Rafael Nadal to defend Argentina Open title

Rafael Nadal is set to defend his Argentina Open title this week.

The 29-year-old initially had no intention to compete at the event but his first-round exit from Australian Open forced him to reconsider his plans.

“I asked for this wild card after the bad result in Melbourne and I hope that Buenos Aires will once again be the start of a good run for me. I will try my best to make sure it is,” said the 14-time Grand Slam winner.

He will play in Buenos Aires either tomorrow or Thursday.
