The 2022 Madrid Open live streams are nearly underway, as qualifier action is currently taking place on the women's side of the tournament. The big news, though, is all about one of the biggest threats to Novak Djokovic, the World's No. 1 men's singles player (in the ATP rankings).
Yes, as you might have guessed from the above image, Rafa is back. After sitting at home for six weeks with a fractured rib, Rafael Nadal is not missing his chance to play for his home country.
In a tweet translated by Google, Nadal said "Despite arriving just before preparation and being difficult, I really want to play and play at home since the opportunities are few. To try to do it in the best possible way [flexing arm emoji] See you in Madrid [winking emoji]."
Nadal's confirmation means we could see a duel between he and Djokovic, if the bracket gods see it fit to happen. Djokovic just lost in the Serbia Open finals to Andrey Rublev, 6-2, 6-7 (4/7), 6-0.
Over on the women's side of the tournament, the big news is that Emma Raducanu (who is playing in the tournament) is parting ways with coach Torben Beltz. The two worked together for five months.
