After debuting on a good note against Jordan Thompson, Rafael Nadal will play his second round at Roland Garros in the night session, brighter and with another touch under the spotlight, although it will also take getting used to.
The Balearic faces the local tennis player Corentin Moutet, 139 in the world, who beat Stan Wawrinka, champion in Paris in 2015, in the previous one. The clash between Nadal and Moutet is unprecedented, despite the years that the Balearic has already been on the circuit . At 23 years old, the Frenchman belongs to the new breed of tennis players who have grown up watching the Balearic win matches in Paris, but he does not want that to cloud his opportunity to face him.
The meeting between Nadal and Moutet will be played on Wednesday, May 25, in the Philippe Chatrier night session, not before 8:45 p.m.
It is broadcast live and exclusively by Eurosport and you can also follow it point by point on ABC.es
