In the ITF Futures category, the young Carlos Alcaraz showed that he is in great shape reaching his first semifinals in the absolute international tournament, defeating among others Alvaro Lopez San Martin (highest ranking 350 ATP)

In the junior circuit, other results were also highlighted: Alejandro Turriziani, 15 years old, was proclaimed finalist of the ITF junior in Cairo and champion in doubles, along with Carles Hernández, also player of the academy.


Good results have happened throughout the international circuit, in both singles and doubles. And even at national level with the little ones. The under14 players of the Academy reached the final of the Team Championships of the Valencian Community, thus guaranteeing their promotion to the first category.

A great start of the year for the academy that demonstrates the great level of its players. People expect a lot from them this year.
