Innovative doubles trial kicks off in Madrid

Changes being trialled at the 2024 Mutua Madrid Open include:

  • More Singles vs Doubles action. The 32-team draw will feature up to 16 slots reserved for teams entering via their singles ranking, creating an unprecedented number of matchups between the world's top doubles and singles players, and compelling new narratives for fans.
  • Streamlined schedule over five days (Tuesday to Saturday) during Week Two of the tournament, providing a simpler and sharper schedule for fans and players.
  • Reduced shot clock to accelerate the pace of play and minimise downtime during matches. Time between points will be reduced to 15 seconds following rallies shorter than four shots (four or more shots = 25 seconds).
  • Quicker changeovers with fewer sit-downs to accelerate the pace of play.
  • Free fan movement in the arena during play, adding convenience to the on-site experience.
