ATP Barcelona Players 2019

Who is playing at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell in 2019?

Rafael Nadal returns to the tournament he's ruled almost without interruption for well over a decade. Nadal, Spain's favourite son and the King of Clay, holds the ATP Tour record for most titles won at a single tournament, having triumphed at three events - the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, the French Open and the Barcelona Open - a total of 11 times. 

Nadal has a 58-3 record at the Barcelona Open and is on a 15-match winning streak at the 500-level tournament since losing to Fabio Fognini in 2015. He will be looking for an amazing twelfth title on the court named after him - Pista Rafa Nadal - when the 2019 edition begins on Monday 22 April.

Nadal is obviously the star attraction, but the prestigious Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell has also attracted a typically glittering field in 2019. Nadal is joined by three other players ranked inside the top 10: Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Greek who had his breakthrough run when he made the final of the Barcelona Open in 2018 and has gone on to reach the semifinals at the Australian Open; Kei Nishikori, the 2014-15 Barcelona Open champion; and Dominic Thiem, the French Open finalist who has beaten Nadal multiple times on clay and recently bolstered his claim to be considered a contender for the biggest titles when he won his first Masters 1000 Series title at Indian Wells.

Tsitsipas is only one of the 'Next Gen' stars due to light up the 2019 Barcelona Open, as the Greek is joined by Paris Masters champion Karen Khachanov, his compatriot Daniil Medvedev, Australia's Alex de Minaur and rising Canadians Denis Shapovalov and Miami semifinalist Felix Auger-Aliassime.

The more experienced Fabio Fognini and David Goffin, always perpetual threats at any clay-court event, round out what is an extremely strong field at the 2019 Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell.  

About the Barcelona Open

One of 13 ATP 500 tournaments for the season, and the only one on clay, the Barcelona Open was established back in 1953 and is played at the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona - the oldest tennis club in Spain.

An important stop on the road to Roland Garros, and a popular destination following the completion of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters - which officially kicks off the European clay court season the week before - the Barcelona Open has seen some of the world’s best ever players grace it’s honour roll over its illustrious history. Legendary names including Roy Emerson, Manuel Santana, Ilie Nastase, Bjorn Borg, Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander, Thomas Muster, Marat Safin and Juan Carlos Ferrero have all emerged triumphant at the Barcelona Open over the years. Spaniards traditionally excel at the Barcelona Open, with only two finals since 1996 featuring two players from other countries. 

Unsurprisingly, the Spanish-born King of Clay, Rafael Nadal, has dominated the tournament to an extraordinary extent over the past few years. Nadal's Barcelona Open career started with a second-round defeat to Alex Corretja in 2003 when he was just 16, but on his second appearance at the tournament, he won it, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero in the final. 

Nadal's 2005 title was the start of a five-year reign at the Barcelona Open before he skipped the event in 2010, returning to win three more titles in 2011-13 before his winning streak was finally snapped by Nicolas Almagro in the quarterfinals in 2014, ending a run of 42 consecutive matches won by Nadal in Barcelona.

While Kei Nishikori took advantage of Nadal's defeat to claim the Barcelona Open title in 2014 and successfully defended it in 2015 when Nadal lost just his third match in Barcelona to Fabio Fognini, the Spanish left-hander returned to glory in 2016 when he defeated Nishikori in the final and went on to win the title in 2017 (d. Dominic Thiem) and 2018 (d. Stefanos Tsitsipas). 

That brings Nadal's haul of titles at the Barcelona Open to an amazing 11 - a men's tennis record for titles won at one event. (Nadal also holds that record for 11 titles at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters and French Open).
