Bio In his fifty-three years of life dedicated to tennis, in which he was everything, he held all the positions and tasks that meet in this sporting activity.

Since he was a child - his father, Pau was a tennis coach -, he learned to walk at the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona, and, logically, to hold a racket and turn a tennis ball into his favorite toy. At nightfall, when the partners left the courts on Ganduxer Street, Pau Bartrolí watched as his kids, Jaime and Teresa, were playing tennis with the moon. They practiced at night, especially on full moon days when visibility was greatest. And so Jaime became an excellent tennis player.

Jaime was linked to the sport of the racket, and even in his last moments, in the delirium caused by fever, he intensely "lived" the role of Davis Cup captain, a position he held with. He was successful for twelve years in a row and three more previously, in 1956, 1957 and 1958, when he was already retiring as an active player. He was the delegate in Spain of the Dunlop firm and representative of the Fred Perry brand, activities that alternated with his faithful dedication to the tasks of the Spanish Tennis Federation as a technician and great connoisseur of the world of tennis.

Although a good tennis player, with important triumphs, without including any of the Grand Slam, Jaime Bartrolí has ​​gone down in sports history as the great captain of Spanish tennis. Under his command, Spain played two Davis Cup finals, both in Australia, in 1965 and 1967, and the best tennis players in the country have passed through his hand in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. He always knew how to select the best, without paying attention to other criteria that were not the formation of the best possible team to achieve success. His knowledge shared space with his warmth, and from that successful combination came a perfect captain to lead a united team.

When he left the direction of the Davis Cup in the hands of Juan Manuel Couder, in 1976, Jaime Bartrolí continued to give all his support to the new captain and always offered himself for whatever was needed. His experience served for the formation of young players.

Jaime Bartrolí had battled for the tracks of the entire world as a player, coach, judge-referee, manager and collector.

Internationally, he was individual champion in Geneva (1948).
Jaime Bartrolí was tennis champion of Catalonia for several years, and in 1952 and 1955 in the three tests that were disputed. He achieved an absolute triumph in the Internationals of Spain, which later came to be called the Conde de Godó trophy, although he was not recognized in the exchange. The Count of Godó played it eleven times, and only twice did he go to the second round. He defended Spain in the Davis Cup, as a player, in five games, from 1946 to 1954, with one individual played and with victory, and four doubles, precisely his specialty, and all of them lost. He played Wimbledon, his favorite tournament, eight times without much luck.

Jaime Bartrolí participated in 17 Spanish championships, from 1936 to 1957, with fifty individual matches, of which he won thirty-five; fifty-one in doubles, with forty-four wins; and forty-six in mixed, with thirty-seven won. Fourteen times champion, eight in doubles and six in mixed, and with two singles finals, lost.
He won 8 occasions with four different partners: Luis Carles (1942-43), Pedro Castellá (1945), Pedro Masip (1946-47-48-49) and Emilio Martínez (1952).
