Henman beats Nadal…...at keepy-uppy

Rafael Nadal may have 14 grand slam titles to Tim Henman’s none but when it comes to keepy-uppy he has had to concede defeat.

Nadal is currently competing in Wimbledon and while there was asked by the BBC to take part in their Copa-uppy challenge; to see how many times competitors can keep a tennis ball bouncing without dropping it.

The Spaniard managed a respectable 20 but that was no match for the former English No 1.

Henman is working at Wimbledon as a commentator for the BBC and showed off considerable skill as he blew all previous scores out of the water, recording a phenomenal 92 bounces, more than four times what Nadal managed.

Nadal beat Henman on the two occasions they met on the court but the Englishman definitely has the upper hand at keepy-uppy.

Current Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and footballer Clarence Seedorf had also attempted the challenge but neither was a match for Henman.
