Madrid Open Tennis Travel packages 2019
Tennis is coming back to the capital of Spain on May the 3rd – 12th 2019.
As one of three ATP tournaments annually held in Spain and as a Premier Mandatory event in the WTA, the Madrid Open is always a highly anticipated event within the tennis world. The Madrid Open 2019 will mark the tenth anniversary of La Caja Mágica’s opening, which has proudly been the host of the competition since 2009.
Holding both men and women’s fixtures, alongside the doubles, the event is always jam-packed full of excitement. Fans across the globe enjoy flocking into Europe’s third-largest city, where they can experience some world-class tennis action and soak in the beautiful scenery on show.
With the notorious names of Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep all scheduled to participate, the Madrid Open 2019 certainly is a place that will be holding all the hottest tennis stars.

A Spanish Ruler of the Capital
As a frequent dominator of most ATP venues, it is of no surprise to see Nadal’s name be of regular mention within the history books of the Madrid Open. Boasting 5 titles to his name, the Spaniard is the record holder for the most wins in the competitions history, much to the delight of his home nations fans. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the King of Clay live in action.
If his form continues, Nadal will undoubtedly lead the outright odds for the tournament, but the usual faces of Djokovic and Roger Federer will inevitably be just behind him. As the current top three leaders of the ATP rankings, the iconic trio continue to stand out from the rest.
Spanish fans are certainly drawn into the event to experience their most decorated tennis star in Nadal live in the flesh – will you be supporting the crowd favourite, or be rooting for an upset?
The Battle for the Womens Top Spot
As opposed to the men’s history, the women have not experienced such dominance from an individual during the Madrid Open, ever since they started taking part back in 2009. The current record holder is currently Petra Kvitova, who respectably holds three titles to her name.
Just behind the Czech, with two trophies in her cabinet, is current WTA leader, Simona Halep. The Romanian won back-to-back Madrid Opens in 2016 and 2017, making her the first woman tennis player to do so since Serena Williams back in 2014 and 2015. In fact, it could be argued that Halep has assumed this power vacuum left by Williams within the WTA leaderboard in recent times, as the American continues her slow recovery back into the sport.
It certainly is a close call, with regards to calling a winner, as fellow stars in Angelique Kerber and Caroline Wozniacki will also be expecting their names to be thrown into the mix, as both continue their impressive form this calendar year.
Doubles Action on Show
Alongside the single’s fixtures are also the doubles in action. From the men’s point of view, it will inevitably be all eyes on the Bryan brothers, who have asserted themselves as the dominating force within the Madrid Open. Boasting 5 titles to their name, the Americans are the record holders with regards to doubles victories in the tournament. Their last victory did, however, occur back in 2013, but you can never rule the dynamic duo out of contention.
In terms of the current WTA double’s rankings, it couldn’t be closer at the top of the table. Last years winners in Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina will be looking to defend their title and hope to become the first women’s doubles since Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, to claim more than one Madrid Open title. The two current leaders of the rankings (at the time of writing), Katerina Siniakova and Barbora Krejcikova, will however be right behind on their tales.
