The confrontation between compatriots is welcomed, and will bring out the player’s qualities: Isner’s serve, Fritz’s versatility, and Korda’s speed, son of former Czech tennis player, Petr Korda.

In addition to these great players, the tournament will also have the presence of the Frenchman Adrian Mannarino (No. 42), the Argentinian Guido Pella (No. 59) and the South African Kevin Anderson (No. 103), whose powerful serve and back strokes will be appreciated by all the fans.

The Abierto de Tenis Mifel, through its safety program, ATC Safety will be responsible for planning and operating all safety measures and protocols in order to ensure and safeguard the health of the staff, players, and guests within the tournament.
