Record Book 2011
Only one member of the Big 4 was yet to win in Madrid. That would change in 2011. In one of the best years of his career, possibly only second to 2015, Novak Djokovic put his name on the trophy by beating Rafael Nadal in the final. The Serb, who saw off other Spaniards on his road to the final (Guillermo García-López and David Ferrer), beat the Mallorcan in the decider to win his first tournament in the Spanish capital. In the women’s competition, Petra Kvitova celebrated victory after defeating Victoria Azarenka in a thrilling final that catapulted her to a great season.
