Players competing at the Madrid Open 2023

The ATP field is headlined by three-time champion Novak Djokovic, with defending champion Carlos Alcaraz the No.2 seed.

The biggest omission from the men’s field is that of five-time champion Rafael Nadal, who revealed that he was ‘unable’ to compete at his home Masters 1000 event due to his ongoing psoas injury.

Main draw wildcards have been awarded to Stan Wawrinka, Dominic Thiem, Martin Landaluce and Abedallah Shelbayh, with one more still to be offered out.

The WTA draw sees the return of Iga Swiatek to Madrid, after missing the tournament last year.

Both of last year’s finalists, Ons Jabeur and Jessica Pegula, also return to the Spanish capital, however Belinda Bencic misses out with a hip injury.

The women’s wildcards have been given to Elina Svitolina, Camila Osorio, Victoria Jimenez Kasintseva, Alexandra Eala, Brenda Fruhvirtova, Marina Bassols, Rebeka Masarova and Mirra Andreeva.
