Although there are a few young guns who stand a great chance to win the Madrid Open this year, ardent tennis fans want to see veterans Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal go head to head once again on a clay court. The last time these two faced each other was at the 2021 French Open where Djokovic got the better of the Spaniard.

But with Nadal’s injury woes and Djokovic out of form, fans have been curious to know whether the two tennis legends will take part at the Madrid Open. The two haven’t played each other this year but there is potential that the two could meet at the opposite ends of the court at the Spanish capital.

On the other hand, Novak Djokovic has played only three tournaments this year and the Serb is yet to win a title in 2024. Djokovic recently suffered defeat at the Serbia Open final against Andrey Rublev but will be playing at the Madrid Open as well.
