Nadal suffers early exit at Barcelona Open!
Rafael Nadal’s preparations for the French Open suffered a setback after he was defeated by Fabio Fognini at the Barcelona Open.
The Italian, seeded 13th, won 6-4 7-6 (8-6) in the third round of the Barcelona Open. This is Nadal’s worst rsult in Barcelona since 2003, when he was just 16 years old.
Rafael Nadal, who has won the Barcelona Open eight times, has just only one title to his name since winning the French Open last year.
Despite this result the Spaniard is hoping to defend his title in Paris next month, but his erratic form continued on his favorite clay courts.
