The Mutua Madrid Open 2024 is experiencing its first day of the quarterfinals this Wednesday, May 1. We will meet the protagonists of the first semifinal after a Monday marked by the goodbye of Rafa Nadal.

The Balearic player could not withstand the momentum of the Czech Jiri Lehecka and was eliminated in the round of 16. The 22-year-old Czech won 7-5 and 6-4 in two hours and two minutes and advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament where he will face the Russian Daniil Medvedev, third seed, who previously left out the Kazakh Alexander Bublik (7 -6(3) and 6-4.

Things went better for Carlos Alcaraz. The double defender of the title in Madrid bordered on elimination against the German Jan-Lennard Struff, whom he finally beat 6-3, 6-7 (5) and 7-6 (4) in a match full of errors and genius by part of both.

The champion and the 2023 finalist met again a year after the Spaniard won the title match (6-4, 3-6 and 6-3) and Alcaraz, second seed, repeated victory in three roundsbut with two tiebreakers, after two hours and 52 minutes.

Jannik Sinner sealed his pass to the quarterfinals of the Madrid Masters 1,000 for the first time in his career after coming back against the Russian Karen Khachanov (5-7, 6-3 and 6-3) and overcoming the discomfort in her right hip that she has had since the Monte Carlo tournament.
