Madrid: The Magic Box


We arrive in Madrid with plenty to settle as the clay court season heats up. Naomi Osaka’s loss leads to another discussion on surfaces and who really is the favourite heading into the French Open. On the Men’s side, present could meet the future with Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz sharing the same half of the draw. Devang and Simon also discuss Denis Shapovalov’s recent struggles, the WTA’s golden era, and as always, provide their parting shots. All that and more coming up on Open Era!
