ROME, Italy — After not participating in the U.S. Open due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, Rafael Nadal is returning to action in the Italian Open on Tuesday, September 15.

Nadal will be taking on Pablo Carrano-Busto in his first game back in action in which online sportsbooks have him listed as the heavy favorite.

Rafael Nadal vs. Pablo Carreno-Busta Odds

  • Nadal -1800
  • Carreno-Busta +900

Nadal is clearly the favorite here considering that he has won nine out of his last ten matches which includes a first-place win in the Mexican Open.

On the other hand, Carreno-Busta is someone who could possibly pull off an upset over Nadal after a strong outing in the US Open where he defeated both Novak Djokovic and Denis Shapovalov.

This will mark Nadal’s first game back in action since February 29 and he is looking to hit the ground running in his return.
