Nadal will participate in the Masters 1000 in Madrid

Spanish tennis player Rafa Nadal confirmed via twitter that he will participate in the Madrid Masters 1000, which will be held from September 12 to 20, after its director, Feliciano López, announced the presence of the world’s number two.

«I have spoken with my friend Rafael Nadal and he has confirmed his participation in Madrid next September! We wait for you as always with open arms at the Caja Mágica! “, Feliciano López wrote on his Twitter account.

López put his message on the photo of Nadal biting the trophy of the Madrid tournament, which he has won five times (2005, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2017).

This is Feli. See you in September in Madrid. Meanwhile, everything goes well! “Nadal replied in the same social network, taking up the message from Feliciano López.

Nadal thus confirms his attendance at the Madrid tournament, which will take place just after the United States Open (August 31 to September 13) and shortly before Roland Garros, which will be played from September 27 to October 11.

The Madrid tournament was to be held from May 1 to 10, but the coronavirus epidemic forced its suspension, being then replaced by an online competition, in which the world’s first rackets participated.

The British Andy Murray won this virtual tournament in the men’s competition, while in the women’s competition the winner was the Dutch Kiki Bertens.
