Rafa will defend his title in Buenos Aires

Rafa will defend his title in Buenos Aires

Rafael Nadal has had his first hit out ahead of his Argentina Open title defence, practising with compatriot David Ferrer in Buenos Aires on Monday.

It was the first look at Nadal in action since his first-round exit to another of his countrymen, Fernando Verdasco, at this year’s Australian Open. The Spaniard downed his good friend Juan Monaco to claim last year’s title in the Argentine capital and the pair could be set for a rematch in the second round provided Tandil native Monaco wins his first match.

Defending champion Andy Murray is also confirmed for the traditional warm-up event which starts on June 13.

Fernando Verdasco def Rafael Nadal 7-6(6) 4-6 3-6 7-6(4) 6-2

Q. You started the fifth set with a break. What do you think happened after that?
RAFAEL NADAL: The match is five sets. There is not only last set. He was playing amazing in the last set. If you decide everything in one set, the opponent is ready to hit all the balls at hundred percent, then you are in trouble.

He had a lot of success hitting all the balls full power in the fifth. I have to congratulate him.

But I am not happy about the way that I played the first. In the fourth I was not very bad, but he played better than me, too. I had my chances in the fourth, too, with that Love-30 that he played well. That's it.

He played better than me. He played more aggressive than me. He taked more risks than me, and he won. Probably he deserved.
