Home favourite Rafael Nadal steps up his Madrid Open title quest with a Third Round clash against David Goffin on Thursday.
Third seed Nadal is vying for a sixth Madrid Open title and a first since 2017 as he looks to continue his prolific dominance on clay.
The 35-year-old has enjoyed a terrific start to the season with 21 wins from 22 matches, and three titles to his name, including the Australian Open.
His only defeat of the season so far came at the hands of Taylor Fritz in the final of Indian Wells, and he began his campaign on home soil in Madrid with a routine straight sets win over Miomir Kecmanović.
After missing the Monte-Carlo Masters and the Barcelona Open through injury, Nadal is looking to build up a head of steam ahead of the upcoming French Open, and a strong run here would prove ideal preparation.
Goffin, meanwhile, picked up his sixth career title at the Grand Prix Hassan II in Marrakech last month and came through the qualifiers to reach this event.
The 31-year-old Belgian is a three-time Grand Slam quarter-finalist and has two career wins over Nadal from their six previous meetings.
Goffin has seen off Aslan Karatsev and Botic van de Zandschulp so far this week without dropping a set and will look to serve up a tough test for the Spanish star.
Either Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie or Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz will await the winner in the Quarter-Finals.
Nadal v Goffin is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 3pm BST.
