Description

The Mutua Madrileña Madrid Open made its debut in an impressive new stadium in Madrid, the city’s new Magic Box Tennis venue. The Mayor described it as “one of the best sporting facilities in the world which will definitively reinforce Madrid’s status as a great global tennis capital”. Previously held indoors, 2009 marked the first outdoor clay edition of the tournament. The tournament is part of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000, meaning the tournament winner receives the highest possible point value (1000 points) for winning. Needless to say, the points, the competition, and the hefty prize purse are enough to attract the sport's top stars. The ATP World Tour is the male tennis circuit organised by the Association of Tennis Professionals comprising of the best tennis tournaments in the world. It includes the four ultra-prestigious Grand Slam tournaments, the inter-country battles of the Davis Cup, the top ranking the ATP World Tour Masters 1000, the slighter lower tier ATP World Tour 500 series, the lowest ranked ATP World Tour 250 series and, to round off the year and sort out the rankings, the ATP World Tour Finals.
