Daria Kasatkina poked fun at Rafael Nadal after the Spaniard tagged an incorrect account while looking back at his memories at the French Open. The 37-year-old has been Infosys' brand ambassador since 2023, and the tech giant compiled a video montage of his celebrations at the clay-court Major.

Nadal shared the video and captioned it by speaking about his memories at the Paris Major.

"It’s an amazing journey at @rolandgarros , a place where I have so many unforgettable memories.
"Each victory on these clay courts have been a proof to not only my love for the game, but also the fantastic support and love you have given me back. Thank you @Infosys, I am humbled by this special celebration and let’s hope the story keeps going," the Spaniard wrote on Instagram

The 37-year-old, though, tagged an incorrect Instagram account while attempting to mention Roland Garros. Instead, the account he tagged belonged to someone else named Roland. He later deleted the post and shared another video while tagging the correct account.

However, Kasatkina teased Nadal about his earlier post by sharing it along with the wrong account he tagged:

"Wondering how Roland feels about it."

While speaking to Russian outlet Telegraph, Kasatkina spoke about Nadal returning to tennis, saying that she's happy about him. The 27-year-old also said that while the 22-time Grand Slam champion needs a while after his comebacks.

"I'm already happy that he’ll come back. It's amazing how he proves it every time. Everyone writes him off, but every time he comes back like a phoenix and wins something. It's totally unbelievable," Kasatkina said.
"As for the prospects, I do not know, because he always needs some time after comebacks. But I've heard that Rafa is in very good shape right now — it's the most important thing. I think it's already an incredible victory for him that he'll сome back," she added.
