Rafael Nadal v Martin Klizan Live
Third seeded Rafael Nadal will be up against Martin Klizan in his second round match at the French Open 2013.
Nadal is one of those few who’s not yet played his second round match in the men’s section of the draw because of inclement weather pushing the matches a little forward.
He did not have the kind of start he would have liked to the competition when he was stretched to four sets in his very first round match against Daniel Brands. He lost his first set and when the second set was stretched to a tie-breaker, Nadal would had his heart in his mouth.
The Spaniard world number four came back strongly to win the match in four sets.
Klizan won his opener against Michael Russell after his American opponent retired from the match at the end of the third set. The Slovakian was leading by two sets to one when Russell took the decision to throw in the towel.
Nadal and Klizan have never played each other before this one and it does look like the Spaniard will run away to an easy victory in this one. The winner of this match will take on Italy’s 27th seeded Fabio Fognini in their third round match.
