Dominic Thiem will play at the Hamburg Open in 2019 as well as in 2020. This was announced by the organizers of the ATP 500 clay-court event on Friday.
“It’s a great for the tournament that a world-class player like Dominic Thiem has commited to compete at the Rothenbaum for the next two years,” Sandra Reichel, new tournament director, stated in a press release.
