The opening day of action is here at the Madrid Open with first round action in the WTA dominating proceedings as well as the completion of qualifying. ATP will begin on Wednesday and the bigger names come into proceedings throughout the week.
Our preview and schedule looks ahead to the opening day at the Caja Magica with Sofia Kenin, Peyton Stearns and Anastasia Potapova all in action on Tuesday.
The main leading lights all end the session with Stearns who could yet face Victoria Azarenka again after their battle in Miami mainly hitting the news due to the presence of Vika’s ex boyfriend Redfoo. But it is Tatjana Maria that the Cincinnati native has to navigate first. Then it is an all Russian affair as rising star Diana Shnaider, a first time titlist on tour this season faces Anastasia Potapova aiming to return to her best.
The same can be said for Sofia Kenin who started the off season with such promise at the World Tennis League but had barely been able to string a win together. The former Australian Open champion faces Anna Karolina Schmiedlova. Others in action include both Fruhvirtova sisters with wildcards with Brenda facing Arantxa Rus and Linda taking on the returning Irina Camelia Begu. While Rafael Nadal Academy star Alexandra Eala faces Lesia Tsurenko. That is Day One of the Madrid Open and the start of a thrilling two weeks.
