Rafael Nadal wrote the history of the Mutua Madrid Open, winning five titles, one of which was on hard-courts (in 2005, before the 2009 reform), and four on clay-courts. Rafa has played incredible hits through these years, whenever he entered the tournament.
Here are the best five shots that the Spaniard hit in Madrid. This is one of the memories of past days as the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the season's suspension over time. The tournament will not be relocated this season, but it will be played directly in 2021, not following the line of other events such as the French Major (French Open) that have been rescheduled for the second half of 2020, after the US Open.
