Madrid Open is a combined men’s and women’s tennis tournament which is held at Caja Mágica, Madrid, Spain. It is considered to be the second most important clay court tournament in tennis. The Madrid Open is a part of both ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and WTA’s Premier Mandatory category.
The blue court was replaced by the traditional red clay court in 2009. In a controversial decision, the 2012 edition of the Madrid Open was played in blue clay court. The only player who won the title on 3 different surfaces is Roger Federer – Hard courts (2006), Red clay (2009), and Blue clay (2012).
