Rafael Nadal is back in the game with a win over America’s Denis Kudla with a score of 6-3, 6-2 at the Acapulco in the opening match. The Spaniard hit 26 winners to 6 unforced errors also including 16 winners to 2 unforced errors off his forehand.
This was Nadal’s first match since his historical triumph at the Australian Open 2022 defeating World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev and became the man with the most Grand Slams in the men’s singles history surpassing Swiss legend Roger Federer and Serbian Novak Djokovic who currently tie with 20 Grand Slams.
The King of Clay kick-started his tennis season with an ATP Cup summer set title in Melbourne and since then, he has been undefeated.
World No. 5 Nadal in a post-match on-court interview said that he started playing well and continued with a solid performance. The Spanish professional believes that he can do a few of the things better but he won’t complain about it as his overall performance was “very well” and it has been a very “positive” match of him.
