Madrid Open 2024 Introduction

Madrid Open History

Starting in 2002, the Madrid Open was classified as the ATP Masters tournament, which replaced the Eurocard Open played in Stuttgart. However, in 2009, it was reintroduced with a new surface and location and the inclusion of the WTA tournament in the circuit. Earlier, the tournament was played on a hard indoor court, but it was later shifted to a clay court outdoors in 2009.


In 2012, previous owner Tiriac implemented the idea of playing the tournament on blue clay for all surfaces in the WTA and ATP categories. The director of the tournament, Manuel Santana, ensured that the blue surface had all the properties of traditional red clay. However, after the 2012 event, threats from players like Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic led the organizers to return to traditional red clay.


Aryna Sabalenka is the 2023 Madrid Open champion in the singles category who is going to defend her title. Victoria Azarenka and Beatriz Haddad Maia are the winners in the doubles category. Petra Kvitova holds the record of winning the tournament the most number of times in the singles category. Simona Halep has reached the final of the tournament four times.
