The Mutua Madrid Open draw is out. Defending champion Rafael Nadal, who has a bye in the first round, will play in the second round against the winner of Steve Johnson and a qualifier.
On his way to his fifth title in Madrid, our champ could then play Kevin Anderson, Stan Wawrinka or Grigor Dimitrov, Roger Federer and finally Kei Nishikori, David Ferrer or Andy Murray.
If the men play to seed the quarter-final line up will be:
- Roger Federer vs. Tomas Berdych
- Rafael Nadal vs. Stan Wawrinka
- Kei Nishikori vs. David Ferrer
- Andy Murray vs. Milos Raonic
All the best of luck in the world to our champ! Vamos Rafa!
If Rafa is using his old racket, then I think there’s no reason to believe he couldn’t win this Madrid title. After a week’s rest and practice, he should be doing better than at Barcelona. I do hope to see a more aggressive Rafa at Madrid, the one who played the earlier rounds at Madrid last year, not the defensive Rafa in the Madrid final vs Kei last year.
Yeah!!!!! No Joke-a-dick
Looking forward to Rafa biting the trophy!!! Vamos Rafa!!!
