Barcelona Open: History
The Barcelona Open 2014 is coming! It is the oldest tennis tournament in Spain and one of the most famous clay courts. This year is already the 62th edition, indeed the first Trofeo Conde de Godo, as the spaniards call it, took place in 1953! You probably wouldn’t be surprised if I tell you it is one of the major annual sport events in Barcelona where tennis players such as Nadal love to play in the middle of Spring.
Barcelona Open: Program
On the weekend of 19th and 20th of April, only qualifiers will take place, with the actual tournament starting on Monday with the first round. The first days are obviously the cheapest days as there is no big game yet. If you’re looking for big games and have a little bit more of money to spend on it, the Quarterfinals will take place on friday, Semifinals on Saturday, and the big Final, where of course Nadal is expected, will take place on Sunday. Last year, The final 2 players were Rafael Nadal and Nicolas Almagro. Everybody expected David Ferrer, one of the greatest clay players in the world along with Rafael Nadal, but he was surprisingly eliminated by Dmitri Tursunov. No doubt David Ferrer will seek revenge this year!
Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell has already shared the list of players on their website.
Then, you should be able to check the Barcelona Open results live from the beginning until the end of the tournament.

Tickets for Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell 2014
