Three top twenty players from the ATP Tour, led by Nº 12 Feliciano Lopez,  are coming to the Estoril Tennis Club this week to compete in the tournament.

Workmen are busy putting the finishes touches to the stadium on the centre court of the Estoril Tennis Club which will seat 3,590 people. The whole club has been totally refurbished so that it will look its best for the event.

The two main courts are in perfect condition with new lines and tons of clay mixed with salt to give a shiny look, especially on the TV for the evening matches.

The promoters of the Open are a new grouping comprising Dutchman Benno van Veggel, who has lived in Portugal since the 1980s and founded the Country Clube de Cascais, Clube Setimo and the Lisbon Racket Center in Alvalade, his partner Armindo Mirante, plus UCOM (the German advertising media company represented in Portugal by Joao Zilhão) and Polaris (owned by Jorge Mendes), which specialises in sponsors and marketing.

“We want to create a boutique like tournament in which people will visit who want to see the best tennis in Portugal and we also want to give business people networking opportunities, all in a tennis environment,” says Benno van Veggel. “We have introduced evening sessions on three days and we are very happy to move the tournament back to Estoril where it began. It has been crucial to know that we have the full backing of the Cascais Câmara. They feel it is their event as well. Their backing and that of the main sponsor, Millennium BCP, has been fundamental.”

The qualifying rounds will be played on Saturday/Sunday 25th/26th April and the tournament will run from Monday 27th to Sunday 3rd May, with afternoon sessions every day and evening sessions on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 29th/30th April and 1st May.  Information about the tournament and ticketing can be found on millenniumestorilopen.com or for further information call 21 482 1499.
