Nadal said of his past with Ruud: “I think at the academy we were able to help him a little bit during that time.

“But more than any other thing at stake, I like to see the good man achieve his dreams.

“For me, Casper is one of the contenders to win any clay court event he plays. He’s one of the clear favourites. It’s not a big surprise at all.”

Ruud said of the record 21-time Grand Slam champion Nadal: “I will try to find something other than training how to beat him. I’ll just enjoy the moment.

“This is a special occasion for both of us. He’s playing for his 22nd. I’m playing for my first.”
