Rafael Nadal Vs Lloyd Harris Preview
Rafa Nadal survived a first-round scare as he was pushed to the limit by home boy Jack Sock in a tense 3 setter. He did, however, emerge victorious after a match that lasted an enthralling 184 minutes. Sock at one point even led 3-1 in the deciding set but Rafa once again displayed his ability to dig in and turned the match around to win the 3rd set tiebreaker with a commanding 7-1 scoreline.
Lloyd Harris, meanwhile, spent only 51 minutes on court in his second-round match against Tennys Sandgren on Wednesday. Harris was leading 6-4, 1-0 when the American retired due to injury. The South African was particularly effective with his serve, conceding only eight points in five service games while also racking up 10 aces.

Rafael Nadal Vs Lloyd Harris Prediction
Despite looking vulnerable and in pain due to his foot injury in the win against Sock, the number one seed is expected to make a deep run into the tournament and even win it all. He will however be hampered by the 3 hours had to spend on court although he did rule out any injury concerns after the match. The only thing Harris can hope for will be a major upset.
Prediction: Nadal to advance to the quarters with a straight-set victory.
