Welcome to the 2010 Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open 2010. May the best player win. Enjoy. ;)

Play will begin after Rome tournament is completed.

Will the seeds play their role and put on a show in the semis? Or will a new player come through victorious?
Update -*- May 4, 2010 -*-

Some of the quaterfinal action has been well, not very much action packed. The number one seed was dispatched in a lagging one set tiebreak and retired, handing over the win to Watson.
The number two seed has withdrawn from the match against fellow Russian Elena Dementieva, giving Demetieva her first semifinal of the clay court season.

Update #2 -*- May 4, 2010 -*-

After hoping for some nice results and electric matches, the tournament has seemed to dulled to nothing. Hingis withdrew from the tournament, granting Venus the semifinal place. Maybe there was too much rain, the players got tired of Meanwhile one semifinal has been finalized and is between Heather Watson and Venus Williams, a rematch of the Rome semifinal. Venus toughed out a win there in three tight sets with the scoreline 4-6 7-6 6-4. Will the tables turn? Who would be the first into the final?

On the other hand one quarterfinal has yet to be completed. With Dementieva already through to the semis, who will be the lucky opponent: Sabine Lisicki or the lone seed Jelena Jankovic? Will there be a final featuring unseeded players??? Drama forever lasts at the Madrid Open 2010 on the Tennisfourm Top Spin 3 Tour.

Update #3 -*- May 6, 2010 -*-

Finally the last semifinalist has been determined. Sabine Lisicki defeated Jelena Jankovic in two tight sets 7-5 7-5. Based on comments by the players themselves, it was a good match. It's wonderful to see that the last seed in the tournament didn't go down without a fight. Jelena missed a break point opportunity down 5-6 but up 40-30 in the twelfth game of the set. ----Thanks for getting the match played guys :yeah:

Since the semifinals are filled with unseeded players, this is the second time since Rome that The finals will be played without a seeded player. Good Luck to the title seeking semifinalists!

Update #4 -*- May 7, 2010 -*-

Semifinal action lasted over a span of two days. The first semifinal resulted in Sabine Lisicki taking down Elena Demetieva in straight sets. Based on player comments it was an enjoyable match, accompanied by fun rallies and nice returns. Lisicki def. Dementieva 6-3 6-4.

The second semifinal was a rematch of the Rome semifinal - Heather Watson versus Venus Williams. It proved to be a tall order based on the results in Rome and Venus executed a game plan, being more aggressive and it paid off. Watson played an aggressive style as well, but it wasn't a match for Venus' who kept ending rallies in dominant fashion. The second set, Williams looked to be in cruise control moving ahead 3-love and looking to go up 4-love before getting broken. From there both players began holding serve and one break was all that was needed for Williams to serve out the match. Williams def. Watson 7-6(3) 6-4.

Thus the final at the Madrid Open 2010 is between Sabine Lisicki and Venus Williams. Who will earn their first title?

Update #5 -*- May 8, 2010 -*-

Well the drama continues and one semifinal was actually played on the wrong court. Thus the match will be replayed, the previous results have been erased and the draw re-done. So the seminfinal between Elena Dementieva and Sabine Lisicki will be played once again. Good Luck Guys;) Maybe the results will be different???

Update #6 -*- May 10, 2010 -*-

Well in the end, Sabine Lisicki was granted the walkover into the final by opponent Elena Demetieva.

So it is a rematch in a sense - Mikey. vs dmg100 - of the Paris Indoors match earlier this year. Both have new players searching for a title. This is Mikey's second final of the year and dmg100's third. WWW???

Update #7 -*- May 11, 2010 -*-

Sabine Lisicki defeated Venus Williams in a serving frenzy in two tiebreaks.

Re: Tier II - Mutua Madrileña Madrid Open 2010

Can you not delay this tournament until after the other one, i dont think we have enough players to have two running at the same time.

Re: Tier II - Mutua Madrileña Madrid Open 2010

Anyone who hasn't signed up for this tournament and wants to play, must sign up quickly. This tournament's sign up period will end next week of this day. Play starts the last week of this month and will most likely last for two weeks depending on how quickly matches are finished.

I've sent PM's to those who haven't signed up for any of the upcoming tournaments. If any of those players want to sign up for this tournament, the allotted entries will be increased.


Marco...i almost passed u up buddy.
