On Monday, Rafael Nadal will begin his bid for a third US Open title with a first round match against Borna Coric, who is currently ranked No. 35 in the world.
Date: August 31, 2015
Time: Approximately 8.30 pm EDT – New York, Montreal / September 1, – 1.30 am BST – United Kingdom / September 1 – 2.30 am CEST – Spain, France, Germany, Italy / September 1 – 10.30 am AEST – Melbourne. To convert to your local time, use this website.
Rafa and Borna will meet for the second time on the tour. The 18-year-old Croat defeated our champ at Basel in October in what proved to be Rafa’s last match of 2014 before he shut down his season to have his appendix removed.
Rafael Nadal: “Borna is a tough player. He’s a good competitor. He’s a strong player with a good serve and good backhand. I don’t remember very well that match in Basel but I think I played pretty bad and he played pretty well. Monday, I hope it will be a different story.”
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
