Nadal is expected to fly to Beijing for the China Open after the match. He’s also scheduled to play in Shanghai in two weeks.

Brando Says:

Thanks Giles and JD for the footage: it’s much appreciated.

Great to see Rafa on the court as he was much missed by millions around the world!

Some fun exchanges there but I have to say that must be the smallest Tennis arena I have seen hosting some major names of the Sport.

Tennis must be a underplayed/underfunded Sport in Kazakhistan, so Rafa and Jo going there should be a welcome boost for the Kazakhistan Tennis Federation and also a nice chance for the folks from there to see some elite players.

Good occasion all round!

Rafael Nadal defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in three sets, 6-7, 6-3, 6-4 in exho. There was lot of during the match.

I would love to watch Rafa in a small arena…..the venue would be more up close and personal…..I do believe he is sporting a new do……and the shirt was very much sleeved…..the sleeveless one……where is it??

Glad you’re back and tennis will be more exciting for me, once again!

Hippy Chick Says:
