As part of the 2022 Mutua Madrid Open, Hubert Hurkacz was seeded 12th and went into the first quarter. The citizen of Wroclaw will have to wait a while for the Prime Minister to come. The tennis player will be one of the qualifying qualifiers in two stages, which will be held in the Spanish capital on Saturday and Sunday.

“Hubi” will not have an easy job in Madrid. Alejandro Davidovich Fokina or Lloyd Harris of South Africa might already stand in his way in the second round. The Spaniard showed a very good team in Monte Carlo, reaching the final. If our tennis player wins two matches, he will be able to play among others with the Norwegian Casper Ruud and the Spaniard Roberto Bautista.

Hurkacz was in the first quarter, with Novak Djokovic, the ATP ranking leader, ranked highest. The Serbian recently reached the final of the ATP 250 competition in Belgrade, but his performance still leaves much to be desired. At the opening of the competition in Madrid, his opponent will be French Gael Monfils or Spaniard Carlos Jimeno Valero, who will participate for the first time in the Tour. An interesting couple – Andy Murray and Dominic Thiem – is located a little lower. The winner may be a contender for Canadian Denis Shapovalov.

For the Spaniards, the highlight of the week will be Rafael Nadal’s return to the Tour. After the Indian Wells final, the 21-time Grand Slam champion sustained a rib injury and was knocked out by several tournaments. In Madrid, he was ranked third by number and ended up in the second quarter. If all goes well, Nadal could face a successful match with fellow compatriot Carlos Alcaraz in the quarter-finals.

Alexander Zverev, who is defending the title, is in the lower half. The German was ranked number two. In his quarter, among others, Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime and Italian Jank Sener. The Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas and the Russian Andrey Rublev scored slightly higher (third quarter).

The struggle will begin in Madrid next Sunday. The winner will receive 1,000 ATP rating points and a check for €1.041 million.
