BARCELONA OPEN

- the oldest tennis championship in Spain. The first game was played in 1899.   


The absolute record holder by the number of titles is R. Nadal - 11 times he was honored by a native of Manacor. Rafael's participation in the tournament, there is no doubt about it. Perhaps - this is a tribute to his uncle, Miguel Angel - who played for the local football club and spent 8 seasons in blue-pomegranate uniform.  

The regulars of the Catalan courts - ex-advertising face of "Calvin Klein" Fernando Verdasco, David Ferrer, Japanese Kei Nikishori, Austrian Dominique Tim, in other words, the leading dirt representatives of the men's ATP tour. There's someone to keep an eye on.  

Winning the championship is estimated at 500 points, and the budget is $2,700,000. But to get the check, the triumphant has to go through the water and dive into the pool for the company of volunteers serving the event. Interesting Challenge invented by the organizers.  

You can watch the holiday of life in late April, from 17 to 28.04.
