The “home” tournament of MEF Tennis Events reached its 12th edition. Over the years, the tournament has been the springboard for athletes like David Goffin, Grigor Dimitrov, Marcel Granollers, Kevin Anderson, Benoit Paire, Carlos Berlocq and the unforgettable Federico Luzzi. It also gave an opportunity to see iconic figures such as Thomas Muster, ex n. 1 of the world class 1987, and Gaston Gaudio, winner of Roland Garros in 2004 and ex n. 5 of the world.
The 2017 edition has seen the crowning of another great name in tennis: Federico Delbonis, the second Argentinean to put his signature in the golden book of the tournament, following the two consecutive victories of Carlos Berlocq in 2010 and 2011 .
Over the last 11 years, the tournament has won a leading position on the international scene: “Year after year this tournament – Sergio Palmieri has commented – is growing in terms of both quality of the players and of its organization. Today it is one of the most important stages in Italy. Great merit goes to Marcello Marchesini and Francesco Cancellotti for the skill and passion lavished over these years.”
