Rafa leads his FedEx ATP Head2Head series with Thiem 4-1, with all five of their matches coming on clay. Rafa dropped just five games in defeating Thiem two weeks ago in the Barcelona final.
Rafa, who moved to No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Race To London with a quarter-final win over David Goffin on Friday, will bid to tie Novak Djokovic atop the Masters 1000 titles leaderboard with his 30th crown. Should our champ lift the trophy in Madrid, he will overhaul Roger Federer in the rankings table and return to the world’s top four.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
