Players to look out for:


Iga Swiatek will be the heavy favorite to win the Madrid Open this year. The World No. 1 has been in sensational form with four successive titles under her belt this season. Others who can also contend for the title are local favorite Paula Badosa, reigning champion Aryna Sabalenka and Maria Sakkari.


Rafael Nadal will be a heavy favorite to win the competition provided he participates. The likes of Carlos Alcaraz, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev and Casper Ruud can also provide sterncompetition. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic may not have his expectations too high but if he finds his rhythm, he will be hard to beat as well.
