Nothing to say the Bayer International Tennis Tournament has really been a hotbed of great tennis talents for years. All of Italy applauded the fantastic Matteo Berrettini at Wimbledon, a pure talent who in 2014, demonstrating talent, ability and determination, had randomly brought the most prestigious trophy of the Salsomaggiore tournament.
And yesterday another magic born perhaps from the portentous waters of the spa city but above all from the strength of a particular and exciting tournament.
Alexander Zverev had won the youth tournament in 2012 as did Belinda Bencic in 2013. Today the two took home the Olympic gold in Tokyo.
And the Bayer International Tennis Tournament restarts after the pandemic with its 38th edition. It will start on August 21st to end on August 29th. Also this year we expect to see young future phenomena on the clay courts of the Salso tennis club. As many as 36 tennis players who have passed from there have entered their respective top ten rankings. Without forgetting four number ones in the weight of Andy Murray, Cljisters, Azarenka and Safina.
And what about the two promoters Valentino Aliani and Luigi Cenci who since the number one edition of the tournament have dedicated commitment, love and effort? Lucky, good, professional.
And what about Bayer, which has been title sponsor of the tournament for years? Far-sighted, visionary, socially committed. A group that believes in clean, honest and technically valuable sport.
“Our junior – says Tino Aliani – is certainly one of the most beautiful tennis events that can be done because he brings together hundreds of girls and boys still unknown but with enormous potential that express the tennis of the future. It is a tournament for connoisseurs because only those sensitive to tennis understand which are those young people who have the makings of champions in their DNA.Players of the caliber of Pennetta, Schiavone, and personalities of the caliber of Fognini, Sinner, Berrettini, Musetti have passed through us . Often it is not so important to win but you need to be able to express numbers and development potential “.
And then see you in Salsomaggiore.
