Raul Zurutuza, the Director of the Telcel Mexican Open presented by HSBC, says that Spaniard Rafael Nadal keeps surprising him and believes the World No. 2 will eventually pass Roger Federer in the tally for most Grand Slam titles.

Speaking to the tournament website, Zurutuza comments, “The guy just keeps surprising me. Many believed that the way he plays would soon end his career, but his dedication in each game, the love for tennis and respect for the sport itself, have really helped him.

Not even the injuries have been able to knock him down. And as much as he loves to compete, the simplicity of accepting what he can’t control has really helped him keep playing.” Nadal, who is the top seed in the tournament, currently has 19 Grand Slams while Federer has 20.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Federer has undergone knee surgery and will miss the clay court season and only be back for the grass court season. “I don’t see how he can’t reach 20 or even 21 or 22.

I think Rafa is still the favorite for the French until he retires or until he can’t walk There are many players stomping and threatening Rafa’s dominance in clay, like Dominic Thiem, but only Nadal will decide when he will let someone else win in his territory.”

Nadal was beaten in the round of 16 at the tournament last year by Australian Nick Kyrgios, who also is back for the tournament his year.

In the next round, the young Australian Alex De Minaur or Miomir Kecmanovic will be playing Rafa. In the quarterfinals, he might collide with the Serbian Dusan Lajovic or the big-serving American Reilly Opelka. Further, into the event, he might face the three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka or the former World Number three Grigor Dimitrov in the semifinals.

In the finals, World Number two Nadal might take on the reigning Australian Open semifinalist Alexander Zverev. Or if the defending champion Nick Kyrgios continues to be impressive in Acapulco, Nadal might face him in the finals.

Last year, Kyrgios stopped Nadal in the second round of the tournament. The duo played one of the uncanniest matches of tennis with Kyrgios outplaying the Spaniard in the tiebreaks and converting no break points.

Last week, Kyrgios withdrew from the tournament in Delray Beach due to a wrist injury.

The second seed, Alexander Zverev will open against the Australian Jordan Thompson. He is projected to face Mackenzie McDonald in the second round. In the quarters, the defending finalist Sascha might face John Isner or his brother Mischa Zverev.

Isner was a round-one upset at the New York Open, after he resumed his tennis following the Australian major.

The German ace’s potential semifinal opponents are Kyrgios and Felix Auger-Aliassime. The young Canadian has reached two consecutive finals in Rotterdam and Marseille this month.

Then in the championship match, the Mexican Open 2020 draw projects Nadal or Wawrinka as Sascha’s opponent.

In Dubai, the other set of ATP men will be putting up the show in parallel. In that part of the world, Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas might set up the battle for the title.
