Meet Rafael Nadal's new fan Blake Lively

Wednesday September 15, 2010

Such is Rafael Nadal's cachet following Monday's US Open win, everyone wants to meet him.

As he celebrated becoming only the seventh champ in tennis' history to hold all four grand slam titles, Gossip Girl beauty Blake Lively asked for an introduction.

The pair seemed to get on like a house on fire when they chatted behind the scenes on a US chat show.

Back in his home country Spain on Wednesday morning, the sports ace had only one thing on his mind – catching his beloved Real Madrid in action.

Majorca-born Rafa is such a fan of the club, he often supports them over his own local side.

After a few hours sleep, the player plans to head to the Bernabeu stadium to see their Champions League game.
