Rafael Nadal has been knocked out of the China Open in Beijing in the QF by qualifier Martin Klizan. In a match that lasted two hours and 37 minutes, Rafa lost 7-6(7), 4-6, 3-6. Our champ struggled with Klizan’s power game and his own consistency in just his third match back following a two-month layoff due to a right wrist injury.
The next tournament for Rafa will be the Shanghai Rolex Masters which begins on October 6.
Win or lose, ALWAYS with Rafa!
