The Madrid Open is ready to roll with the WTA 1000 tournament set to offer the finest female players in the world a shot at glory.
Newly-crowned world No.1 Iga Swiatek is on fire right now. The Polish superstar has won the last four tournaments she has entered and looks at ease on clay as she prepares for a bid to make it five in a row.
Emma Raducanu was defeated by Swiatek in Stuttgart last week as the British star reached the third round of a competition for the first time in 2022.
Raducanu will be determined to make the most of her opportunities on the tour before her US Open points are wiped off the slate after the heights of summer.
The men’s tournament is an ATP 500 event but it is expected to draw in the majority of the biggest available names to La Caja Magica despite one or two injury concerns.
World no.2 Daniil Medvedev will miss the tournament, and while clay king Rafael Nadal reportedly intends to play in Madrid, his injury comeback will need to be managed well ahead of the French Open.
Rising superstar Carlos Alcaraz Garfia – who triumphed in the Barcelona Open at the weekend – will be desperate to rack up another emphatic tournament display on home soil.
