Defending champion Daniil Medvedev became the latest top player to crash out of the Italian Open as he lost to American Tommy Paul on Tuesday. The 14th-seeded Paul dominated to triumph 6-1, 6-4.

Top-seeded Sinner, Nadal, Swiatek all advance at Madrid Open

Rafael Nadal tore his headband off, thrust his arms in the air, and soaked up the cheers. It was only a second-round victory, but coming from where Nadal had been just a few weeks ago when he couldn’t even get on the court, he could have been savoring a trophy. He had just defeated 11th-ranked Alex de Minaur 7-6 (6), 6-3 at the Madrid Open on Saturday, avenging a straight-set loss to the Australian less than two weeks ago. Nadal is no longer aiming to add to his 92 titles after being decimated by injuries in recent years. The 37-year-old just wants to […]

Rafael Nadal cruises to straight-sets win over American teen

Rafael Nadal couldn’t learn much from his comfortable consecutive-sets victory over American teenager Darwin Blanch in the first round of the Madrid Open.

Nadal never faced a break point and was in control from the start versus […]
