Mutua Madrid Open: When Is The Draw & More
The Mutua Madrid Open, held at Caja Magica, is the second of three ATP Masters 1000 tournaments played on clay. Rafael Nadal, who made his tournament debut in 2003, has won a record five titles from eight Madrid finals.
Nadal will look to reclaim the Madrid trophy in 2019, and faces a field that includes a trio of former titlists - World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, defending champion Alexander Zverev, Roger Federer - as well as Dominic Thiem. Nadal lost to Thiem in the 2018 Madrid quarter-finals and last week in the Barcelona semi-finals.
Federer, a three-time champion in Madrid, is making his return to the European clay-clay swing for the first time since 2016. The 37-year-old Swiss is playing his first tournament since winning the Masters 1000 title at the Miami Open presented by Itau, and enters Madrid two victories shy of his 1200th match win.
