(Newser) – Tennis No. 2 Rafael Nadal collapsed from cramps yesterday, not on the tennis court but during a press conference, reports the Independent. Sitting in a chair two hours after winning his third-round match in the US Open, Nadal suddenly started grimacing, then slipped to the ground. The room was cleared, and a trainer came to give him fluids and ice. "It was just a normal cramp that could have happened anywhere, but it happened in the press room," said Nadal, who was OK after just 10 minutes. "Anywhere else, nobody would have noticed."
