The ATP Madrid Masters is live and available to watch and bet on tennis online.
The ATP Madrid Masters, part of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Series, is played every year at the beginning of May. The event features all of the world’s best players, who arrive prepared to battle it out for their share of the total prize money. Having been in existence for little over a decade, the ATP Madrid Masters has already made a name for itself as a thrilling and crowd-pleasing event.
The tournament had been played on indoor hard courts until 2009 when the event was moved to ‘the Magic Box’, or the Manzanares Park Tennis Centre as it also known. The courts of the Manzanares Park Tennis Centre, three of which are in stadiums, are all outdoor clay courts. The stadium surrounding the centre court is particularly impressive, holding up to 12,442 fans at maximum capacity.
The ATP Madrid Masters is currently referred to as the Mutua Madrid Open due to its current sponsors. In 2012, the controversial decision to switch to blue clay was linked with the sponsors, but the clay has reverted to a more traditional (and certainly more popular) red.
Andre Agassi won the inaugural event in Madrid in 2002, and he’s since been joined on the honours list by other former champs such as Juan Carlos Ferrero, Marat Safin, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic. The calibre of these past winners is indicative of the quality of tennis that spectators can expect to see at the ATP Madrid Masters.
Some of the greatest doubles teams of recent years have also lifted titles here. These include four time winners Bob and Mike Bryan, Mark Knowles and Daniel Nestor (who won the competition three times as a partnership), and Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic.
The ATP Madrid Masters is without a doubt one of the most important events of the year, especially for clay court maestros. Three Madrid champs have gone on to win the French Open in the same year - Ferrero (2003), Nadal (2005, 2010, 2013, 2014) and Federer (2009).
Whilst other events provide valuable clay court practice for the French Slam, the ATP Madrid Masters provides a vibrant atmosphere and plenty to play for, to some extent mirroring the conditions at a Slam. Big names, exciting matches and great tennis are regular features of this event.
