Madrid Open 2023 tennis preview

The 2023 Madrid Open is coming to a thrilling conclusion at the La Caja Mágica in today's men's singles final, featuring Spanish idol and defending champion Carlos Alcaraz against Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff. The match starts at 5.30pm BST so there's just time for a chilled glass of Sangria. So far, it's one set apiece.

There are at few players in the draw that feel just as close a connection with the Manolo Santana as Alcaraz. And with one of the biggest first serves in the game, not to mention exceptional speed, he's the solid favourite to win today's men's singles final.    

Struff wasn't expected to make the latter stages of the Madrid Open but he's already proven he has the skills to beat the Spaniard having won his first meeting with Alcaraz, at Roland Garros in 2021, in straight sets. He was up two sets to one in their second meeting, at Wimbledon in 2022, before losing in five sets. Can he stop local boy Alcaraz?

Yesterday, Aryna Sabalenka won her second Madrid Open title with victory over world No.1 Iga Swiatek in the women's final. Read on and we'll show you how to watch a 2023 Madrid Open free stream...
