Rafael Nadal and Fernando Verdasco

Tennis: World number two Rafael Nadal is practicing with his compatriot and former world number 7 Fernando Verdasco to get ready for the China Open in Beijing which will start from Monday.

Nadal shared a picture on his facebook page in which he could be seen sitting with Verdasco after there practice session. They looked in a very good mood, with Verdasco placing his arm around Nadal’s neck.

The 13-time Grand Slam winner also wrote this caption under the picture, “With Fernando Verdasco! After practice with him at Beijing.”

Nadal and Verdasco are not just countrymen but very good friends too. They have also won Davis Cup for their country together. However, Nadal obviously have been more successful player on the Tour. They have played 14 matches against each other and Verdasco has won just the last one. Their Australian Open semi-final 2009 was one of the best of tournament’s history.

They are in different halves of the draw at the China Open which means they can only meet in the final and for that Verdasco will have to upset reigning world number one Novak Djokovic in the second round. If Nadal reaches the final of this ATP World Tour 500 hard court event he will snatch number one ranking from the Serbian.
