe on social media.
