Simona Halep made herself the queen of the Mutua Madrid Open, having won the title in the Spanish capital for the second year in a row and having become the only player in the tournament history to reach the final three times. In the 2017 final, the Romanian overcame France’s Kristina Mladenovic, who was a superb opponent despite struggling with a back injury. Our photographer Jimmie48 was at the entertaining final, capping a busy week and a half in Madrid. Of course, we also have the photos from the doubles final, in which Yung-Jan Chan and Martina Hingis defeated Timea Babos and Andrea Hlavackova 6-4 6-3.
