Rafa Nadal resumes his quest for Grand Slam glory at the 2022 US Open – here are full details of his next match.

Nadal etched his name into the tennis record books by securing a 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open at the beginning of the year to overtake rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic at the top of the all-time list.

The 36-year-old, who had been out of action since ending his season early last August due to a foot injury, rolled back the years to pull off a stunning success Down Under.

Following wins over Karen Khachanov, Denis Shapovalov, and Matteo Berrettini, Nadal incredibly battled back from two sets down to defeat Daniil Medvedev in a pulsating five-set final.

In doing so, the Spaniard also became only the second man in the Open Era, after Djokovic, to complete the double career Grand Slam.

He followed that up by winning the Mexican Open and reaching the final at Indian Wells – where he was denied by Taylor Fritz.

Having withdrawn from the next three tournaments, Nadal suffered a Madrid Open Quarter-Final defeat to emerging compatriot Carlos Alcaraz – who went on to lift the title on home soil.

A Third Round loss followed at the Italian Open, but Nadal returned to Roland Garros in fine fettle and extended his incredible dominance of the clay court major – defeating Casper Ruud in the final to make it 22 Grand Slams and become the oldest singles champion in the history of the event.

Nadal has now claimed a staggering 14 French Open titles, with his first coming back in 2005, and has won five of the last six stagings.

However, his hopes of a first seasonal Grand Slam ended in agonising fashion at Wimbledon as he was forced to withdraw prior to his Semi-Final clash with Nick Kyrgios due to an abdominal muscle tear.

Following a month of recuperation, Rafa made his return on hard court at the Cincinnati Masters, losing out to Croatia’s Borna Ćorić in the Second Round.

He now heads to Flushing Meadows for the final Grand Slam of the year – the US Open – an event he has won on four occasions, most recently in 2019.

The number two seed came from a set down to dispatch young Australian debutant Rinky Hijikata 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 in Round One before repeating that pattern against Fabio Fognini, then swept aside Richard Gasquet in straight sets.

French ace Frances Tiafoe will provide Nadal’s next test in the Fourth Round. The match is scheduled for Monday September 5 from 6.30pm BST, with either Cameron Norrie or Andrey Rublev awaiting the winner in the Quarter-Finals.
