“This tournament takes place within the framework of the 110th anniversary of the club, we did not want it to go unnoticed, and that is why many activities have been carried out. The main sport is this very important tournament, and that logically we will enjoy the weekend” he began by pointing out Guillermo Aranda director of the prestigious institution located on the Santa Fe waterfront.
Captain General Fernando Vallini said that “after a very complicated year for everyone, we have the possibility and the fortune of being able to develop this professional tournament, which is possible thanks to the support of the provincial government, the Municipality of Santa Fe , and many private companies in our city. It was decided to join forces and make this competition contest. Thanks to that we got in contact with Lucho Coudannes to take care of the sports organization of the tournament, because he is the right person for it “.
“We want to invite all the citizens of Santa Fe and the area of influence to come and observe a very important tournament, which will have very good players and high-level matches, which will be ranked with players with ATP points and foreigners, In both men and women. We would like people to come, not only those who are passionate about tennis, but also those who pass by the waterfront and see what is being played, can enter, which is a club that has a privileged location. “highlighted the leader of the Santa Fe entity.
The return of tournaments in the region
Luis Coudannes expressed that “many players who are going to come are juniors, and this tournament is part of the transition between amateurism and professionalism. There are several players who really make a living from tennis, they are not more than 18 years old, but they dedicate a lot of time to it. , and they intend to continue being players. In the last two years tennis had a low offer of tournaments, globally and in our country as well. A little over a month ago we were able to resume with a tournament in Esperanza with 41 players, then I had asked for two more dates, the third tournament was going to be played next week in San Carlos Centro, but the AAT could just make three tournaments, and one starts on Sunday, and it couldn’t be done, so it was postponed to March. “
In the same sense, he explained that “this tournament has the particularity that it is one of the two that carries out a competition in the same week with a male and a female team. The previous one was in August in Tucumán, with fewer players, and fewer prizes, and really the expectation to have this tournament, and from the AAT to be a mixed tournament was important, because there are not usually many. In the interior, tournaments like this are needed, with many players “.
The head of the Tennis Series Group, who is in charge of the event, pointed out that “we are going to start on Friday with the first round matches, which are many, a total of 25; Gabriel Hidalgo and Juan Ignacio Alcalde have to highlight them because They are players who have ATP rankings. Saturday will be played during the morning and afternoon, and on Sunday, in the morning will be the semifinals, and then in the afternoon the turn of the two finals. It should be noted that the schedule of the final is not due to a question of the weather, because the International Federation establishes that it must be run on time if it is very hot. It will be a very good tournament, for which entry is free. “
