ATP Madrid Open live scores, results today, draws
The Madrid Open 2021 will take place from April 30 to May 9, 2021, in Spain's sunny capital. It will be the 19th rendition of the ATP 1000 tennis tournament as organisers decided to cancel the 2020 Madrid Open edition due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The wait will likely make tennis fans even more excited when the Madrid Open schedule 2021 is revealed. The Madrid tennis 2021 fixtures will feature the best of the best in the tennis world, and fans are buzzing with excitement only at the thought of it.
ATP Madrid 2021 Outlook
Rafael Nadal has won the Madrid Open a record five times and will once again be the man to beat when the male tennis elite gathers for Madrid ATP 2021. Nadal has played some of his best tennis in front of his compatriots, and he will likely try to do that in 2021 too.
However, the last time the Spaniard won the Madrid Open was in 2017. As the years are catching up with Spain's Raging Bull, it will be even more difficult for him to perform at the top level.
His semi-final elimination at the hands of Stefanos Tsitsipas in 2019 and Novak Djokovic's subsequent triumph over the Greek star are a testament to this.
And it won't only be Tsitsipas and Djokovic that will try to usurp the King of Clay in his backyard. The likes of 2018 Madrid Open winner Alexander Zverev, two-time finalist Dominic Thiem, and the evergreen Roger Federer will also be in contention to win.
