World No.2 Rafael Nadal will be back on the court at the 2020 Mexican Open in Acapulco. After having lost the top rank to reigning Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic, Nadal will be looking to get back to the top spot as the clay season approaches.
Nadal, who will enter the tournament as a top seed, will be up against his compatriot Pablo Andújar in the first-round match at Acapulco. It will be the fourth time that Nadal will be up against the 34-year old. With a 3-0 record in the previous three encounters, Nadal is likely to cruise past Andujar and move to the next round, where he could face Australia's Alex de Minaur.
Nadal was eliminated in the second round last year by eventual champion Nick Kyrgios. However, the Spaniard is in a much better form this year and would be aiming for nothing less than the trophy in his hands. The two-time champion in Acapulco will have his eyes on a tour-level title for the 17th consecutive year.
