Keeping up with the game of tennis, by the numbers. Each day at Tennis Now we’ll give you a fresh set—Here’s a numerical rundown of what happened on Tuesday in Madrid.


Number of days between Roger Federer’s straight-set victory over Richard Gasquet on Tuesday and his last match on Clay in 2016. Yep, it had been a while…


Number of consecutive wins notched by Ashleigh Barty. The Aussie will face Yulia Putintseva in the round of 16 at Madrid on Wednesday.


Number of wins on clay earned by Croatia’s Petra Martic. She did not need to win today as she moved through when Angelique Kerber pulled out with an ankle injury in Madrid. Martic currently leads the WTA in wins on clay in 2019 and will face Donna Vekic for a spot in the quarter-finals. See the full R16 lineup in Madrid for women’s singles below.


Number of career wins earned by David Ferrer. The legendary Spaniard added to his total on Tuesday with a 6-4 4-6 6-4 win over Roberto Bautista Agut. He’ll face Alexander Zverev in the second round on Wednesday.


Alexander Zverev’s record in his last 10 matches. The German is 13-8 overall and 8-1 lifetime at Madrid. The slump has not affected his popularity, particularly in Germany.


Number of clay-court wins by Guido Pella in 2019. The Argentine has had a banner year, winning his first career title in Sao Paulo and reaching a career-high ranking of 26 last month. Pella will face Stan Wawrinka in second-round action on Wednesday.

6-0 6-0

The scoreline of Naomi Osaka’s last battle with Aliaksandra Sasnovich, which happened at last year’s U.S. Open in the third round. The pair will meet on Wednesday at Madrid, second up on Manolo Santana.


Lucas Pouille snapped a six-match ATP-level losing streak on Monday when he defeated Borna Coric in straight sets. He’s also fresh off the Bordeaux Challenger title. The Frenchman, who reached his first major final this January in Melbourne, will look for a seventh win (all levels) in succession when he faces Hubert Hurkacz on Wednesday.
