Which British players will be competing at the Madrid Open 2024?



Katie Boulter will enter the tournament as Britain’s highest ranked British singles player as the British No.1 prepares to compete in the main draw at the Madrid Open for the first time in her career.

The clay courts are still fairly unfamiliar territory for Boulter but the 27-year-old will arrive in Madrid off the back off a first tour-level win on the clay at the Billie Jean King Cup Qualifiers. Competing in Great Britain's tie against France, Boulter proved she can transfer her form to the clay as she defeated world No.44 Clara Burel in straight sets, providing an excellent confidence booster ahead of Madrid.

Meanwhile, the men’s draw will see the three highest ranked British male tennis players contest the title. Cam Norrie leads the charge against a strong field and will be hoping to build on his tournament-best performance of third round in 2022. The British No.1 has already come close to a trophy on the clay this season, having reached the final four at the Rio Open in February and will be looking to rock the boat in Madrid as he hunts down a second Masters 1000 title of his career.


He’ll be joined by British No.2 Jack Draper who this week recorded his first clay court win of the season at the BMW Open after defeating Vit Lopriva in the opening round. The 22-year-old was forced to withdraw from last year’s tournament in Madrid due to injury but will be gunning to leave his mark on the field this year. Meanwhile, Dan Evans completes the line-up as he goes in pursuit of a first win on the dirt in 2024.


Former champion Neal Skupski is set to make his return to the Madrid Masters and will be eager to find his form on the clay ahead of Roland Garros. Skupski lifted the silverware back in 2022 alongside Wesley Koolhof but will this year join forces with fellow Brit and current doubles world No.4 Joe Salisbury in a bid to become the first all-British duo to lift the title.

They will be joined by Jamie Murray and Lloyd Glasspool who will contest the title alongside Michael Venus and Jean-Julien Rojer respectively.

Past British performances at the Madrid Open

While he’s not set for action this year due to injury, former world No.1 Andy Murray is the only British tennis player to date who has been crowned the Madrid Open men’s singles champion. His first title came in 2008 when the event was played on a hard court, with the Brit recording a 6-4, 7-6(6) victory against Frenchman Gilles Simon to clinch the silverware.


In 2015, six years after the tournament transitioned to a clay surface, Murray went on to dispatch clay-court maestro Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-2 to clinch his second crown at the tournament, before finishing runner-up to Novak Djokovic the following year.

Skupski remains the most recent British victor at the tournament, having engraved his name on the trophy in 2022. The Brit teamed up with Koolhof to defeat Columbian duo Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 6-7,(3), 6-4, (10-5) – marking the first of three Masters 1000 titles they collected that year.
