Tennis players Elina Svitólina and Gaël Monfils train at Bahía del Duque

Ranked numbers 5 and 11 in the world respectively meet in Tenerife with preparer Gunter Bresnik’s team

Tennis players Elina Svitolina and Gael Monfils are currently ranked numbers 5 and 11 in the world respectively. At present, they are staying at Hotel Bahía del Duque in Tenerife, where they are going through an intensive training programme under the Austrian coach Gunter Bresnik.

As in previous seasons, Bresnik has once again chosen Tenerife, in particular Hotel Bahía del Duque, as a place to bring top-level tennis players in search of the best possible training to face a long and demanding season with constant changes in weather, schedule, and also surface type – as is the case of this pair of elite players.

More specifically, Monfils, who in November 2016 held the best position in the individual ATP ranking of his career (being number 6 in the world), in addition to training at our hotel, is taking the opportunity to tour Tenerife – something he has made public on his social networks. He is doing so alongside the Ukrainian tennis player Elina Svitolina, who remains in the top 5 in the WTA classification.

Our hotel, a member of The Thais Hotels & Villas, has been practically from its origin a leading spot for elite athletes – and this is not only in the world of tennis, whose players prepare in the hotel’s outdoor facilities and especially in the Bahía Wellness Retreat, where individualised physiotherapy and nutrition treatments are undertaken.

The wellness and outdoor sports areas are a motivation for some of the best tennis players of the ATP World Tour, who also repeatedly visit the Island for the quality of the facilities and the mild climate, as well as for its environment, unique in the world.
