Coupe Rogers R2: What time does Rafael Nadal play against Daniel Evans in Montreal?

Top seed and defending champion Rafael Nadal returns to action for the first time since Wimbledon as he takes on British qualifier Daniel Evans in the second round of the Coupe Rogers in Montreal.

The pair will meet for the very first time on Wednesday. They came close to facing each other in the Wimbledon fourth round last month, but Evans lost a five-set thriller to Joao Sousa.

Match time: noon local time / noon EDT – New York / 5 PM BST – United Kingdom / 6 PM CEST – Spain, France, Germany, Italy / Thursday, 2 AM AEST – Melbourne. To convert to your local time, use this website.

Dan Evans on playing Rafa:

It is going to be great. He is one of the best players to ever walk on the court and I’m going to enjoy every minute of it.

It is a shame it didn’t happen at Wimbledon but there’s no better place to do it than here.

Our champ has won the Canadian Masters on four occasions—a record for him at Masters 1000 hard-court events—twice in Toronto and twice in Montreal.

Rafa is the No. 1 seed for the third consecutive year and fifth time overall at the Rogers Cup.

He arrives with a 34-8 record in Canada and has reached at least the quarter-finals in seven of his past nine appearances at this event.

As the top seed in the draw, Rafa has a 15-2 record (2005 – Won, 2010 – SF, 2017 – 3R, 2018 – Won).

GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!

  3. I wanted a nice peaceful early round match and what do I get? Thunderstorms coming in waves? A close TB in the first set? Thankfully Rafa won the set and is up a break at 2-0 in the 2nd, but match suspended AGAIN!?!? I’m an old woman, my heart can’t take this stuff any more.

    Oh, yeah. Right. Vamos Rafa!

  4. Evans can be a very tough pesty opponent so its important to get on top early in the match . I hope Rafa is ready to get a high percentage of first serves in and attacks from the baseline and varies his return position to confuse Evans . Nadal in straight sets is my prediction . Good competitive match is likely .

  5. I’ve just had to rejig my plans for this evening – I was expecting a later match! I appreciate that Canadian TV’ll want the Shapovalov-Thiem match and the Felix A-A-Raonic match on on prime time, but I wasn’t expecting the early start 🙂 . Vamos!
