It is the turn of the round of 16 at the Foro Italico to Rafael Nadal, in an event in which he has already won ten times and where, in fact, he arrives as the defending champion and ready to revalidate his crown. The Majorcan comes in full recovery after his weeks of inactivity due to the rib injury, and having only played one tournament in Madrid, where he lost in the quarterfinals against Alcaraz. His footing and his confidence will determine what his journey in Rome will be like. His round of 16 rival is Denis Shapovalov, who comes from beating Lorenzo Sonego and Nikoloz Basilashvili in the previous rounds. The Canadian has not shown the best version of himself since those quarters in Australia that he let escape against Nadal, but he will try to make up for it and give the bell in Italy. Last year, in the round of 16, he had match points to beat Rafa.
Rafa Nadal, for his part, beat John Isner in his debut, in the most comfortable victory of his career against the American giant. Of rhythm, yes, Shapovalov will arrive better. The Canadian has only beaten Rafa in his first match, at Canada 2017.
