Players’ Cut: Nightly specials dedicated to Rafael Nadal


The Nadal-themed week forms part of Players’ Cut, a new series which sees Eurosport celebrate the world’s best players for a week (Monday-Friday, 6-9pm BST).

Players’ Cut will feature six classic Nadal matches, starting with his maiden Grand Slam triumph back at Roland-Garros in 2005, and ending with an epic semi-final clash with Djokovic at the same tournament in 2013.

The weekly special also reprises three classic ‘Fedal’ matches, including their very first Grand Slam head-to-head back at the 2006 Roland-Garros final.

On top of the match replays, there will be exclusive new insight from a man who knows Rafa like the back of his hand; uncle and former coach Toni Nadal.

Toni catches up with Swedish legend Mats Wilander to reveal how the matches truly shaped the career of the 19-time Grand Slam champion.
