It will be a stellar third edition for the Senior Masters Cup 2018 in Marbella that will take place on Saturday, the 28th and Sunday, the 29th September.
Once again, Puente Romano & Marbella Club will make Marbella the centre of the world’s tennis.
The high-level tournament will see the Spaniards Carlos Moyá (20 titles), Juan Carlos Ferrero (16 titles), and Albert Costa (12 titles), the Russian Marat Safin (15 titles), the Croatian Goran Ivanisevic (22 titles), the French Sebastian Grosjean (4 titles) and Yannick Noah (23 titles) compete in the exhibition event.
Tennis legends, 3 former world Number One players and 6 former Grand Slam champions will compete for the Senior Masters Cup trophy.
Last year, Carlos Moyá (41) lifted the trophy when he won against the legendary John McEnroe (58) by beating him in two straight sets.
Moyá, who trains world number one Rafael Nadal, was forced to retire seven years ago due to a hip injury. However, the notable age difference gave him an easy win against the American.
Both players proved to be great performers. Although Moyá didn’t want to deploy his greatest arsenal of power, he was surprised more than once by the accurate hits so well known by the American.
Each year, the tournament counts more than 2,000 spectators. Last year, amongst them, were the former international tennis player Manolo Santana, the national basketball coach, Sergio Scariolo, and the international coach Manuel Luis Pellegrini.
All of the figures being able to see the world’s tennis stars in a relaxed atmosphere with the players joking amongst themselves.
“It is incredible to have such a list of players in Marbella again. The Senior Masters Cup has once again made Marbella the centre of world tennis for a few days, and I am sure that we will return to enjoy tennis, the city, its people and its privileged climate. I am very proud that they all want to come back and very happy to have Carlos Moyá, a great friend but at the same time a great player, “said AIbert
