Nadal beats Ruud before teaming with Sabatini in mixed doubles

Rafael Nadal and Casper Ruud got their exhibition Tour underway in Buenos Aires with Nadal shining bright in both singles and doubles.

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:

“I am happy to have been able to share these moments with the Argentinean public, who are very passionate and knowledgeable about the sport. They have always treated me in the best possible way and I take with me an injection of positive energy."

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.”
