Rafael Nadal could meet Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter final and Dominic Thiem in the semifinal in Barcelona

Published

on

Rafael Nadal is targeting a record 12th title at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, which will be played on the clay court of the Real Club Tenis Barcelona.

 

Nadal has lifted the Barcelona title eleven times on the tennis court which bears his name. The Spanish legend is aiming at writing history in Barcelona. If he wins this tournament for the 12th time, he would equal Martina Navratilova, who won the Chicago tournament twelve times setting an absolute record of victories of a male or female player in the same tournament. Nadal will be looking to avenge his semifinal defeat against Fabio Fognini in Monte-Carlo.

Nadal won the past two editions winning the past two finals against Dominic Thiem in 2017 and Stefanos Tsitsipas in 2018. Nadal, who opens this year’s tournament against either Marius Copil or Leonardo Mayer, will face a very tough path to the final, as he could meet David Ferrer in the second round, Lucas Pouille in the third round, Tsitsipas in the quarter final and 2019 Indian Wells champion Thiem in the semifinal. The Austrian player has been the only player, who was able to beat Nadal twice on clay in Rome 2017 and Madrid 2018.

David Ferrer, who who will play in Barcelona for the last time in his career, will meet Misha Zverev in the opening round. The winner of this match could meet Lucas Pouille in the second round. Ferrer, who ends his professional career at the Madrid Mutua Open, has played 14 times in Barcelona in his career and reached the final four times.

Thiem has been drawn in the same quarter of draw with Karen Khachanov, Frances Tiafoe and Pablo Carreno Busta.

Tsitsipas, who reached the semifinal at the Australian Open and the final in Dubai, leads an impressive list of Next Gen players, which also features this year’s Miami Open semifinalists Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger Aliassime, Australian Open quarter finalist Frances Tiafoe and Houston finalist Casper Ruud.

Last year’s Nitto ATP Finals Alexander Zverev, the latest addition to the star-studded field, could face this year’s Monte-Carlo semifinalist Danil Medvedev in the quarter final.

Nishikori, who won the Barcelona twice in a row in 2014 and 2015, will start his campaign against either Taylor Fritz or Reilly Opelka. The Japanese player could face a quarter final against Italian star Fabio Fognini, who became the first Italian player in history to win a Masters 1000 title in Monte-Carlo. Nishikori’s quarter also features Canadian Nex Gen stars Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger Aliassime, who is seeded for the first time in an ATP event for the first time in his career.

One of the most interesting matches in the bottom half of the draw is the Spanish clash between 2010 Barcelona champion Fernando Verdasco and his Spanish fellow veteran Feliciano Lopez. They tied 5-5 in their past 11 head-to-head matches and will meet for the 11th time in their career. Lopez will play in Barcelona for the 19th time in his career.
