Go for it all: Rafael Nadal to face local in US Open Round of 16

Raphael Nadal He looks back on the second week of the US Open with only one goal, to reach the last match of the tournament with the hope of being able to return to the top of the ATP rankings. He has just left Richard Gasquet on the road in exceptional fashion and now he will have another tough stop, where Arthur Ashe will be heartbroken not knowing who to root for.

‘Rafa’ had no mercy with the Frenchman to advance to the round of 16 of the tournament and will face Frances Tiafoe who was strong in the previous round, where he knocked out Diego Schwartzman in straight sets. In said meeting, the American relied on his people, who never stopped motivating him, but now with Raphael Nadal on the other side of the net, the story will be different. You will have to be smart when making decisions.

If Rafa manages to lift the trophy, he will be the new world No.1.

The Manacorí man and the local have already faced each other twice with wins for Europe, although three years have passed since those matches so far. Inside the court there will be two different tennis players compared to 2019, ‘La Fiera’ with 36 years old and the aspiration to get another GS, and on the other a much more mature Tiafoe, with a winning mentality and without the pressure of facing an idol.
