This Thursday at 13:00 there will be a media event to present the Mutua Madrid Open on the Manolo Santana Central Stadium. Spain’s biggest tennis event will be played out between the 4th and the 13th of May on the brand new blue clay courts of the Caja Mágica.

The media event will be presided over by the Mayor of Madrid, Ana Botella, tournament advisor Ion Tiriac, Mutua Madrileña vicepresident Jaime Motalvo, tournament Director Manolo Santana, and players Fernando Verdasco and Venus Williams.

A series of videos will be displayed on the big screens in the Manolo Santana Centre Stadium and there’ll be a Mutua Madrid Open “family photo” next to the Ion Tiriac trophy, which will go to the winner of the tournament which will be the focus of the attention of the entire tennis world between the 4th and 13th of May. This will be followed by an audience given to the media by Ion Tiriac, Manolo Santana, Fernando Verdasco and Venus Williams in an area set up on the courts specifically for the event.

After Thursday’s event at the Caja Mágica, everything will be in place for the 2012 Mutua Madrid Open – and the battle to decide the king and queen of the blue clay – to begin.
