Mutua Madrid Open 2023 Doubles Predictions

We continue with the clay court season. This time we will see 64 pairings battle it out for the Mutua Madrid Open title. There will be action in both ATP and WTA. This will be the second clay-court Masters for the men’s category, while it will be the first in the women’s category. 

Mutua Madrid Open Doubles

In the WTA category, the defending champions will be Gabriela Dabrowski and Giuliana Olmos who defeated Desirae Krawczyk and Demi Schuurs in the last final of the Madrid Open Doubles. On this occasion, Canada’s Dabrowski will defend the title but this time paired with Brazil’s Luisa Estefani. While Mexico’s Giuliana Olmos will do so alongside Russia’s Alexandra Panova.

In the ATP category, Wesley Koolof and Neal Skupski defeated Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah in the final of the previous edition. The Dutch-British couple has been the main favourites in most events this season. Also, watch out for Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek who became champions in Monte Carlo after beating Romain Ameodo and Tristan Samuel Weissborn in the final.

Gauff/Pegula vs Azarenka/Haddad Maia prediction: Khachanov/Rublev to Win

The American pair are just one step away from winning their second consecutive title. After winning the Miami Open, they decided not to participate in some events, but they are back in action at the Madrid Open 2023 and have now won 9 consecutive titles. Azarenka and Haddad Maia recently teamed up for their first tournament together and the combination was explosive.

The Russian-Brazilian duo managed to overcome opponents with some difficulty but with great success. If we evaluate how each pair got to this round, we will notice that Gauff and Pegula had a better average of sets won. While the American players won 10 out of 11 sets, Azarenka and Haddad Maia won 6 out of 8. Based on these facts, we predict that Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula will lift another title.

Mutua Madrid Open 2023 Doubles Contenders


Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski

The Dutch-British couple is the favourite to win the most important tournaments this year. This year they have not made it to the final rounds, but have yet to win their first title. At the Australia Open, Miami Open, and Monte Carlo where they reached the quarter-finals. In Adelaide and Acapulco, they advanced to the semi-finals. Their biggest success was in Indian Wells and Barcelona where they were finalists.

Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury

The British-Finnish Couple have not lived up to expectations this season as despite being favourites in the events they participate in, their best result has been a semi-final in Pune. In major tournaments such as the Australian Open, they have been left in the early rounds, as they did recently in Monte Carlo where they barely reached the second round.

Marcelo Arévalo and Jean-Julien Rojer

After winning in Delray Beach, the Argentine-Netherlands pair have had many negative results in fact they have only won one of their last six matches and have been knocked out of each tournament in the early rounds. This will be the pair’s third tournament on clay. They are expected to perform well as one of the main seeds.

Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic

The Croatian duo will be hoping for a good result to turn the page on their recent dismal performances. Mektic and Pavic have now lost three consecutive tournaments in the first round, two of them on clay. The last time they won a match was more than a month ago in Indian Wells, where they defeated the duo of Casper Ruud and Dominic Thiem.


Gabriela Dabrowski and Luisa Estefani

Both players decided to pair up at the end of the previous year and have since won a title in Chennai. However, this year has not been so successful for the Canadian-Brazilian couple whose best result was a quarter-final in Indian Wells. Their only clay court tournament this season was in Stuttgart where they lost in the second round. Still, they have to be taken into account as Dabrowski was one of the champions of the previous edition of the Mutua Madrid Open Doubles.

Giuliana Olmos and Alexandra Panova

The Mexican tennis player also wants to defend her title but this time she will have to do it together with the Russian Alexandra Panova. It will be interesting to see the performance of both players in this competition as it is the first time they have teamed up as a duo.
