LEGENDS KEEP CROWDS GUESSING TILL THE END

This year’s Masters, got off to a flying start with the arrival of Bjorn Borg and Manolo Santana at Hotel Puente Romano, who came together to launch theevent. Speaking at the press conference Bjorn said: “It is great that this event ishappening in Marbella, the people of Spain and Marbella are veryknowledgable tennis fans and understand and appreciated both thecompetitive tour as well as the legends tour.“What Anders (Borg) is trying to build-up here is fantastic.

Recently due to theeconomic climate, especially in Europe a lot of legend’s events havebeen cancelled, so it is impressive that this is going ahead and somethingwe should all support. “I’m looking forward to the weekhere.”The tournamentkicked-off on Thursday with a Junior exhibition match, followed by closematch between Pat Cash and Younes El Alanoui. Things weren´t lookingon the bright side for Cash but he managed to turn the match around in his favour beating Alanoui 6-7, 6-4, 10-7.

Ronald Agenor played some brilliant tennis, taking Bjorn Borg by surprise, beating him 6-0,6-3.The first match oncentre court on day two, was Agenor versus Cash in an exciting fast playbetween two very strong players. The American and the Australian are verycompatible making the match extremely interesting to watch. Both physicallystrong and very fast, Agenor pulled through winning both sets 6-4, 6-4 withCash gave him a run for his money…

Second out were Borg and El Aynaoui, this game was also very close. Borg looked on form and played a speedy and focused game where now and again you got a glimpse ofsome of his past playing technique that made him famous. He plays long,fast and low. The crowd loved him and cheered him on during the entirematch. El Aynaoui is a skilled player with a natural playing style.

His very athletic and tall physique gives an advantage in combination withdeadly accuracy when hitting the ball. El Aynaoui won the game 7-6 in thefirst set and 6-3 in the second.Finals day got off to a great start with Ronald Agenor and Younes El Aynaoui who played a very close, but finally El Aynaoui took both sets 6-4, 6-4.
