Marbella, August 25, 2011: The Marbella Masters kicked off on Thursday 25th August, with a Junior exhibition match, followed by close match between Pat Cash and Younes El Alanoui. Things weren´t looking on the bright side for Cash but he managed to turn the match around in his favour beating Alanoui 6-7, 6-4, 10-7.
Ronald Agenor played some brilliant tennis, taking Bjorn Borg by surprise, beating him 6-0, 6-3.
Next it was the Swedes taking on the Dutch with a father – son tie break match with Richard Krajicek, (one of last years participants) playing with his 10 year old son against Bjorn Borg and his doubles partner, 9 year old son, Leo. It wasn´t an easy game for the Borg duo but son Leo showed great strength against the much taller Alec Krajicek. However Alec showed great sportsmanship and his very natural playing style clearly helped the Dutch family team win 10-7. Clearly the Wimbledon winner fathers had little to do with it!
