Antonio Arenas Mutua News

Dear Tennis Fans,

On behalf of the ATP, I would like to welcome you to the Mutua Madrid Open, one of nine elite ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events on the Tour.

The Mutua Madrid Open has become one of the signature events in our sport, providing a key highlight to the European clay court season as the world’s best battle for one of the most prestigious titles, as well as 1000 Emirates ATP Rankings points on offer to the winner.

Boasting no fewer than three courts with retractable roofs, the Caja Magica is unquestionably one of the most impressive facilities on the ATP World Tour. The tournament welcomed more than 200,000 fans through the gates in 2015 and continues to grow in popularity in the Spanish capital as fans flock to the Caja Magica to witness the world’s greatest players in action.

I would like to thank the tournament organisers for making the Mutua Madrid Open the highly successful event it is today. I would also like to extend my gratitude to the title sponsor, Mutua Madrileňa, for its continued support.

The ATP World Tour is enjoying unprecedented success, with an all-time record 4.5 million fans attending ATP events in 2015, a global television audience of 973 million, and record audiences tuning in online – all of this, thanks to an incredible generation of players as well as to the strength of our global platform of tournaments.

We thank you for your support and hope you enjoy all the action as the drama unfolds throughout the tournament. The 2016 ATP World Tour features 62 events in 32 countries. We invite you to follow us all season long at www.ATPWorldTour.com.

Best wishes,

Chris Kermode
ATP Executive Chairman and President
