I hope it encourages the development of tennis in Greece, and I’m already looking forward to visiting the centre. Stefanos Tsitsipas

Reconnecting with Greek heritage

Born to a Greek father, Patrick Mouratoglou was committed to rapidly establishing a presence in his country of origin and expanding to Greece seemed as an obvious choice, he says: “I feel a profound sense of patriotism; I am half-French and half-Greek, and during my childhood, I spent several months in Greece every year. I feel very attached to it.”

Emphasising the magnitude of the project, Patrick Mouratoglou added

Costa Navarino is an exceptional destination to visit, as well as to live which attracts a like-minded community of individuals, thanks to the quality of the infrastructures, the geographical location, but also the quality of the services.
