In search of the best Spaniards in the challengers
After the success of last year, the MAPFRE Tennis League returns in 2021 with a renewed format in search of the best Spanish tennis players in the male and female challengers played in Spain, tournaments in categories between $ 50,000 and $ 80,000.
If the objective of last year was to help Spanish tennis players in their return to competition after the break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation (RFET) now wants to support and give visibility to the players who transit in the second division of world tennis in its leap to the ATP and WTA circuits.
The MAPFRE Tennis League ranking will score the Spanish tennis players who compete in the 10 ATP Challenger men’s tournaments scheduled in Spain this 2021, and the Spanish players who participate in the 4 highest category ITF World Tennis Tour women’s tournaments (60 and 80 thousand dollars) of our country.
