Yes, this really happened. On Monday night, the iconic Madison Square Garden played host not to a New York Knicks basketball game, but rather to the BNP Paribas Showdown. Tennis superstars Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro were facing off in an exhibition, and took the word extremely literally.
Instead of rifling tennis balls at one another, the two elite players instead had fun with their match. Nadal raced into the stands and grabbed none other than Ben Stiller, bringing the celeb onto the court and grabbing him a racket.
Not willing to play 1-on-2, del Potro looked to the stands himself. Unable to find a celebrity, however, he found himself a ringer in a nine-year old.
At first, Stiller plays the villian, telling young Rebecca Suarez that she’s going down. However, the young lady had the first and last laugh, playing like a superstar with all the eyes on her.
Seriously, get this girl into a training program or something.
