Rafael Nadal is going to return back to action on Tuesday for the first time, since losing season’s opening Grand slam Australian Open quarter finals last month. However, Nadal wants to give tough challenge to his opening round opponent Bellucci on Tuesday scheduled match and hopes to regain old form to clinch second Rio Open crown.

27-year-old Brazilian star Thomaz Bellucci will have to play high level tennis to beat top seed in front of home fans on Tuesday night. Bellucci has been struggling with his form from past season and it is not easy for home favorite to reach second round.

The pair last meet at the 2012 Wimbledon Championships opening round and Nadal won the match in three sets with a 7-6, 6-2, 6-3. As per the predictions, Nadal is looking hot favorite to clinch victory in consecutive sets and advances into ATP Rio Open second round.
