Top-seeded Rafael Nadal will continue his Melbourne Summer Set campaign on Friday when he faces Tallon Griekspoor. It will be the first meeting between the two.
Date: January 7, 2022
Match time: Rafa is third match on Rod Laver. Not before 3.30 PM AEDT local time / 11.30 PM EST – New York, Montreal / 4.30 AM GMT – United Kingdom / 5.30 AM CET – Spain, France, Germany, Italy. To convert to your local time, use this website.
Tallon is currently on a 28-match winning streak and has plenty of momentum coming into the match. He won five Challenger titles back-to-back at the end of last year, but only four of his 28 recent wins have come against opponents in the top 100 and none against top 50 players.
Rafa showed some good tennis in his first match back, and we are sure he will only improve going forwards as he gets a feel for the court.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
