At Chile, Nadal will face World No.86 Alejandro Tabilo in the singles. The Spaniard will once again be playing against Casper Ruud in the other four cities on the tour.

Rafael Nadal had a great start to the year as he won the Australian Open and French Open to clinch a record 23 Grand Slam titles. However he didn’t enjoy a last few months as he suffered a abdominal injury that made him withdraw before his semifinal contest at Wimbledon. He then returned for the US Open but suffered a fourth round exit in the year-ending Grand Slam. He was the top seed at the ATP Finals but bowed out from the group stages of the tournament.

Meanwhile, Ruud has enjoyed his best season on the ATP Tour in his career. He finished as runner-up at the French Open after losing the final against Rafael Nadal. He also reached the final at the US Open and yet again secured the runner-up spot after losing to Carlos Alcaraz. His runner-up finish made him reach career-best World No.2 spot. At the season-ending ATP Finals, he made it to the final and finished as runner-up after losing the final against Novak Djokovic.
