The big-serving American, Taylor Fritz, defeated Hubert Hurkacz in the Madrid Masters to secure his spot in the quarterfinals. Fritz emerged victorious in straight sets, achieving this feat for the first time. This win is particularly significant for him, as he narrowly missed out on reaching this stage in 2023 when he was knocked out in the round of 16.

The top-ranked American showed significant improvement on clay last year, winning 11 matches and having his best season on that surface. This year, he seems to be continuing his positive trend. After finishing as the runner-up to local favourite Jan-Lennard Struff in Munich last week, he now has a quarterfinal match at the Madrid Masters, which he has a good chance of winning.

The American has only played in five high-profile events (Masters and Grand Slams) where he hasn’t reached the quarterfinals. With his good run in Madrid, he has reduced this list to four: Rome, Canada (both Toronto and Montreal), Shanghai, and Paris (French Open).

However, Fritz has not consistently played at a top-10 standard in the latter stages of high-profile tournaments. His recent subpar results in such tournaments are one of the major reasons he lost his top-10 status. His career win/loss record in the quarterfinals of Masters and Grand Slam tournaments is currently 3-9 (1-1 on clay).

Francisco Cerundolo has impressed at the Madrid Masters with notable victories over in-form Fabian Marozsan, world number 16 Tommy Paul, and two-time former champion Alexander Zverev. These commendable feats mark a significant turning point in his season and have given him considerable momentum.

Despite securing three consecutive victories as the underdog to reach the quarterfinals of a Masters tournament, Cerundolo’s win/loss record for the season remains in the negative zone, highlighting his significant struggles to secure wins over the past four months. Interestingly, this marks only the second time he has achieved consecutive wins in 2024, with the previous occurrence in Rio de Janeiro in February.

Cerundolo lost the Argentine number one crown to compatriot Sebastian Baez due to his sluggish start to the year. However, securing just one more win in Madrid this week would not only see him reclaim that spot but also propel him into the top 20 in the live rankings.

Cerundolo is a clay court specialist. His best results at the Masters level have come in hardcourt tournaments, such as reaching the semifinals in Miami. On clay, he has only reached the quarterfinals once in a Masters tournament, where he lost in straight sets to Casper Ruud in Rome last year, 6-7, 4-6.
