Javier Molina was amongst the big name winners at the Medis Copa Iberica as the Spanish national champion in the men's 50 division took the title and remained undefeated this year in singles on the ITF Senior Circuit.
Spaniards dominated the winners circle as nine of the 11 singles divisions went to home favourites with Portugal's Lourenco Santos Lima and Giuseppe Vento of Italy the only exceptions in the men's 35 and men's 70 respectively.
In the women's event there were notable successes for Leticia Almirall Garbayo and Carmen Lang Verdugo who completed victories in both singles and mixed doubles each doing so without the loss of a single set.
The women's 35 singles was won by former Number 1 Ana Salas-Lozano, who lost just seven games during her two round robin and final matches, showing her ability to dominate on home soil.
Over 130 players in total attended the event representing 20 different nations including Canada, Nigeria and Brazil. The event was finished in style with a gala dinner epitomising the friendly atmosphere that surrounded the play before a crowd of 200 were treated to a day of high class tennis for the finals.
