The Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell does not forget Nicolás Almagro and will pay tribute to him on April 24

The Organizing Committee of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell has decided to pay tribute to Nicolás Almagro in an event to be held on the third day of the main draw, on Wednesday 24. The ceremony will be held on the Rafa Nadal court before the scheduled game of the defender of the title, in which he will make his debut just as in past years.

Almagro announced in Murcia a few days ago his retirement from tennis at 33 years old. In 2013 he achieved his best result at the Real Club Tenis Barcelona tournament when he played the final against Nadal. For nine seasons he has been a player of the centenary club, with which he has been part of the team and collaborated in the conquest of some of their triumphs in the national championships.

Ninth in the ATP ranking in 2011, Almagro closes a stage of 16 seasons in professional tennis in which he has obtained 13 ATP titles and aces leader on clay, with 2,879

The Murcian tennis player, who during his stay in Barcelona will offer a press conference, will remain linked to tennis and will from now on serve as director of the La Manga Club tennis academy.
