This hard court event takes place in Qizong Forest Sports City Arena, South-west of Shanghai and is the 8th leg out of the 9 ATP world tours this year. This exciting tournament is set to keep your eyes fixated on your bets from 8 to 15 October 2017.
Rafael Nadal vs Jared Donaldson Head to Head Records
On 10th October 2017 Tuesday at 1200 (GMT), the World no.1 Spaniard will compete against World no. 56, American, Jared Donaldson for the first time. Jared Donaldson is 21 years young, and has once beaten ex-Shanghai Masters 2016 finalist, Roberto Bautisa-Agut in this year’s Cincinnati Open (7-6, 6-3). Even though they are ranked pretty far apart, there is a possibility that things could take a turn in this match.
However on the other hand, in the recent China Open in Beijing, Nadal defeated Nick Kyrgios for the title and he could get lucky the second time.
