The Diriyah Tennis Cup hoping to host a memorable tournament edition
The inaugural Diriyah Tennis Cup took place in 2019. Back then, Medvedev won the inaugural tournament edition.
After not hosting the tournament in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, the Diriyah Tennis Cup is set to have an even better player field than it had in 2019. The tournament organizers are thrilled with their player field and they are confident it will be a great week of tennis in Saudi Arabia.
“As the host of international tennis stars, the Kingdom continues to show its excellence in hosting international sports events, which has made it home to various sports, including this event – in which international stars will participate – that we are happy to organize.
The 2019 Diriyah Tennis Cup achieved great success which attracted thousands of fans from the Kingdom and abroad, and in this edition, we look forward to continuing these accomplishments and watching great competitive games in historic Diriyah, in the presence of fans of tennis, a sport that is highly popular in the Kingdom,” Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, sports minister and chair of the Diriyah Season Committee said. It remains to be seen who will win the second edition of the Diriyah Tennis Cup.
