The world's best player on clay is now the best player on ... an opera stage?

Rafael Nadal, along with David Ferrer, got a chance to hit the ball around at Barcelona's Liceu Opera House in a promotion for this week's Barcelona Open.

The top two seeded players in the event got to play a round of mini tennis inside the theater, while also posing for photos. Thanks to Rafael Nadal Fans, you can check out more photos.

Nadal, who will be seeking his ninth Barcelona Open title, has had a pretty impressive season so far, winning the Qatar Open and Rio Open, while losing in the finals of the Australian Open and Sony Open.
