Madrid Open 2019 Tournament Schedule

WTA Madrid Players 2019

The full entry list for the 2019 Mutua Madrid Open has not yet been released - but as a WTA Premier Mandatory event, it is sure to feature all the best players in the world.

Here are some of the top stars who have been confirmed to play the 2019 Mutua Madrid Open when it begins on Saturday 4 May.

Naomi Osaka
World no. 1 Osaka has only won one match at the Mutua Madrid Open so far - but then, she had never won a WTA Tour title before winning Indian Wells, or made the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam before claiming the US Open and Australian Open titles in 2018-19. Will the Caja Magica be the next territory for Osaka to conquer?

Petra Kvitova
Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova became the most successful WTA player in the history of the Mutua Madrid Open when she won her third title in Madrid in 2018, breaking a three-way tie with Serena Williams and Simona Halep. 
Champion at the Caja Magica in 2011, 2015 and 2018, when she defeated Kiki Bertens in the final to win the fourth of five titles she would capture that season, Kvitova started 2019 by making the Australian Open final and winning Sydney.

Simona Halep
Former world no. 1 Simona Halep warms up for her French Open title defense at the Mutua Madrid Open, where she won the title in 2016-17. With a stellar 22-7 record in Madrid, Halep may have suffered a surprise loss in the quarterfinals to Karolina Pliskova in 2018, but the Romanian is a player nobody's going to want to face at the Caja Magica in 2019.

Garbine Muguruza
French Open and Wimbledon champion Muguruza will be warmly received by the Mutua Madrid Open crowds as she tries to improve an unimpressive 6-7 record at the tournament where she was defeated by Daria Kasatkina in the round of 16 in 2018.

Kiki Bertens
French Open semifinalist Bertens may have proved that she's much more than a clay-court specialist in 2018 when she won titles in Cincinnati and Seoul (not to mention the St Petersburg Ladies Trophy crown she has already picked up in 2019). But that's not to suggest that the Dutch star is anything less than a very formidable force on clay, as she proved with her brilliant run to the final in Madrid in 2018, and nobody will want to face Bertens at the Caja Magica in 2019.

Stay tuned for more news about the players scheduled to appear at the Mutua Madrid Open in 2019.

About the Madrid Open

Together with the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, the Miami Open, the China Open in Beijing and the season-ending WTA Finals now held in Shenzhen, the Premier Mandatory-level Mutua Madrid Open is one of the five biggest tournaments on the WTA Tour outside the four Grand Slams – and as the only one played on clay, it occupies a unique position in the lead-up to the French Open.

Madrid has a long association with top-level women’s tennis, having held a clay-court event the week before the French Open from 1996 to 2003 and hosting the year-end championships in 2006 and 2007. It also held the Madrid Masters for the men on indoor hard courts in the autumn between 2002 and 2008.

It was in 2009 that the Mutua Madrid Open, under the direction of Manolo Santana and Ion Tiriac, took on its present form, as the biggest combined ATP and WTA event of the clay-court season. The iconic Caja Magica – or ‘Magic Box’ – venue was unveiled with its three show courts featuring retractable roofs, and Dinara Safina won the inaugural edition of the tournament, beating Caroline Wozniacki in the final.

Since its inaugural year, the Mutua Madrid Open has continued to attract the top stars of women’s tennis, although that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been room for the unexpected – like the dazzling run of Frenchwoman Aravane Rezai in 2010, who beat Venus Williams in the final to claim the title. Serena Williams became the first woman to win multiple titles in Madrid when she won the Premier Mandatory-level event in 2012 and 2013, beating Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova respectively; and also the first woman to win the Madrid Open and the French Open in the same year in 2013, with Sharapova following suit in 2014. 

Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova became the second women to win multiple Madrid titles when she stormed her way to the crown in 2015, having first won in 2011, and 2014 French Open runner-up Simona Halep beat Dominika Cibulkova to win her first Madrid title in 2016 - defending her title in 2017, beating Kristina Mladenovic in the final, to become the third woman to win more than one crown at the Caja Magica. 

Kvitova's run to the title in 2018, however, which saw her subdue the challenge of Kiki Bertens in the final, saw the left-handed Czech become the first player to win three titles at the Madrid Open.

With 64 players in the singles draw and no first-round byes for seeds, there is plenty of room for the unexpected to develop and clashes between top seeds and dangerous floaters are guaranteed from the very earliest days of the women’s draw at the Caja Magica – and with prize money, ranking points and prestige and confidence ahead of the French Open on the line, the battles are fierce as the first big event of the clay-court season takes place in Madrid. 

Simona Halep is one of three women to have won the Madrid Open and the French Open
