Santana, honored on the Rafa Nadal court
The center court of the RCTB, which has been named after Rafa Nadal since 2017, has paid a heartfelt tribute to Manuel Santana, an unforgettable tennis player for the best fans and who passed away last December.
The stands applauded unanimously when the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell speaker recalled the figure of the former champion on the same Barcelona clay in 1962 and 1970․
Santana was always one of those people who was loved in every corner of the club, for everything he represented as a player and, once he retired, as manager and captain of the Spanish Davis Cup team.
After a nice video and loud applause, a good part of the spectators who witnessed the tribute looked up at the sky, dedicating a more than deserved smile to him before the next match.
