KITZBÜHEL, June 12, 2019
In less than 50 days, Dominic Thiem will return to appear on home soil, competing in the first-ever night session at the Generali Open in Kitzbühel. The World No. 4 and two-time finalist at Roland Garros will open his title bid at the ATP 250 event on Wednesday, 31st July, at 7:30 pm local time.
Meanwhile, the organizers of the Generali Open were honoured with the „Award of Excellence“ by the ATP. The tournament, nestled in the Alps in the Tyrol region of Austria, won the category “Best Fan-Experience” in 2018.
“It’s an award that our fans deserve in the first place. The atmosphere both at the venue and in the city of Kitzbühel is excellent,” tournament director Alexander Antonitsch commented. “Players like the fair fans and the sensational atmosphere.”
The clay-court event is waiting for its first Austrian singles champion since 1993, when Thomas Muster won the title. Thiem came close with a runner-up finish in 2014. Local resident Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany lifted the trophy in 2015 and 2017. The 2019 edition will be held from July 27 to August 3.
