Nadal now awaits the winner of the Roger Federer vs. Nick Kyrios semi-final, which promises to be a cracker of a contest. Will it be the 25th chapter of the Fedal rivalry, or a chance for the Spaniard to power to a positive head-to-head against Kyrgios?
Rafael Nadal has made an inspired comeback this season. He now has a dominant head-to-head of 8-3 against Fabio Fognini, who has troubled the Spaniard in the past. The Italian was clearly not at his best and made 35 unforced errors in the match. Rafael Nadal will face either Roger Federer or Nick Kyrgios in the final.
