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.
