Rafael Nadal will make his first appearance since his historic 12th French Open victory in south London on Wednesday and you can watch his match live on a free Facebook feed.

Two-time Wimbledon champion Nadal opted not to play at the Fever-Tree Championships at The Queen’s Club last week, as he took extra time off after his heroics at Roland Garros.

Now British tennis fans will get the chance to watch Nadal in The Aspall Tennis Classic at Hurlingham, where he is due to play two matches in the coming days.

“I am always happy to play at The Hurlingham Club and be close to UK tennis fans,” said Nadal. “It is a prestigious ground in one of the best settings in the UK, making it the perfect way to warm up for Wimbledon.”

World No.4 Dominic Thiem is also on a star-studded cast-list at the Hurlingham Club, as he will play what should be an attractive match against Nick Kyrgios on Friday.

“I am really pleased to be playing at this year’s Aspall Tennis Classic,” said Thiem. “It will be my first time playing at the club so I’m excited to get on the grass before Wimbledon commences. It looks like a beautiful event.”

All matches will be live streamed on the tournament’s Facebook page here – https://www.facebook.com/AspallTennisClassic/
