The 2022 Madrid Open – the world-famous outdoor clay court showdown at La Caja Mágica – has reached the men's final day and it's a match-up that no one expected. Spanish youngster Carlos Alcaraz Garfia plays German Alexander Zverev to find out who will be the Mutua Madrid Master. Can the local boy thrill his home country fans and take an ATP title? The Madrid Open Final starts at 5.30pm this afternoon. Make sure you know how to watch a Madrid Open live stream wherever you are.
Tennis fans in the UK and Ireland can stream every match live on Amazon Prime Video and new subscribers get a 30-day free trial. Brits trying to tune in from abroad will need to use a VPN to watch the 2022 Madrid Masters on Prime from outside the UK.
The Mutua Madrid Open takes place at one of the most spectacular venues in sport – the wood, iron and glass La Caja Mágica (aka The Magic Box). This year will be the 20th edition of the legendary WTA 1000 event. First prize for both titles is a cool €1,041,570.
Carlos Alcaraz Garfia took out both Rafael Nadal, in the quarters, and then Novak Djokovic in the semis in a hugely impressive run that will have the big players looking over their shoulders as the season heads to the summer Grand Slams.
It was today's Madrid Masters final opponent, Alexander Zverev, that won the trophy last year, though. He had to get past the in-form Stefanos Tsitsipas in a semi-final and will have experience to rely on against Alcaraz Garfia but can the home crowd carry the youngster through?
