Coach of Serena Williams creates a tournament with Italian players for may


Patrick Mouratoglou, coach of Serena Williams, has launched an exhibition tournament that will be held in may in the premises of his academy, with players like the Italian Fabio Fognini and belgian David Goffin.

The australian Alexei Popyrin and the French Benoit Paire are the other two players confirmed up to the moment.

The tournament will begin to be played on the 16th or 17th of may at the academy, Mouratoglou, with headquarters in Biot (France), near Nice, and will feature close to 50 meetings.

These dates are adapted to the end of the confinement in France, which according to the Government will end the 11th of may.

The objective of Mouratoglou is that this tournament has the nature of a display for now, but with time it becomes an annual event, with points and prizes, as played in an interview with the Tennis Majors.

‘For five weekends, from the 16th or the 17th of may, ten players are going to play against each other. We hope to have 50 matches. Will be top players, although we have not yet spoken with a lot of seeping the details of the project, ” said the coach.

The tennis world is in these moments suspended until the 13 of July, although it seems complicated that international tournaments can be resumed from that date.
