  • There are few forums or places where information can be found for tennis championships, therefore, I will take advantage of this platform to offer some feedback based on my previous experience. I think having traveled to 6 tournaments in different places in the world give me a perspective that can be very useful to those who travel to Mutua Madrid. Let's go on the side. As for how to get there, for those who do not want or cannot go by car, the access that I used was by metro, line 3 direction Villaverde Alto, arriving at San Fermin Orcasur metro station and is clearly signposted where you should go. Anyway, you just have to follow most people. You walk about ten minutes and you access the facilities. Arriving at the place is formed a huge line to be able to enter so my recommendation is to arrive early. They check everything, because you can't enter with food or bottles of water. They say it's forbidden to go in with bags, which is a lie, I was wearing a small bag and I had no problem with that. Other is to say that the food in is of poor quality, and expensive, but if you're going to be there all day, well, there's nothing left to pay for that food and pay for water (or beer). I read a lot of complaints about the lines, but you have to know when to buy. It's best to get off the courts at some turn of the side, and there are no rows there, you can buy whatever you want without any waiting, you take a minute, and then you come back to your door to wait for the next side change, enter, and you lose only 2 games of the match. Obviously if you're going to go buy food and water before a big game, then get ready for the line, but don't complain. As for the tickets, in my particular case I bought a pass for the whole week on the central court (800 euros), which gave you access to the side courts, except for the Arantxa Sanchez court, which although you have access on Mondays and Fridays; on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays you need to buy a separate ticket, exclusive for this court that costs around 25 euros (which I bought and it was the biggest hit). I want to stop a little here. If you're a tennis fan, and you want to watch good matches and at a good distance DO NOT buy tickets to the center court (I bought it because I'm a Roger Federer fan and I wanted to see him play on clay before he retires, and because well, seeing Rafa Nadal is also a show acle). My advice is that you only buy tickets for "walk" on Monday (which allows you to enter the Arantxa Sanchez), and on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only the ticket for the Arantxa Sanchez, which allows you to enter that court and all the others excluding the court cen tral. Why I say this: the central court is half covered by boxes, which are priceless, and which, apparently, are occupied by people who are going to take pictures, to drink beer, to do social life (it's okay, there they are), but who mostly tennis don't have the most minimal idea. So, you're way up, and while the view is good, it's not comparable to what you can get on the side courts. In my particular case, I saw in the front row, glued to the court, tremendous matches, and players like Wawrinka, Fognini, Thiem, Kachanov, Zverev, Cilic, Tiafoe, Monfils, Herbert, Goffin, Edmund, Pouille, Coric, Nishikori, Del Potro, Tsitsipas. For me, this is better than seeing Nadal or Federer or Djokovic 30 or more metres away as is the case at headquarters. Also, if you want to see these last 3 up close, you can go and watch them train, and there you have them 5 meters. Necessarily wear hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen, this is an outdoor show, it is evident that you will be exposed to the sun and pretend otherwise is not to understand anything about outdoor tennis. On the exit there are no problems, you walk to the metro and you return to your hotel. Overall it is an excellent tournament, where you can see very closely the best tennis players in the world, with the great defect already expressed from the central court. For me, as a tennis fan, and that at least once a year I try to travel to a tournament, this is one I would definitely go to again.

  • I was in the final of 2018 and the truth is that it is all very well organized. it is important to be mentally minded about paying for parking or going public transport.
