Tommy Robredo will say goodbye to tennis at the Godó

The veteran Catalan tennis player will put an end to his career in his “second home”

BARCELONA, March 24. (.) –

Spanish tennis player Tommy Robredo announced his retirement this Thursday and will bid farewell to professional tennis at the next edition of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell-Conde de Godó Trophy, which will be held from April 16 to 24, his “second home” and the tournament that remember with “more affection”.

“We have been on the track for many years, the pandemic has delayed my final. I wanted to say goodbye at home and look at the stands and not see the public was something I did not want,” admitted Robredo, currently number 343 in the ATP ranking and who was accompanied by his friend and director of Godó, David Ferrer, at his farewell.

Robredo, who will turn 40 in May, reached fifth position in the world ranking in 2006 and has accumulated 890 appearances in a 23-year career with a record of 12 titles. Among them the Godó, a tournament that he won in 2004 and that will definitively fire him from the slopes in front of his fans. In addition, he was part of the team that won the Davis Cup in 2004, 2008 and 2009.

The Spanish tennis player showed great regularity throughout his career, staying among the top thirty in the world for eleven seasons. “We are lucky, the racket was our hobby. Now it’s time to start new stages,” explained Robredo at the Vilarnau winery, a new collaborator of the Barcelona tournament.

The one from Hostalric already won the Godó in 2004 against the Italian Federico Gaio and will put an end to his career in front of his fans and on the courts of the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona-1899, a club to which he has belonged since he was 15 years old. “It will be spectacular to see my friends in the Godó. You know the voices and it’s a magical feeling”, he admitted about the tournament that he remembers with “more fondness”.

Among his great achievements, Robredo became the first player in the Open Era to come back from three consecutive matches with two sets down, and he is also the third tennis player in ATP history with the best winning percentage in five-set matches, with 80% effective.
