Five-time champion Rafael Nadal will face Argentina's Pedro Cachin in the third round of the 2024 Madrid Open. The match is scheduled for Monday, April 29, 2024. Here's our Rafael Nadal vs Pedro Cachin prediction.

Rafael Nadal vs Pedro Cachin Preview

It was like watching the old Rafael Nadal in his fantastic straight-sets win over Alex de Minaur in the second round. In a rematch from Barcelona just a week ago, Nadal produced a much better showing that will surely put everyone in the draw at the Madrid Open on notice. The Spaniard significantly improved on some key metrics during the match, which will give him fresh impetus to challenge at Roland Garros potentially. Nadal recorded improved serve speeds in comparison to Barcelona, where he lost to the same opponent and won a healthy 74% and 63% first and second serve points, suggesting his serving frailties might be long gone.

Pedro Cachin, for his part, arrived in Madrid after 11 consecutive defeats. That dreadful run of form saw him stand on the cusp of a Top 100 exit. But the man from Bell Ville, Argentina, has got his campaign back on track with two morale-boosting wins over Sebastian Ofner and then World No. 21 Frances Tiafoe to reach the third round. Those two victories couldn't have been timely, especially as he is set to combat the greatest clay-court player of all time.

Rafael Nadal vs Pedro Cachin Head-To-Head

Rafael Nadal and Pedro Cachin have not played each other at any level before this. So, this third-round match at the Madrid Open will be their first head-to-head meeting.

Rafael Nadal vs Pedro Cachin Prediction

While Nadal's fans remain upbeat about his prospects not just at this tournament but for the remainder of the aly swing, the man himself has downplayed expectations when quizzed about whether the old Nadal was back. But we cannot ignore that Nadal's surge and pedigree on this surface is inevitable when he sets foot on it. Cachin's confidence has only been repaired slightly, and it is tough to see him upset the odds.
