Rafael Nadal and Casper Rudd will jet to South America for a lucrative five-nation exhibition tour which begins three days after the November 20 final at  the season-ending ATP event in Turin.

The pair – Norwegian Ruud spoke Spanish in their promotional video – will reap the rewards of hit-and-giggle matches in Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Quito, Belo Horizonte and Mexico City.

No. 2 Ruud, losing Roland Garros finalist to Nadal last June, is no stranger to the Latin world, winning ATP titles in Buenos Aires in 2020 and 2022.
