Rafael Nadal vs John Isner Preview

Rafael Nadal will face John Isner in the round of 32 at the Italian Open 2024 on Wednesday, May 11th.

Rafael Nadal’s performances so far ahead of Italian Open 2024

Earlier this year, Rafael Nadal won his 21st Grand Slam title and wrote his name into the history books. But the Spaniard has not enjoyed the best of times ever since. Nadal was out for a while due to a rib injury and played his first tournament on clay at the Madrid Open. There, he was beaten by Carlos Alcaraz in the quarterfinals. Nadal will be hoping to get back to his best ahead of the French Open and this tournament will be a great stepping stone for him.
