FRANCE (WTHR) — Losing is never easy and often times emotional.

But it wasn't so much getting eliminated for tennis player Nicolas Mahut, but what his son did that brought the crowd to tears.

The 37-year-old Frenchman had suggested this would be his last time playing singles at the tournament and when he lost, you could see it was painful.

No one felt it more than his son who rushed to give his dad a hug.

Even Mahut's opponent, Argentine player Leonardo Mayer, seemed to tear up.
