Miguel Díaz Román today witnessed live the quarter-final matches of the ATP Challenger Costa Cálida Región de Murcia, which is being held at the Real Murcia Club de Tenis 1919.

The president of the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation said, before taking his place in the box, that «it is fundamental for us that this type of tournament is held in Spain», also praising the organisation of the tournament by the RMCT 1919.

«These tournaments are a way of helping our players to climb up the ATP rankings, as they are playing at home. This is also an important tournament because it awards 80 points, which is a lot for any player and can mean a big jump».

Finally, he said that «there is a great future in Spanish tennis. Carballés is one of our top players and is one of the great assets of our country». He also recalled that «we are the country with the most players below 100 in the ATP ranking».
