Nadal Visits Museo Del Prado For Madrid Opening Ceremony
Second seed aiming to lift sixth title in Spanish capital
The five-time champion was joined by fellow Spanish No. 1 Garbine Muguruza and Tournament Director Feliciano Lopez for a special night at the museum, which celebrates its bicentenary this year. Accompanied by Miguel Falomir Faus, director of the Museo del Prado, Nadal enjoyed a guided tour of one of the world’s most visited collections of art and posed for photos with Spanish artist Diego Velázquez’s best-known masterpieces.
Nadal will open his Mutua Madrid Open campaign against one of two #NextGenATP Canadians: Denis Shapovalov or Felix Auger-Aliassime. The Manacor native shares the bottom half of the draw with defending champion Alexander Zverev, with World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and three-time winner Roger Federer occupying the top half.
Nadal owns a 49-11 record at the ATP Masters 1000 event. The 32-year-old has reached the final in Madrid on eight occasions (5-3), with his most recent final appearance coming in 2017 when he defeated Dominic Thiem to lift a record fifth title at the Caja Magica.
