20th December 2019
The quarterfinalist at Wimbledon earlier this year: “I’m very happy to be part of such a special tournament in Spain”
The Mallorca Championships, which has just released its ticket sales this week, continues to confirm great talent for its first edition to be played next year. If the first player to officially confirm his participation was the current Queen’s champion, Feliciano López, now it is his landsmate Fernando Verdasco who has confirmed that he will play in Mallorca from the 20th to the 27th of June.
“Mallorca deserved to have an event like this again. They have a great tradition in tennis and great fans”, Verdasco said in relation to the return of an ATP tournament to the island after 18 years of absence. And he continued: “I am sure it will be a very special event. There has never been an ATP tournament in Spain on grass. And if you add to this that it will take place in Mallorca, it was clear that I could not miss it”.
Also, from today on, the Mallorca Championships has kicked off the ticket sales with great discounts and promotions throughout Christmas. With a second top player confirmed to its field, all those fans who want to experience an exciting grass court tennis week, for the first time ever in Spain, can already buy their tickets through the official tournament website and Entradas.com, official ticketing partner of this ATP250 event.
Regarding Verdasco, the Spanish player has finished this season ranked 49th in the ATP Tour and for the sixteenth consecutive season has managed to finish in the Top50. It should be noted that in these sixteen seasons he has finished as Top10 in two of them (2009 and 2010). An achievement available to very few active tennis players today. In addition, he is the second ranked active player with the most consecutive Grand Slam Main Draw appearances with 66, only behind, precisely, Feliciano López who holds the record with 71.
Verdasco has won 7 individual titles throughout his career, including the ATP 500 Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell in 2010. In doubles, alongside the Spaniard David Marrero he has won 8 double titles, being the ATP World Tour Finals as the biggest success for the Spanish team. The tennis player born in Madrid has also been decisive in the achievement of 3 Davis Cup titles for Spain.
