The Mutua Madrid Open is where magic happens every year - not just on the court, but off of it too.
Anabel Medina Garrigues, Dominika Cibulkova and ATP World Tour stars with Madrid Mayor Ajna Botella.
The draw ceremony took place on Friday, and Simona Halep and María-Teresa Torró-Flor were both there.
Caroline Wozniacki, a former finalist at the Mutua Madrid Open, met fans at an autograph session.
Also over the weekend, two-time defending champion Serena Williams met the press at All Access Hour.
Williams also took part in a charity event co-hosted by Rafael Nadal and Real Madrid's Iker Casillas.
Another big WTA star taking part in the event was Agnieszka Radwanska - pictured over on the left.
The players entertained the crowd with soccer and volleyball skills, dancing and - of course - tennis.
Money raised from the event went to the Rafa Nadal Foundation and the Iker Casillas Foundation.
Away from center court, Simona Halep and Grigor Dimitrov held a tennis clinic for Estrella Damm.
Estrella Damm is one of the sponsors for the Mutua Madrid Open, which has been running since 2009.
Halep and Dimitrov are two of the brightest rising stars in the game - and both born in 1991.
