Mutua Madrid Open 2018 Tournament Schedule



Who is playing the Mutua Madrid Open in 2018?

The third Premier Mandatory WTA Tour event of the season is a huge prize in itself, as well as being a key battleground in the run-up to the French Open, so it’s no surprise that once more the best of the WTA will be back at the Caja Magica for the Mutua Madrid Open when the 2018 edition begins on Saturday 5 May.

The only Premier Mandatory-level event held on clay, the 2018 Mutua Madrid Open will be the tenth edition of its women's tournament. The first major event held on clay for the WTA Tour, WTA Madrid is always an intense eight-day battle for the title and this year looks to be no exception with all three of the women who have won multiple titles at the Caja Magica guaranteed to be in the field.

2016-17 Mutua Madrid Open champion Simona Halep will aim for an unprecedented third straight title as the Romanian, who reached her second major final at the 2017 French Open final and finished the year as the first woman from her country to be ranked world no. 1, leads the field at the Caja Magica under the watchful eye of her compatriot, tournament owner Ion Tiriac. But if Halep is to become the first to claim three Mutua Madrid Open titles, she's likely to have to contend with some very dangerous competition, starting with the two other women who have won multiple titles in Madrid: 2012-13 champion Serena Williams, who returns to the tour in 2018 as the mother of a new baby and looking to further bolster her credentials as the greatest of all time, and 2011 and 2015 champion Petra Kvitova, who defied expectations by making a successful comeback to tennis in mid-2017 despite having suffered serious knife wounds to her playing hand. 

Halep, Williams and Kvitova will be joined by 2014 Mutua Madrid Open champion Maria Sharapova, continuing to rebuild her career almost a year after returning from a suspension for doping violations, and a packed field of extremely dangerous players including 2009 runner-up and 2017 WTA Finals Singapore champion Caroline Wozniacki; 2011-12 Madrid runner-up and former world no. 1 Victoria Azarenka; 2010 runner-up Venus Williams; 2015 runner-up and former French Open winner Svetlana Kuznetsova; 2016 runner-up and WTA Finals Singapore champion Dominika Cibulkova and 2017 runner-up Kristina Mladenovic, the Frenchwoman who, alongside her compatriot Caroline Garcia, recorded a breakthrough season and reached the top 10 for the first time in 2017. 

Spanish fans will be firmly behind French Open and Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza, while the explosive Jelena Ostapenko will draw much attention after her stunning breakthrough win at Roland Garros in 2017. The big-serving Karolina Pliskova and CoCo Vandeweghe are just two of the dangerous top players who will also be included in a packed and unpredictable field when the 2018 Mutua Madrid Open begins on Saturday 5 May.

About the Mutua 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 Singapore, 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. 

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.
