Rafael Nadal continues his bid for a third Mexican Open title when he takes on Grigor Dimitrov in the semi-finals. Nadal has reached the last four without dropping a set and looked imperious at times.
But Dimitrov impressed on Thursday when he outclassed past Stan Wawrinka and Nadal says he is bracing himself for a tough test.
“[Dimitrov] finished last year much better than how he had played the rest of that year,” Nadal said.
“He started to play some good tennis and is showing it here, winning some very good matches.
“I’m going to need my best and I hope I’m ready to make it happen.”
What time does Rafael Nadal vs Grigor Dimitrov start?
Rafael Nadal’s clash with Grigor Dimitrov will get underway following the conclusion of the WTA Tour match between Renata Zarazua and Leylah Fernandez.
It is expected that Nadal and Dimitrov will be on court at around 4am (GMT).
