Arnaud Clément, Tournament director
Sustain the tournament and ensure the quality of the sporting show, these were our objectives to attain during the 5th edition of the Open Pays d’Aix CEPAC. Thanks to all of you, and despite the difficult weather conditions, the tournament was once again a success.
Our winner, John Millman, proves like his predecessors that ATP Challenger tournaments provide fertile ground for the future world elite and we feel very proud of this.
This year for its 6th edition, the tournament changes format. Due to the newly implemented ATP rules, the draw displays a group of 48 players for singles and 16 teams for doubles. We however remain one of the largest ATP Challenger tournament played on clay.
Again, a sincere thanks to all for this great adventure that allows us to meet once a year in a pleasant atmosphere. This remains and will remain our trademark.
