Livescore Sunday, May 19

Las Vegas is known for many things stateside, but has recently become one of America’s sporting capitals in a very short space of time. Hosting the Super Bowl just weeks ago and the National Rugby League’s opening round this very weekend, the City of Lights now turns its attention to tennis as the first-ever ‘Netflix Slam’ gets underway on Sunday, March 3.

This exhibition event on the grounds of the famous Mandalay Bay Hotel sees two world-class players go toe-to-toe on the court, as 22-time grand slam winner Rafael Nadal faces off against his fellow Spaniard and reigning Wimbledon champion Carlos Alcaraz. 

Both players are yet to really make much of a dent on this year’s ATP Tour, with Nadal reaching the quarterfinals of January’s Brisbane International and Alcaraz getting to the last four of the Argentina Open last month, but ahead of playing each other in this exhibition match, the two stars will be keen to put on a show in the entertainment capital of the world.

Netflix’s own tennis tournament will be shown exclusively on the streaming service, with coverage from Mandalay Bay resort being shown live and on catch-up for all Netflix subscribers. There’s plenty of big names both on and off the court too, with Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick just two of the sport’s legends providing commentary and analysis on the match.

Where is Rafael Nadal vs Carlos Alcaraz taking place?

This one-off event is being hosted by MGM International at the Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas, which is located on the city’s main strip and in the same grounds as the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

The 12,000-seater venue is usually fitted for concerts and other entertainment — with Allegiant Stadium on the opposite side of the freeway one of the city’s main sporting attractions — but Lacrosse’s Desert Dogs and Las Vegas Aces of the WNBA also call the stadium home.

Nadal and Alcaraz will be playing on a newly-laid artificial grass court, as Sin City prepares to host the two multiple-grand slam champions in an exhibition match for the ages.
