One of the most anticipated matches of the Madrid Open takes place in Third Round featuring a Spaniard and an Australian. It’s Rafael Nadal Vs Nick Kyrgios in what promises to be a cracker of a match.
Four-time champion Rafael Nadal comes into this match with loads of confidence behind his back. The Spaniard won his tenth Monte Carlo and Barcelona Open title and also dismantled Italian Fabio Fognini to move into Round 3 in Madrid.
Ranked No.5 on the ATP Charts, Nadal has always been a favourite on clay and would be hoping to further strengthen his form going into Roland Garros.
On the other hand, Nick Kyrgios comes into this match following an impressive straight sets victory over American Ryan Harrison. An impressive 17-4 win-loss record speaks about the form he has been in and has already defeated Novak Djokovic twice in equal weeks.
Ranked at No.20 in the World, Kyrgios has been ranked as high as No.13 in the World and would be looking to break into the Top-10 by the end of the season.
The two have played twice before with the two splitting their head-to-head matches. Their last meeting took place in Rome last year with Nadal winning in three sets.
