Carlos Alcaraz will face Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinals of the 2024 Madrid Open.

Former ATP World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz has equalled Rafael Nadal’s record longest winning streak (14) at the Madrid Open.

Before Alcaraz, 22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal had the longest unbeaten streak in the Spanish capital. The King of Clay set the record in 2013–14 when he won the ATP 1000 event two consecutive times.

His streak came to an end In 2015, the Spaniard lost to Andy Murray 6-3, 6-2 in the final of the Madrid Open. However, Carlos Alcaraz is likely to overtake Nadal’s record in the Spanish capital. The two-time Grand Slam champion will be facing seventh seed Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinal of the 2024 Madrid Open.

Carlos Alcaraz defeated Alexander Shevchenko in his opening match of the ATP 1000 event in straight sets. In the next round, he stunned Brazil’s Thiago Seyboth Wild 6-3, 6-3, to secure a spot in the fourth round of the tournament. However, Carlos Alcaraz faced his biggest challenge in the round of 16, where he faced last year’s runner-up, Jan-Lennard Struff.

Alcaraz got a decent start against the German tennis star, as he won the first set 6-3. However, the result of the other two sets came in the tiebreaker. Struff gave the Spaniard tough competition, as he also smashed 10 aces compared to Alcaraz’s four. However, after 2 hours and 50 minutes of intense action, the two-time Madrid Open defending champion won the match 6-3, 6-7 (7-5), 7-6 (7-4).

On the other side, Rafael Nadal suffered a disappointing loss against Jiri Lehecka in straight sets. The 37-year-old enjoyed a decent comeback campaign as he defeated the likes of World No. 11 Alex de Minaur and Pedro Cachin. However, the 22-time Grand Slam champion has stated that he will be travelling to Rome for the Italian Open before making his final decision to play in the 2024 French Open.

Nadal said, “I missed Monte Carlo. But now I want to play Rome. And play well. Give myself a chance to make that happen. Today is an unforgettable day. Saying goodbye to Madrid. But my career keeps going. After Rome I will decide about Roland Garros.”
