The Madrid Open takes place at the beginning of May each year — the biggest event between the Australian Open in January and the French Open in June before summer and Wimbledon and the US Open.

It is now officially known as the Mutua Madrid Open as it is sponsored by the insurance conglomerate Mutua Madrileña.

Madrid Open on TV

In the United States, Tennis Channel has complete broadcast rights to the Madrid Open. It provides pretty much 24/7 coverage for the two weeks of the event.

But Tennis Channel is a must-have for all tennis fans. Even when the big channels like NBC, CBS, and ESPN provide the headline coverage, Tennis Channel is always on hand to show the less-popular matches and news coverage.

Streaming Madrid Open 2023

The Tennis Channel is not as widely available to live stream as other sports channels. There are three choices:

  • DIRECTV STREAM: $108.99/mo
  • Fubo: $79.99/mo + $11/mo for Sports Plus with NFL Redzone
  • Sling TV: $40.00/mo + $11/mo for Sports Extra

Note that Fubo also charges an RSN fee in most areas, so that price will likely be $10.99/mo to $13.99/mo more than stated above.

As a result, we recommend Sling TV for serious tennis fans.

Madrid Open

The Madrid Open is the largest tennis event in Spain. It is one of the newer events in professional tennis. It dates back to 2002 but its modern form really only goes back to 2009. Until that time, the event featured only men and was played on a hard court.

In 2009, it was changed to feature both men’s and women’s matches played on clay courts.

The prize money is also substantial with the winners of the singles tournaments getting over one million euros. The winners of the doubles events share almost 400,000 euros.

2022 Madrid Open Results

Spain’s own Carlos Alcaraz dominated the men’s singles at the 2022 Madrid Open — defeating fellow countryman Rafael Nadal in the Quarterfinals and number one seed Novak Djokovic in a very close match in the semifinals. He then easily defeated Alexander Zverev in the final.

On the women’s side, Iga Świątek withdrew from a shoulder injury and defending champion Aryna Sabalenka by Amanda Anisimova who was eliminated in the quarterfinals. Ultimately, Ons Jabeur from Tunisia defeated Jessica Pegula in the finals in three very strange sets.

Wesley Koolhof (Netherlands) & Neal Skupski (UK) won the men’s doubles and Gabriela Dabrowski (Canada) & Giuliana Olmos (Mexico) won the women’s doubles.
