ATP Madrid: Cameron Norrie vs Joao Fonseca

World No 30 Cameron Norrie will have his hands full in a first-ever clash with teenager Joao Fonseca.

Fonseca is 14-10 across the clay court season against the 5-4 record of Norrie and though he has entered more tournaments, has bagged a better win ratio.

Norrie has made a poor start to the season and slipped out of the top 20 and continues to slide down the rankings.

Fonseca is a modest No 242 in the world but form suggests he is good for the upset win here.


ATP Madrid: Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Adrian Mannarino

Felix Auger-Aliassime is treading the comeback trail and will look to snatch back a win from Adrian Mannarino.

Mannarino has won the only previous meeting between these players which also came in Masters action.

Mannarino holds an edge over Auger-Aliassime in terms of his ranking as well right now having enjoyed better form over the last year.

However, Auger-Aliassime looks close to his best and could be impossible to stop.


ATP Madrid: Roberto Bautista Agut vs Karen Khachanov

Roberto Bautista Agut and Karen Khachanov clash for the 11th time in their careers.

While the Spaniard leads the head-to-head 6-4 it is Khachanov who has won the last two meetings including one in Marseille in February.

Khachanov will have recent form on his side for this clash as he has enjoyed more wins week to week this season.

Bautista Agut has the home crowd behind him but that won't bother ice-cool Khachanov.


ATP Madrid: Miomir Kecmanovic vs Casper Ruud

Miomir Kecmanovic will clash with Casper Ruud for the fifth time in their careers overall and for the third time on clay.

Ruud has won two and lost two across that time but did come out on top when last they met in Estoril last term.

Ruud has won his last five matches on clay after his run to the Barcelona title, the biggest of his career to date.

Ruud has the edge in form but will need to maintain his high level of play from last week.


WTA Madrid: Leylah Annie Fernandez vs Ons Jabeur

Leylah Annie Fernandez and Ons Jabeur meet in a clash of seeds in the round of 32.

Jabeur has won both of the previous meetings between these players.

The Tunisian has endured a rough season but has looked to have shaken off the knee injury that has troubled her.

Fernandez will still feel she is ranked below her class and will want to prove it in this encounter.


WTA Madrid: Beatriz Haddad Maia vs Emma Navarro

Brazil's Beatriz Haddad Maia is set for a tough match when she takes on Emma Navarro.

They last met in the bizarre 2021 season, when the Charleston Open took place in July of that year.

Navarro won that match and has only improved as a player since making her way up the rankings.

Haddad Maia has stalled just a little as a prospect for big titles and could falter here.


WTA Madrid: Madison Keys vs Liudmilla Samsonova

Madison Keys is set to do battle with Liudmilla Samsonova for the fourth time with the American leading 2-1 in the head-to-head.

Keys has won the last two encounters but these players have never met on clay.

Neither play has set the WTA Tour alight this season and both had tough first matches in Madrid.

Samsonova snapped a three-match losing streak and that could spark her to kick on and enjoy a great clay swing.


WTA Madrid: Coco Gauff vs Dayana Yastremska

Coco Gauff needs to reach the fourth round at least to keep the No 2 ranking in play for the next update.

She has been handed a tricky second match in Madrid against No 31 seed Yastremska.

Gauff double-bagled her first opponent in just 51 minutes while Yastremska took over two hours to come through her first match after she dropped the opening set to love.

Yastremska has had a decent season but has won just two of her last six matches and Gauff should be able to expose her weaknesses.
