Rafael Nadal downed Donald Young in straight sets to advance at Wimbledon Wednesday, but that wasn’t the big story. That came in the autograph line after the match, as well as in the post-match press conference.

As Nadal was exiting the court, he began signing autographs for some of the fans, one of whom gave him a prosthetic leg. In the press conference afterwards, Nadal was asked about it. While smiling, he noted that the prosthetic leg was “probably not” the weirdest thing he’s ever signed.



That raises two more questions.

One, what is the weirdest thing that he’s ever signed?

Two, do we really want to know the answer?

This may be something better left to the imagination. At the very least, if you’re going to start guessing, maybe don’t do it around children. But if Tom Brady gets anything thrown at him with Rafael Nadal’s signature on it, we may have a pretty good clue.
