Rafael Nadal 4Crown3
David Goffin 60

In the third round of the ATP-1000 Championship in Madrid, David Goffin will face claycourt king Rafael Nadal this afternoon. A very difficult task, but it looks like Goffin is back in shape. Can he continue his progress against the Spaniard? Follow the result live here (around 4pm).

  1. Time 10:35. A real fan of Nadal. Rafael Nadal called on the organizers to move his match, which was scheduled for yesterday evening, to the afternoon. This way he can watch his favorite football team Real Madrid in the evening. Fortunately for Nadal, the organizers obeyed. The Spaniard will be relieved not to miss Real Madrid’s massive comeback in the Champions League. & nbsp; †
  2. 09:52. I am very happy with my first race. Because of my injury there was no preparation. Then you cannot expect great things. Rafael Nadal.
  3. Time 09:46. Nadal returns after a rib injury. For Nadal, this is his first claycourt tournament for 2022. A stress fracture in his ribs kept him sidelined for six weeks. In the second round – Nadal was free in the first – he really made a decent impression. Serbian Miomir Kekmanovic was easily removed (6-1, 7-6). †
  4. 9 a.m. 28. Guffin’s on the right track. After a major slump in shape in recent months, David Goffin has slipped to 60th in the world rankings. In Madrid, he had to struggle through the qualifications to be in the main draw. He faced the first two hurdles in the main tournament, against Karatsev and Van de Zandschulp, respectively. In each case, two groups were sufficient. Goffin showed in Madrid that he has not forgotten about tennis. It’s strange what he could do against Nadal. †
  5. 9 am 20.
