VIDEO: Rafael Nadal with a Houdini moment at Indian Wells
As we count the last days before the Indian Wells Masters returns on Thursday we will take a look at some truly magical moments from one of the premier Master events of the year. It's been two years since the courts have seen any top action and fans can't wait to see the best compete.
The reason is simple, the crowd has been spoiled with some of the best tennis we saw in the past several years and one such moment was delivered by 3x champion Rafael Nadal. In a match against Ivo Karlovic who is actually playing in the qualifiers for the 2021 edition despite seemingly retiring at the US Open, Nadal created a magical moment that many won't forget easily.

Karlovic was playing an excellent event and after crushing a forehand he arrived at the net to end the point. He played a fairly good volley that was running away from the court but outrunning Nadal on a tennis court is seemingly impossible so we got some Houdini magic from the Spaniard. Check it out below.
