Rafael Nadal returns with Madrid Open win – World number 4 Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal, who has 21 grand slam titles in his career, returned to the courts with a victory at the Madrid Open after a month-long injury.
In the season in which he had the best start of his career, his 20-game winning streak ended with his defeat in the final of the Indian Wells Masters Tennis Tournament, and he could not participate in the tournaments for more than a month due to the injury he suffered during the match. He faced off against Serbian tennis player Miomir Kecmanovic.
After winning the first set 6-1 comfortably, the Spanish tennis player won 7-6 in the second set, which was interrupted due to rain, and returned to the courts with a victory after injury.
The Madrid Open, the 1000 clay-court tournament of the Professional Tennis Association (ATP), was attended by Nadal, who returned with a trophy from the Australian Open, the first grand slam of the season, as well as the Melbourne Summer Set and the Mexican Open, will be held between 1-8 May.
