Day one of the Madrid Open Virtual Pro will be held on Monday, April 27 and will see a string of group games held in both, the men’s and women’s section of the draw.

The first day of the eSports of tennis at Madrid will see some potentially exciting matches (however, how these tennis players go about their business on the gaming console of PS4 is anybody’s guess!).
