Carlos Alcaraz at the 2022 Madrid Open.
The 2022 Madrid Open is now in its closing stages. The women’s singles and doubles champions are set to be crowned on Saturday, while the men will battle it out for a spot in the final.
Ons Jabeur and Jessica Pegula’s rise to the top of the game has been a story of perseverance. Both have been very consistent over the past two years. Now, after a bunch of solid results, they’re set to square off for the biggest title of their careers so far.
On the men’s side, the first semifinal will feature a clash between two generations. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has achieved the status of a legend with his achievements. He will lock horns with the future of the sport in the form of teen phenom Carlos Alcaraz, who defeated his idol Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals to get to this stage.
The other semifinal is yet to be locked in. Top-10 players Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev, Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime are in the running for the remaining two semifinal spots.
