22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal will prepare for Wimbledon by playing two matches in the Giorgio Armani Tennis Classic exhibition event at the Hurlingham Club this week.
Rafa’s first match will be on Wednesday afternoon against Stan Wawrinka. His second match will be on Friday against Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Both matches are scheduled to begin at 2:30 local time / 9:30 AM EDT – New York, Montreal / 2:30 PM BST – United Kingdom / 3:30 PM CEST – Spain, France, Germany, Italy / 11:30 PM AEST – Melbourne.
Rafa has participated at Hurlingham on multiple occasions in the past. He wants to get a couple of matches under his belt because he hasn’t played a tour-level grass court event in his build-up to this year’s Wimbledon, and will be back in action for the first time since Roland Garros.
Rafa will be ready and i am hoping he will adopt his clay court game to the grass and shorten the points playing lots of serve and volley .
🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 HAI STAN VICTORIE
Thank you Rafa Nadal fans for keeping us all together…. Vamos Rafa for Wimbledon #3

I am excited to see you back on the court good luck
All the best in this tuneup, Rafa. Hope the foot responds well👏👍💪🤛🍀🎾❤️
I am excited and nervous on this match . I think Rafa should play aggressively but keep something in reserve as it’s a tuneup and not a significant meaningful match .
Will either be televised?
Usually you can watch it via live stream on Facebook page Giorgio Armani Tennis Classic.
Just in time for a tune-up match for rafa…
