Welcome to the Official Site of the 59th Copa del Café. Our 2024 tournament with a 32 player draw will be played from January 22 to 27, 2024, with the 32 player Qualy scheduled for January 20 and 21.


Night matches will be televised through the TD+ and TD Max (www.tdmax.com) platforms.

Tennis fans were treated Friday to 4 well played and entertaining semifinals in Stadium Court, starting at 3pm with the girls matches followed by the 2 boys matchups in night play.

In the first match third seed Iva JOVIC of USA defeated her friend and travelmate Alanis HAMILTON in straight sets by 6-4, 6-4 which went by the book in terms of ranking and WTN index with the best rated girl prevailing. But this matchup is not over as JOVIC- HAMILTON will square off once again in the girls doubles final. In the other girls match unseeded Israeli Mika BUCHNIK upset second seed Kaitlin QUEVEDO of USA in straight sets by the same 6-4, 6-4 score. Mika has been the surprise of the girls draw, playing well above what her WTN rating of 16.93 indicates and now will face JOVIC in the final.

In the boys SF the Dutchman 15 year old  wunderkind Thijs BOOGAARD fought back Qualifier Maxwell EXSTED of USA in a thrilling 3 sets 5-7, 6-2, 6-1. Tennis aficionados could not ask for more than these 2 top players delivered. In the last match American 5th seed Roy HOROVITS defeated the 7th seed Englishman Henry SEARLE in straight sets 6-3. 6-4. Both players were very evenly matched in terms of ranking and rating so it was perhaps surprising for Roy to win rather easily.  

Saturday Finals are to begin at 4pm on Stadium Court starting with Girls Doubles featuring all players from USA Tyra GRANT – Iva JOVIC vs. Claire AN – Alanis HAMILTON. GRANT/JOVIC, who won the Orange Bowl doubles togethre, are probably favorites. The Boys Doubles follows, featuring Ofek SHIMANOV (ISR) – Tristan STRINGER (USA) vs. Nicolai BUDKOV KJAER (NOR) – Henry SEARLE (GBR), is probably a tossup. The Girls Singles Final starting not before 6:30pm will be JOVIC-BUSHNIK, followed by the Boys Singles of HOROVITS-BOOGARD.
