Rafael Nadal Form


Rafael Nadal improved his French Open record to 101-2 with a 6-3, 6-2, 7-6(3) victory over Alexei Popyrin in the first round.

Popyrin actually broke Nadal and served for the third set, but the Australian is an extremely talented player with raw power to burn – it was not indicative of any poor play on Nadal’s part.

Nadal has now won 13 of his last 14 matches and looked delighted to be back at Roland Garros in its usual springtime spot. 

His head-to-head against Gasquet reflects what a good match-up this is for him as he can pummel Gasquet’s single-handed backhand, push the Frenchman back behind the baseline and attack the net at will.
