MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Madrid – Friday, April 28, 2023 final results

First trip to Madrid for #Shauger was to win the junior Davis Cup, back in 2015. They team up again Friday.

The thing about these new, expanded 96 draws is that Félix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov have basically been in Madrid all week. And they haven’t even played singles yet.

But they did finally get on court Friday, in doubles against the Colombia team of Juan Sebastian Cabal and (Montreal-born) Robert Farah. And they got the job done in two sets.

Also to look out for: No. 1 seed Carlos Alcaraz, Rublev vs Wawrinka – and the long-awaited return to action for American Sebastian Korda, which wasn’t successful but was competitive.

(Madrid is six hours ahead of EDT).
