Nick Kyrgios, Roberto Bautista Agut, Miomir Kecmanovic and Sebastian Baez are some of the other players to watch for. Hubert Hurkacz, who reached the semifinals of the 2021 Wimbledon and the big-serving John Isner were also set to compete, but have pulled out of the tournament.

With quite a few big names and in-form players, it's shaping up to be an exciting tournament. Here's all the key information regarding the 2022 Mallorca Open.


What is the Mallorca Open?

The Mallorca Open is a recent addition to the ATP tour. The debut edition was scheduled to be held in 2020, but only took place a year later due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Classified as an ATP 250 event, it takes place in the picturesque town of Santa Ponsa in Mallorca, Spain.

The 2021 edition attracted plenty of top players, with Daniil Medvedev, Dominic Thiem and Casper Ruud being a few of the notable names. 20-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic also participated, albeit in doubles. After a successful debut edition, the tournament returns to the ATP circuit once again.


Venue

The tournament will take place at the Santa Ponsa Tennis Academy in Santa Ponsa, Mallorca, Spain.
