  • Pablo Andújar, winner of the 2019 edition, will also participate in the AnyTech365 Andalucía Open taking place at the Puente Romano tennis club

Malaga-born tennis player Alejandro Davidovich will compete in the 2021 ATP 250 AnyTech365 Andalucía Open taking place from 4 to 11 April at the Puente Romano tennis club in Marbella, it has been confirmed.

Davidovich, currently ranked 51st in the world, said he was excited at the prospect of playing in his home province and expressed his hope that fans would be able to attend the tournament. The 21-year-old, who played at Puente Romano in 2018 and 2019 on the Challenger Tour, was complimentary of the way in which spectators got behind him at these previous tournaments.

Davidovich will hope to use the tournament to get his season back on track following a difficult start to 2021 which saw him miss the Australian Open after testing positive for coronavirus.

Former champion returns

Fellow Spaniard Pablo Andújar, who won the 2019 edition of the tournament, this week also announced he would take part not only in the ATP 250 event but also the ATP 80 Challenger tournament beginning on 29 March in the same place.

The veteran has had an easier start to the year, reaching the second round of the Australian Open. This performance means he currently lies 57th in the world rankings, six places behind Davidovich.

The pair will be joined by the likes of Jannik Sinner, Stan Wawrinka, Andrey Rublev and Pablo Carreño who have all confirmed their participation.
