Tennis star Nadal in middle of soccer controversy in Madrid

Tennis star Nadal in middle of soccer controversy in Madrid”

"At night it was a little bit chilly, a little bit cold, and I just used it as a scarf".

Nadal was spotted sitting in the posh seats inside Ateltico's plush Wanda Metropolitano stadium as Diego Simeone's men reached the Europa League final, and he was brazenly sporting a red and white flag draped around his neck. "They totally support you and I'm very thankful for that", the Iberian nation's greatest-ever tennis star said.

Nadal said he favors after-game sanctions to try to make the referees' life easier. "Coming into the clay season having played only four matches is not the ideal preparation, but to be honest, I feel that I've been playing well".

Angelique Kerber is the number one seed, while Karolina Plizkova is the second seed and if all goes according to plan will meet Simone Halep, who is only third seed despite winning in 2016 and 2017.

Novak Djokovic, last year's semi-finalist in Madrid, will be trying to get his season going after nursing a lingering right elbow injury. The Spaniard usually participates in three ATP 1000 (Monte Carlo, Madrid, Rome), one ATP 500 (Barcelona) and one major (Roland Garros) events this time of the year, and shockingly he hasn't been able to win all of these in a single season. He is looking delighted with the Atleti win.

"A few months ago Rafa was injured but he was feeling very well', he told Marca". The 12th-ranked Serb hasn't made it past the last 16 in five tournaments this year. He was a finalist in 2014, losing to Rafael Nadal. She has been dealing with a left forearm injury. "That will certainly help me moving forward".

Halep will face one of two Belgians in the second round, either Alison van Uytvanck or Elise Mertens, before a possible third round against American No. 13 seed Madison Keys.

In a first-round match between Frenchmen, Benoit Paire hit 39 winners to defeat 18th-ranked Lucas Pouille 6-2, 6-3, advancing to face 19-year-old Denis Shapovalov of Canada, who got past Tennys Sandgren of the USA 6-1, 6-4.

Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki edged past Ashleigh Barty 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.
