The President of Kuwait and Arab Tennis Federations Sheikh Ahmad says that they would be a third ATP Tournament in Kuwait after events already currently being held in Qatar and Dubai, adding that there are also plans to open a Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy in Kuwait.



In an interview, Shaikh says,

“There will be a third ATP tournament following Qatar and Dubai. We will attract World Champions to Kuwait Open. We will not ignore the individual sports clubs, rather we will support them so that they can have the bases to provide national teams with players, and we hope that they work with us, so that we can get players who can represent Kuwait at the highest level at all Arab, Asian and International events.”

Shaikah was speaking during a press conference held with Anil Khanna, the visiting President of the Asian Tennis Federation and the Vice President of the International Tennis Federation.

Khanna is running for the ITF President when the general assembly is held in September.

Khanna also visited the Sheikh Jaber Al-Abdallah Al-Jaber International Tennis Complex, “We hope the complex will be open on schedule in January.: and added that the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy will be opened in Kuwait soon.

Khanna commented,

“It is a great privilege to be in Kuwait as I can see the dream of Sheikh Ahmad coming through. I’ve known Sheikh Ahmad for many years have had the privilege of taking his guidance in many issues over the years.



When Sheikh Ahmad was planning to build a tennis complex, he had a vision and a dream to making the finest complex in Asia if not the entire world. I am happy to say, with this kind of infrastructure that Sheikh Ahmad dreamed of will do extremely well for the children of Kuwait and the future of Kuwait tennis and will indeed give a great benefit to all of tennis in West Asia”.
