DAVID Ferrer is among a trio of Spanish stars to have been announced for the Marbella Senior Masters Cup 2019.
The 37-year-old from Javea, who retired in May, will be joined by his compatriot Feliciano Lopez from Toledo.
Lopez, also 37, was knocked out in the second round of Wimbledon by Russiam, Karen Khachanov.
But his two Queen’s 2019 titles in the singles and doubles may make him favourite for the Costa del Sol tournament held from September 27-28.
The fourth edition of the competition also features ATP Tour legends, German Tommy Haas, 41, and another Spaniard, Tommy Robredo, 37.
Haas bagged himself a silver medal in the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000, while Catalunyan Robredo is a former world number five after he won the 2006 Hamburg Masters.
Lopez is set to take on Robredo at 5:30pm on September 27, before the second semi final between Ferrer and Haas at 8:00pm.
The third place play-off will take place at 5:30pm the following day, with the final later that evening.
Marbella’s stunning Club de Tenis Puente Romano is the chosen venue for this unmissable seniors event.
The tournament has been dubbed a ‘tennis show’ by Joaquin Rios, from the organising company Tennium.
The previous winners were Juan Carlos Ferrero (2018), Carlos Moya (2017) and Albert Costa (2016).
