Another venue will be built at La Caja Mágica – the home of Mutua Madrid Open – in Madrid, Spain. It is likely to be a 10,000-person venue.

The ‘tennisnet’ stated that the above announcement was made by the organizers of Madrid Open on social media while declaring that the Mutua Madrid Open will stay in Madrid until 2030.

The La Caja Mágica is a multipurpose stadium which sits in Madrid, Spain. Since 2009, it has been the home of the Madrid Open tennis event, and as of 2019, the home of the Davis Cup. There are three courts under one structure, and a series of retractable roofs.

The Madrid Open, currently sponsored by Mutua Madrileña and known as the Mutua Madrid Open, is a joint men’s and women’s professional tennis tournament held in Madrid during early May. The clay-court event is classified as an ATP Tour Masters 1000 (features the best men’s tennis players at nine top tournaments on the ATP Tour calendar) on the ATP Tour and a WTA 1000 event (a category of tennis tournaments in the Women’s Tennis Association tour) on the WTA Tour.

The one person who is pleased as punch on the above development is tennis great Rafael Nadal.

Rafael ‘Rafa’ Nadal Parera is a Spanish professional tennis player. He is ranked World No. 6 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), has been ranked No. 1 in the ATP rankings for 209 weeks, and has finished as the year-end No. 1 five times.

The ‘tennisnet’ further stated that Nadal was able to stretch the trophy into the sky five times in his glorious career at the Mutua Madrid Open, the most recent being in the year 2017 when the clay court king trounced the Austrian tennis player Dominic Thiem in the final of the ATP Masters 1000 event. Although the Mallorcan’s has not tasted success since then, Nadal will still get enough opportunities to flex his tennis muscle again in the Spanish capital. At least, this is what the organizers believe.

On hearing that the ATP Masters 1000 event will stay in Madrid until 2030, a delighted Nadal said, “I think we are privileged. There are many places in the world who would give their right hand to hold such a prestigious tournament. We are really fortunate that the tennis extravaganza will remain in Madrid until 2030 and should put our best foot forward.”

The 20-time Grand Slam title winner Nadal asserted, “The City of Madrid will have to play a key role while organizing an event of this stature in Spain. Undoubtedly, Madrid is putting up a best show but the economic rewards which they will reap by holding such a prestigious tennis tournament are even greater.”

This year the Spaniard could only make it to the quarter-finals of the Madrid Open where he fell flat against the German tennis player Alexander Zverev.

The 2022 edition of the clay court classic will take place from April 28th to May 9th. It is hoped that World No. 6 Nadal will recover from his foot injury by then for which the Spaniard had to end the season early this year.

The 2021 Madrid Open (sponsored by Mutua) was a professional tennis tournament played on outdoor clay courts at Caja Mágica in Madrid, Spain from April 29th to May 9th, 2021.

London (UK)-headquartered the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) is the governing body of the men’s professional tennis circuits – the ATP Tour, the ATP Challenger Tour and the ATP Champions Tour.
