Monday at the Mutua Madrid Open was all about second-round action and the celebration of Daria Kasatkina’s 21st birthday. Our Jimmie48 is bringing us photos of all the most important moments from the Spanish tournament at the start of the week!
We have photos of fierce and determined Maria Sharapova practicing in the morning and pics of her second-round triumph over Irina-Camelia Begu. Caroline Wozniacki battled past Ashleigh Barty to reach the third round, Julia Goerges beat Lara Arruabarrena in three sets, while Caroline Garcia got past Petra Martic. In a match that ended after midnight, Karolina Pliskova made the third round for the first time by defeating Victoria Azarenka.
Birthday girl Daria Kasatkina was surprised with a tennis cake and she enjoyed some paddle tennis time in the morning.
