Rafa and Horacio will be facing each other for the third time. The head-to-head series is tied 1-1, but they have not faced each other since 2013, when the 32-year-old Argentine, currently No. 84 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, beat our champ in the final of Vina del Mar.


It’s another opportunity for me to fight, to be in the final day and enjoy this tournament. I’ll try to get ready for tomorrow now.

  1. GOOD LUCK RAFA. You will face Thiem in the final. For sure, will get your Barcelona Décima.


  2. Good luck Rafa on reaching the finals. You can do it champ. VAMOOS!! 🎾💪🏼❤️

  3. GREAT TENNIS RAFA vs Zeballos. Just one more match after this one until you win your 10th Barcelona title.

    The original Olympians are with you, as am I.


  4. Zeballos plays mainly on the challenger circuit; clay being his favorite surface. In 2013, he beat Rafa in the Viña del Mar final. He played a losing 2017 AO five hour and fifteen minute match against Ivo Karlovic.

    Zeballos may have the stamina to keep up with Rafa, but does he have the shots to win the match.


    • In 2013 Rafa just came back to play after to be 7 months out of the court taking care of his knee and that was his first or second tournament. Today is a very diferent situation and if he plays well I don’t have any doubts we will,see him playing the final against whoever

      • Thanks for filling in the gap.

        Yes, it was Rafa’s first tournament after his many months out due to injury. And it is the only title Zeballos has won.

        As Ricky [Grandstand] said, “This is obviously a much different Nadal, ….so a swift end to his [Zeballos’] stellar week will likely be in store.”

        RAFA ROCKS

    • I think so long as Rafa does not suffer an injury during his match with Zebellos he should be fine. His level of play at the moment is not only very high but he is playing with confidence and as we all know, a confident Rafa is very hard to overcome.
      Athough he faltered for the first few games against Chung he kept his calm and found a way to get back on track for a straight sets win. But congratulations to Chung who showed he has what it takes to be a top player one day.
