The Valencia tournament was reborn in 2009, transitioning from a spring clay court event to an indoor hard court ATP World Tour 500 tournament held in the second-to-last week of the regular season. With its new calendar position, the Valencia Open serves as a prime battleground for the men’s best tennis players as they attempt to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.
Last year the title was taken by Andy Murray as he beat Mikhail Youzhny 6-3, 6-2. Murray will be looking to defend another title and add to his 2 titles of 2010.
A strong field also includes Robin Soderling, who is making his debut in Valencia, local favorite and part investor in the tournament David Ferrer & both of last years semi finalists, Nikolay Davydenko & Fernando Verdasco.
