Sport: The Spaniard smoked with the set numbers 1-6, 3-6. Hurkacz is ranked number nine in the world and was a strong opponent for Nadal, who has struggled with injuries in the last two years.

– Nobody wants statistics like him on clay. He is bigger than the sport. He inspires so many. I’m very happy to get the experience of playing against him, Hurkacz said of Nadal after the victory.

After the competition in Rome, two ATP 250 tournaments in Geneva and Lyon are on the calendar before the Grand Slam tournament Roland-Garros awaits. Nadal has won a record 14 titles there.

Nadal is in his final season, but he has not decided exactly when he will retire.

Casper Ruud lost on Friday to Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic.
