Earlier on Thursday, world number two Aryna Sabalenka brushed past Maria Sakkari 6-4 6-1.

Świątek went to Spain fresh from defending her title in Stuttgart.

This is her second appearance in Madrid. Two years ago, she succumbed to then-world-ranking leader Ashleigh Barty 5:7, 4:6 in the third round. Last season, she missed the Spanish capital due to a shoulder injury.
