The Madrid Open is expanding. The tournament has announced that it will take place over two weeks in 2021, from April 27 to May 9.

According to a statement on the tournament’s website:

In 2021, the Mutua Madrid Open will start on Tuesday 27 April with the WTA qualifying round, while the first round of the main draw in the women’s tournament will take place on Thursday 29. The ATP qualifiers will begin on Friday 30, with the first round starting on Sunday 2 May.


Naturally this will have an effect on the tournaments happening on the week of April 26. The Estoril Open is one of them, along with the WTA Prague Open, but the calendars of each tour have yet to be finalized due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Mutua Madrid Open was cancelled in 2020, and instead held a virtual event where players competed on live streamed video tennis.

“We’re happy to have achieved the goal of becoming a two-week tournament”, said Feliciano López, director of the Mutua Madrid Open. “We sought this expansion and it is well-deserved, necessary and will allow us to enjoy the best tennis in the world at the Caja Mágica for a few more days. I’m sure that both our sponsors and all the fans will welcome this news with open arms, as well as the city of Madrid, which will receive more visitors for a longer period of time”.
