Away from the spotlights of the ATP circuit, this week Spain has a leading role in the Challenger circuit; specifically Andalusia, where the Pozoblanco Open, a classic event on the tennis circuit that this season has once again enjoyed Challenger status. Without rimbonbantes names in the picture, a very varied profile of players enjoys the opportunity to win a title on the hard courts of the Pedroches Valley. Only one Spaniard survives: Adrián Menéndez Maceiras, who will face tomorrow in the quarterfinals one of the leading names on the circuit, the Turkish Altug Celikbilek.
