Rafael Nadal and Fernando Verdasco are going to clash in the 2nd round in Paris.

Nadal

Rafa is trying to defend his world no.1 rank against the assault of Novak Djokovic. In order to do that, the Spaniard needs to have the same performance of the Serb in Paris. This means that since Djokovic is already in the 3rd round, Nadal needs to win hisĀ opening match to keep his leadership in the rankings. This is also the first time that the Spaniard plays after withdrew in the semifinal of the US Open.

Verdasco

Ranked no.27, Fernando had a couple of nice runs in the last 2 months after he reached the semifinals in both Shenzhen and Vienna. The Spaniard got to the 2nd round in Bercy after he dispatched the home favorite Jeremy Chardy 6-4 6-4.

For Tennis Tonic, I mostly take care of the sections that we call Quick Buzz and Videos that is about brief stories, videos or posts about the top Tennis Players. My favorite players are Federer and Nadal even if I am aware that they are at the end of their career. Following the like of Shapovalov, Tsitsipas, and Coric and on the WTA side I am intrigued by Naomi Osaka, Dayana Yastremska, Amanda Anisimova, and Olga Danilovic. I am always hopeful that Genie Bouchard will find her way back.
