Bernabe Zapata Miralles

This achievement is significant as it is his best season so far in 2023. He also did well during the South American clay swing and followed it by securing his second top-20 win in Estoril. Zapata Miralles is known for his tenacity and ability to win long matches, despite facing fitness issues throughout his career. He has won eight out of ten matches that went to a deciding set against tough opponents like Hubert Hurkacz and Francisco Cerundolo.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Stefanos Tsitsipas has been struggling to find his groove this year and his performances at the Madrid Masters haven’t been any different. He was taken to three sets by Sebastian Baez and lost the first set to the struggling Dominic Thiem in his opening match. Tsitsipas has yet to find satisfaction with his results this year and has suffered defeats in his attempts to win his first slam and an ATP 500 title. However, the world #5 has consistently performed well on clay, reaching at least the quarterfinals in his last nine ATP events on this surface.
