STARNBERG, June 10, 2019
German Alexander Zverev is the top seed at the MercedesCup in Stuttgart as the grass-court season begins on Monday. The 11-time ATP Tour titlist is looking to continue the best stretch of his season, having won his first title of the year in Geneva and reached the Roland Garros quarter-finals.
Joining Zverev in the field are Russians Karen Khachanov and Daniil Medvedev, along with Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili and #NextGenATP Canadians Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime. Khachanov reached his first Grand Slam quarter-final in Paris. Medvedev has played his best tennis on the grass, and Basilashvili will look to pick up his first title of the season.
Tsitsipas top seed in the Netherlands
Greece’s #NextGenATP star Stefanos Tsitsipas leads the field at the Libema Open in s’Hertogenbosch. The reigning Next Gen ATP Finals titlist will look to become the first player this season to win titles on all three surfaces following his triumphs this year on hard court in Marseille and on clay in Estoril.
Borna Coric, Fernando Verdasco, David Goffin and #NextGenATP stars Alex de Minaur and Frances Tiafoe, along with defending champion Richard Gasquet, will also compete for the ATP 250 title.
