Turns out, Tony was indeed Rafa, and Nadal was playing his part in a campaign for Pokerstars out of McCann Barcelona. The branded content film portrayed Nadal as a trainee trying to develop his bluffing skills in the "sport" of poker, all part of his sponsorship agreement with the online gaming site.
