Alcaraz has won 14 consecutive matches in Madrid. Notably, he’s defeated the likes of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal at this venue. He has never lost a game to a player other than Nadal here, and last time out, Alcaraz outlasted Jan-Lennard Struff — a rematch of last year’s championship match — in a third-set tiebreak. Struff showed incredible resilience in his match, where he came from being a set and a break down to force a decider. He saved three consecutive match points while returning the serve to stay in the match in the third set before eventually losing 3-6, 7-6, 6-7.

In 2023, the former world number one experienced only one defeat in quarterfinal matches, holding a record of 12 wins and one loss. However, his performance has not been up to the mark in 2024, with two quarterfinal losses already recorded, indicating that he has yet to find his form this year. He has never lost consecutive quarterfinal matches in his career, a streak he intends to maintain after his recent loss to Grigor Dimitrov in Miami last month.

Rublev arrived in Spain’s capital on a four-match losing streak, but he has won all six sets he’s played this fortnight. On Tuesday, he spent nearly two hours less on court than Alcaraz, defeating Tallon Griekspoor 6-2, 6-4. Rublev is vying for his first semifinal in Madrid and his first at the Masters 1000 level of 2024. At the ATP Finals less than six months ago, Alcaraz defeated Rublev — in their first-ever meeting — 7-5, 6-2.

He also has a great track record in the quarterfinals of Masters tournaments, despite his struggles at this stage in other high-profile tournaments like Grand Slams. While he hasn’t won any of his 10 Grand Slam quarterfinals, Rublev has an impressive record of seven wins and three losses at the same stage in Masters tournaments. One of his most memorable victories was against Rafael Nadal in Monte Carlo in 2021.
