Tommy Paul will represent a rejuvenated American tennis

The new world number #29 joins the list of confirmed entries to compete in the Gijón Open

American tennis will be represented at the Gijón Open ATP 250 with one of its rising figures: 25-year-old Tommy Paul, who broke into the Top-30 this Monday, landing at number 29.

Tommy Paul is another great young talent among the new generation of American tennis players. He has already got an ATP title to his name, won last year in Stockholm, and this season has reached the quarterfinals in the Montreal Masters 1000 –overcoming Carlos Alcaraz –, Adelaide, London, Eastbourne and Atlanta. 

He achieved his best performance in a Grand Slam event by reaching the round of 16 at Wimbledon this year. More recently, he lost in the third round at the US Open to eventual runner-up Casper Ruud.

The American joins the list of entries confirmed by organizers, which includes Spaniards Pablo Carreño and Roberto Bautista, world number nine Russian Andrey Rublev, Italian Fabio Fognini, Belgian David Goffin and the Grand Slam winner Dominic Thiem of Austria.

The official entry list for this first edition of the Gijón Open will be published on Tuesday.
