The King of Clay Rafael Nadal crashed out of the French Open 2024 after losing in straight sets to Alexander Zverev on May 27. Returning to action after a frustrating injury spell, Nadal failed to come back with a bang and lost 3-6, 6-7, 3-6 to the German star.

Nadal struggled early in the match, losing the first set 6-3 to Zverev. However, the second set saw the former World No. 1 showcase his resilience, pushing Zverev to the limit. Cameras captured Djokovic's keen interest as he watched the thrilling encounter.

Special Guest Watching Rafael Nadal In Action

Rafael Nadal had a notable spectator during his first-round match at the French Open 2024, as World No. 1 and longtime rival Novak Djokovic watched from the stands. Joining Djokovic were Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek, who also came to see Nadal in action against Alexander Zverev.

This match marked Nadal's return to Grand Slam tennis this year, as an injury had sidelined him from the Australian Open. Due to his low ranking, Nadal entered the tournament unseeded and faced a challenging draw. It will be interesting to see whether the Spaniard will play next year or will decide to put an end to an illustrious career of tennis.
