Nadal and Ruud played a match and after that, they teamed up with Argentine legends Sabatini and Dulko for a doubles match as well. Before the matches get underway Nadal expressed happiness to be able to share these moments with fans:

Navratilova and Evert hail Swiatek for speaking out against Polish tennis chief: "Well done for owning and using your platform"
Nadal won the singles match against Ruud in two sets and then won the doubles match 6-4 pairing Sabatini. He said:
“It’s a unique feeling to play here. Maybe I wasn’t here as many times as I would have liked. But it will always be in my heart that after 2005, when I played for the first time, my career started to go up. Having the opportunity to play with Casper, who is a great player, No 3 in the world, a good friend and an excellent person…, and also to play with Gisela and Gaby, two referents of Argentine and Latin tennis in the last 20 years, was a pleasure.”
