Madrid Open Seeds 2023: Who Are the Seeds and How Are They Doing?

Hoping to track the top seeds in the 2023 Madrid Open? If so, you’ve come to the right page. I will be running through all you need to know concerning the top seeds as the tournament progresses. Of course, both the men’s and women’s singles will be covered, so let me get right to it.

Madrid Open Finals Updates 2023


One final has been completed at the 2023 Madrid Open, and there is one left to go. Of course, Sabalenka captured the women’s singles title yesterday by overcoming the world number one in a three-set battle. She had too much power and courage on the day, and Sabalenka truly deserved to win the match, in my humble opinion. However, all is not over at this 1000-level event for 2023. There is still the men’s singles final to come, and it will take place in the early evening today.

I’m sure you know who is involved already, but let me give you the final instalment of these updates concerning the Madrid Open seeds ahead of this clash.

Men’s Singles Updates – May 7th

Although the odds are very much in favour of the top seed here, there is a bit of information to fuel some excitement surrounding this match. Starting with the head-to-head, it’s fixed at 1-1 at the moment, and Struff has beaten Alcaraz on clay before. This occurred at Roland Garros in 2021, while Alcaraz was still making a name for himself on the ATP Tour. As for their last encounter, Alcaraz beat Struff in five sets at Wimbledon in 2022. 

So they’ve obviously had tight battles in the past, yet Alcaraz is a different player today than he was back then. I’m not saying that Struff has zero chance today – he obviously does, or he wouldn’t have reached the final in the first place. But I do believe that the speed, mental strength, and sheer talent surrounding Alcaraz will pull him through the match. If this happened, the Madrid Open seeds would go according to plan for the men’s singles.

Yet it’s all to play for today, and if Struff brings his A-game, this should be a very entertaining game to watch.

Madrid Open 2023 Seeds – Semi-Final Updates

At the time of writing, we are within the last two days at the 2023 Madrid Open. It’s been a thrilling tournament so far with all kinds of twists and turns. And specifically for the men’s singles, not many people would have picked these two finalists at the beginning of the event. It’s going to be a showdown between Alcaraz and Struff for the title, and Struff has reached this point as a lucky loser. This is nothing shy of incredible really, yet he faces a huge challenge against Carlos Alcaraz in the final. 

As for the women’s singles, the final will be played between the top two seeds. Therefore, the women’s singles has toed the line far more than the men’s singles in terms of the seedings coming true. With that said, since it was only the men’s singles matches that were played yesterday, I will run through those for today’s updates.

Men’s Singles Updates – May 6th

Yesterday played host to two entertaining semi-finals for the men’s singles. First up on the show court, Alcaraz played Coric – a contest involving the number 1 seed against the number 17 seed. Ultimately, it was Alcaraz who produced some breathtaking tennis to beat his opponent by a score of 6-4 6-3. Yet while this might look straightforward on paper, the match was 1 hour and 40 minutes long, mainly because the rallies were so gruelling. So this result put Alcaraz in the finals of the Madrid Open, and he now has a very realistic shot of defending his title.

The other semi-final was very different indeed. There were no Mutua Madrid Open seeds involved here – just a qualifier against a lucky loser. This gave the match some added spice, in my opinion, yet it was Struff who emerged victorious. He beat Karatsev 6-4 in the third for a spot in the final on Sunday.

Mutua Madrid Open Seeds – Quarter-Final/Semi-Final Updates

Have you been tracking the Madrid Open seeds throughout the 2023 event? If so, you’ll be aware that only a few of the Madrid Open favourites have made it to the very end of the tournament. Plenty of top seeds have fallen along the way, yet in the case of the women’s singles, the seedings have gone exactly as planned. As for the men, the seedings have not gone to plan whatsoever, with the exception of one rather special talent. 

Madrid Open 2023 Seeds

Let me share what’s occurred concerning the Madrid Open seeds over the last 24 hours.

Men’s Singles Updates – May 5th

There were just two matches played in the men’s singles yesterday. These were quarter-final matches in the bottom half of the draw. However, of the four men involved in the games, only one of them was a seed in the Madrid Open. This man was Stefanos Tsitsipas, the 4th seed, yet he lost in three sets to the German, Jan-Lennard Struff. Of course, this was a surprise result, especially with Struff getting in as a lucky loser to the main draw. 

As for the other match, it was an unseeded player against a qualifier – Zhang vs Karatsev. Zhang has enjoyed an unbelievable tournament, yet this was a step too far, and he lost to Karatsev in straight sets. Therefore, the semi-final in the bottom half will be Karatsev vs Struff, and it’s on the schedule for later today.

Women’s Singles Updates – May 5th

Regarding the Madrid Open 2023 seeds for the women’s singles, things have gone exactly as expected. Both of the top two seeds secured a win in the semi-finals yesterday (May 4th). So we will witness a final that will be contested between Swiatek and Sabalenka – the number 1 and 2 seeds. These two played in the final of the tournament in Stuttgart just a couple of weeks back, and it was a tight match. 

So many are understandably excited about this match, which is scheduled for May 6th.

Quarter-Final Updates – Madrid Open 2023 Seeds

Since we are officially at the quarter-final stage in both singles events, we really are reaching crunch time in the Madrid Open. As for the matches from yesterday, there were 4x quarter-final matches contested. This involved two quarter-final games in the top half of the men’s singles competition, and two in the bottom half for the women’s singles. But despite the fact that both competitions have reached the quarter-final stage, they are shaping up quite differently. 

Of course, you’re no doubt wondering what all of this means for the Madrid Open seeds. So let me run through things for both of the singles competitions as of Thursday, May 4th.

Women’s Singles Updates – May 4th

Of the 8 players involved in the Madrid Open quarter-finals for the women, 7 of them were seeds. This is pretty remarkable really, as clay court tennis can produce a fair few upsets. However, specifically for yesterday, there were four seeds playing. The highest of which included Swiatek (1st seed) and Pegula (3rd seed). Swiatek advanced in style, yet Pegula fell to Kudermetova in a three-set battle. 

This means that it will be Swiatek vs Kudermetova in the semi-finals. And for the bottom half, it’s Sabalenka vs Sakkari – the 2nd seed vs the 9th seed.

Men’s Singles Updates – May 4th

Home favourite, and indeed tournament favourite, Carlos Alcaraz wowed the fans against Khachanov yesterday. He beat the mighty Russian in straight sets to make the semi-finals, recording a big win over the 10th seed. This was followed by the 17th seed, Borna Coric, taking out Daniel Altmaier, who reached the quarters as a lucky loser. Needless to say, Altmaier was living on borrowed time in the Madrid Open, and he has now been taken out.

Madrid Open Seeds – Round Four/Quarter-Final Updates

It’s fair to say that we are getting to the business end of the 2023 Madrid Open. The women’s singles is at the quarters/semis stage, and the men’s singles is at the quarter-final stage. For those who are hoping to catch the matches, two of the men’s quarter-final matches will be played today, as will the remaining quarter-final games for the women’s singles. So we are in for yet another day of high-quality tennis today.

Khachanov Madrid Open Seeds

However, before these matches begin, I wish to give the most recent update on the remaining Mutua Madrid Open seeds for both events.

Men’s Singles Updates – May 3rd

All of the 4th round games in the men’s singles were played yesterday. This means that every single one of the top seeds was in action, but they didn’t all make it through. Here are the players who went out of the Madrid Open on Tuesday, May 2nd:

  • Zverev – 13th seed
  • Rublev – 4th seed
  • Fritz – 8th seed
  • Medvedev – 2nd seed

To give you the rundown on what happened to these seeds, Medvedev lost out to Karatsev – a qualifier. Fritz lost to Zhang, who is having a simply unbelievable tournament. As for the others, Zverev and Rublev were taken out by Alcaraz and Khachanov, respectively.

Women’s Singles Updates – May 3rd

The women’s singles had fewer matches than the men’s singles yesterday. Then again, they are one step ahead, as has been the case for the entire tournament so far. To be specific, just two quarter-final matches were played on May 2nd, and it was Sakkari as well as Sabalenka who progressed to the semis. 

However, Sabalenka took out Sherif, who wasn’t a seeded player. Whereas Sakkari made it past the 31st seed, Begu, who has enjoyed a great run in this tournament.

Round Three/Four Updates – Madrid Open 2023 Seeds

On Monday, May 1st, there was plenty of top-level tennis played in the Madrid Open. For the women’s singles, since this event reached the 4th round stage, the top seeds have started to play against one another. As for the men’s singles, it was purely the bottom half of the draw that was played yesterday, and these were all round 3 matches. 

Of course, this means that the men’s singles has now reached the 4th round stage in both halves. So the tournament is really starting to heat up. And as the case was for the women’s singles yesterday, all of the men’s 4th round matches will be played today (May 2nd). Additionally, the first two quarter-finals will be played in the women’s singles event too. 

As for the updates on the Madrid Open seeds, here’s what you may have missed over the last 24 hours.

Men’s Singles Updates – May 2nd

As referenced above, only the bottom half of the men’s singles was played yesterday. This meant that top seeds such as Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Fritz, Norrie, de Minaur, and others were in action. And since this is the stage at which seeds will start competing against each other, inevitably, some seeds went out yesterday. Here are the names of the guys who lost in Madrid yesterday:

  • De Minaur – 16th seed
  • Norrie – 11th seed
  • Tiafoe – 9th seed
  • Baez – 25th seed

Of course, the shocker here is Cam Norrie losing to Zhang. 

Women’s Singles Update – May 2nd

It was an exciting day for the women yesterday, as all of the players were in action in the 4th round. However, it wasn’t such an exciting day for the following players as they crashed out of the draw:

  • Krejcikova – 11th seed
  • Kasatkina – 8th seed
  • Samsonova – 14th seed
  • Badosa – 26th seed

Clearly, some big names made an exit yesterday, and the quarter-finals are now officially set.

Round Three Updates – Madrid Open Seeds

Yet another fantastic day of tennis occurred at the Madrid Open yesterday. Sticking with the planned schedule, plenty of round three games were completed for the men’s and women’s singles. Of course, at this stage in the event, all of the highest seeds are playing – well, the ones that are left in the tournament that is! And as the rounds keep progressing, some will continue their march toward the title, while some will fall.

Anyway, following the matches played on Sunday, April 30th, I’ve got the key updates on the top Madrid Open seeds to share with you.

Women’s Singles Updates – May 1st

It was actually a pretty successful day yesterday for the highest seeds in the women’s singles event. The top seed, Iga Swiatek, made it through in style by taking out Pera in straight sets. At the same time, Kasatkina, Kudermetova, Trevisan, Pegula, and Alexandrova progressed through to the 4th round. This will kick off tomorrow for the top half of the draw. However, there were a few casualties as far as the top seeds are concerned, as noted here:

  • Potapova – 21st seed
  • Bouzkova – 29th seed
  • Zheng – 22nd seed

Interestingly, the seeds for the women’s event largely went as planned.

Men’s Singles Updates – May 1st

A number of the highest Madrid Open seeds in the men’s singles kept their campaign alive yesterday. Alcaraz, the number one seed, stormed past Dimitrov in straight sets. Rublev took out Nishioka, and Zverev absolutely demolished Grenier, the French qualifier. However, in similar fashion to the women’s event, there were a few surprise losses. Here are the main seeds who exited the tournament yesterday:

  • Bautista Agut – 20th seed
  • Rune – 6th seed
  • Kurkacz – 12th seed

Without question, the biggest shock was Holger Rune going out to Davidovich Fokina. 

Madrid Open 2023 Seeds – Round Two/Three Updates

Following the completion of a whole range of matches on Saturday, April 29th, we’ve got some big news regarding Madrid Open seeds. This is true in both the men’s singles, as well as the women’s singles. For clarity, the bottom half of the women’s singles and men’s singles draws were played yesterday. And this will be followed by the top half of both draws filling the Madrid Open schedule today.

2023 Madrid Open Seeds

Anyway, since we can’t predict the future, let’s focus on what’s occurred over the last 24 hours at the Madrid Open. Let me give you the biggest news regarding the seeds at this tournament and what this means for the draw right now.

Men’s Singles Updates – April 30th

In terms of the top seeds who were in action yesterday, names like Tsitsipas, Medvedev, Auger-Aliassime, Evans, Tiafoe, Baez, and more headlined the show. However, not all of these guys made it through to the third round. For the top seeds who have fallen at this stage in the tournament, please see the list below:

  • Auger-Aliassime – 7th seed
  • Evans – 19th seed
  • Paul – 14th seed
  • Shapovalov – 21st seed

The biggest news here is the 7th seed, Auger-Aliassime, losing his opening match. He lost to the in-form Lajovic, and this opens up this particular section of the draw massively.

Women’s Singles Updates – April 30th

Headlining the women’s singles yesterday, names like Sabalenka, Garcia, Gauff, and Sakkari put on a show as the highest seeds. But just like the men’s singles, it wasn’t a great day for a few of the biggest names in the draw. Specifically, the following seeds crashed out of the Madrid Open in the third round:

  • Garcia – 5th seed
  • Gauff – 6th seed
  • Ostapenko – 19th seed
  • Linette – 17th seed

As you can see, the loss of two top seeds yesterday is major, and the women’s singles is developing into a very intriguing event.

Mutua Madrid Open Seeds – Round Two

It’s been a pretty wild 24-hour period in the Madrid Open. As you may already know, some of the main favourites played their opening games yesterday (Friday, April 28th). It was a strong day for some, while it was a rather disappointing day for others. So in case you missed the top seeds in action, let me share the key updates that you need to know following round two.

Men’s Singles – Top Madrid Open Seeds

I’ll start by talking about the guys who made it through yesterday. Top seed, Carlos Alcaraz, battled from behind to make it through to the third round. The same was true for Zverev, who fought late into the night to beat his Spanish opponent in three sets. Adding to that, Rublev, Rune, Hurkacz, Coric, Khachanov, and several others made it.

But for other guys, round two was the end of the road. Here are the highest seeds that went out yesterday:

  • Korda – 22nd seed
  • Musetti – 15th seed
  • Ruud – 3rd seed

The biggest shock here is obviously the loss of Casper Ruud, which opens the men’s draw up massively.

Women’s Singles – Madrid Open 2023 Seeds

In the women’s singles, it was business as usual for many of the top seeds. Specifically, players including Swiatek, Pegula, Kasatkina, Kudermetova, Alexandrova, Krejcikova, and Martic all made it through. However, some big names went out yesterday too, as shown here:

  • Azarenka – 15th seed
  • Rybakina – 7th seed
  • Teichmann – 25th seed

Madrid Open Seeds – Opening Games

The first rounds of the Madrid Open have been completed for both the men’s and women’s singles. Yet only the bottom half of the women’s draw has seen the seeded players take to the court so far, which would be the 2nd round. And for those who missed it, it’s already been a very interesting event to tune in to so far. 

Anyway, right here we are all about the Mutua Madrid Open seeds, since my objective here is to track them and share updates with you all. So let me dive right into things.

Madrid Open Seeds Updates – Round Two

As referenced above, only the women’s seeds have competed up to this point. The remaining seeds will be playing today, and I shall be providing updates once the results roll in. This is also true for the men’s singles too, so stay tuned! But specifically, for the women’s seeds who played on Thursday, April 27th, let me share what’s occurred so far.

13th Seed: Haddad Maia – Out

The 13th-seeded Brazilian, Haddad Maia, was one of the highest Madrid Open seeds to tumble out of the draw at the first hurdle. She was taken out by Andreeva, 7-6 6-3, who received a wildcard entry into the tournament this year. 

10th Seed: Kvitova – Out

Believe it or not, Petra Kvitova is the most successful female player in this particular tournament. As showcased in our Madrid Open preview, Kvitova has won this tournament three times. So the fact that she has fallen in her opening round to Niemeier is a big shock. This has already blown open this section of the draw.

20th Seed: Kevic – Out

Kevic is the third and final player who is one of the Mutua Madrid Open seeds that has succumbed in round one. This isn’t as big a shock as the previous two results, but it’s still noteworthy. She lost to Masarova, who gained entry as a Spanish wildcard. Masarova will now face Sakkari in round three.

Mutua Madrid Open Seeds 2023

The draw for the 2023 Madrid Open was completed just a few days ago. Because of that, we know exactly who the Mutua Madrid Open seeds are for both events. And for those who are interested, you can check out the Madrid Open odds for these top contenders throughout the tournament. Of course, the odds will chop and change with each progressive round. So as we move deeper into the event, these will inevitably change to some extent.

But back to the matter at hand now – the Madrid Open seeds are locked and loaded for the 2023 tournament. We know full well who the top seeds are and where they are placed in the draw. The event promises to be a blockbuster and to catch the action, just be sure to check out our breakdown of Madrid Open TV live streaming options so you won’t miss a match.

Madrid Open seeds

Anyway, you’re here to find out about the top seeds for both the men’s and women’s singles no doubt. So let me run through the top contenders right now.

Top Madrid Open Seeds for the Men’s Singles

The men’s draw is stacked with quality players, despite the absences of guys like Djokovic, Nadal, Sinner, and Berrettini. However, being seeded is one thing, but whether that player has a realistic shot at the title is another. That’s why I’d like to give you a breakdown for each of the top five seeds for the men’s singles right now.

Carlos Alcaraz – Seed 1

Alcaraz is my pick to win the Madrid Open. He is just too agile, strong, and mentally tough to justify any other outcome, in my opinion. At the same time, he won the Barcelona Open last week without losing a set. So he’s obviously ready to come and challenge for this Masters event, although he doesn’t have the easiest draw.

Daniil Medvedev – Seed 2

Medvedev comes into the Madrid Open as the second seed, which doesn’t really reflect his chances in the tournament. Bear in mind that the Madrid Open 2023 seeds are done based on ranking as the sole factor. So Medvedev is only seeded 2nd because he is ranked 3 in the world right now. But as we all know, he’s not a huge fan of the dirt.

Casper Ruud – Seed 3

Casper Ruud has had a disappointing season so far. However, he is still ranked highly enough to be seeded 3 at the Madrid Open. In my opinion, if Ruud finds his A-game, he does have a shot at the title. After all, he made the final of the French Open last year, and he is definitely one of the best players on clay when he’s on his day.

Stefanos Tsitsipas – Seed 4

Tsitsipas has also been a finalist at Roland Garros in the past, and he’s won several clay court titles in his career. Furthermore, following a rough patch in recent months, he finally picked it up in Barcelona last week – losing to Alcaraz in the final. Should the Greek keep the momentum going, however, he could be a title contender.

Andrey Rublev – Seed 5

Rublev is the only guy on this list who has captured a clay court Masters 1000 title in 2023. Then again, there has only been one of them. Nevertheless, Rublev is playing great tennis, and he deserves to be one of the leading Madrid Open seeds for 2023. He could face Alcaraz in the quarters, however, which is a tough draw.

Top Madrid Open 2023 Seeds for the Women’s Singles

The 2023 Madrid Open is looking very strong indeed for the women’s singles. And without wasting any time, let’s look at the top seeds and what this means for their chances.

Iga Swiatek – Seed 1

Swiatek is the best player in the world right now, no doubt about it. She always hits her stride during the clay court swing too, as proven by her recent title in Stuttgart. With that said, she has a possible clash with Rybakina in the quarters, and she’s been a tricky opponent for Swiatek this season.

Aryna Sabalenka – Seed 2

Besides Swiatek, I’d say that Sabalenka is in the best form out of everyone on the WTA Tour. As you may remember, she won her first slam in January at the Aussie Open. However, she’s only played one clay court tournament prior to Madrid, reaching the finals before losing to Swiatek.

Jessica Pegula – Seed 3

Pegula has a big game, although generally speaking, this doesn’t always suit the clay courts all that well. Regardless, Pegula is one of the top Madrid Open seeds this time around. If she is to win the tournament, however, she’ll need to take down Swiatek in the semi-finals, most likely.

Caroline Garcia – Seed 5

I’ve skipped seed 4 because this was awarded to Ons Jabeur, who withdrew after the draw was made. This means that the next seed in line is Caroline Garcia. Her form has been up and down this season, but she can play well on the clay. So we will have to watch her matches closely this year.

Coco Gauff – Seed 6

Finally, it’s Coco Gauff who swoops in as the last of the Mutua Madrid Open seeds – number 6, to be precise. Gauff is an unlikely winner given her form in 2023, in my opinion. But she has been a French Open finalist, so we can’t count her out!
