2020 ATP Finals: Nadal to face Thiem after beating Rublev


Rafael Nadal will face Dominic Thiem in the next round of the 2020 ATP Finals after beating Russian star, Andrey Rublev on Sunday night.

The Spaniard cruised to a 6-3 6-4 against in-form Rublev in the O2 Arena despite a tough prediction before the match.

Rublev also failed to muster a single break point opportunity in the entire match as Nadal cruised to his first straight-sets victory in the Finals since 2016.

World number 2, Nadal will be looking forward to his first-ever win at the year-ending event after two failed attempts as a finalist.
