MUNICH, February 7, 2020
Philipp Kohlschreiber will return to the BMW Open by FWU this spring. The three-time Munich champion joins fellow German Alexander Zverev and Italian teen sensation Jannik Sinner. Kohlschreiber clinched the title of the ATP 250 clay-court tournament in 2007, 2012 and 2016.
“I’m happy to be able to play in Munich every year in front of my home fans. That’s always a great motivation. I have participating in the BMW Open by FWU 15 times since 2002. Of course it is one of my favorite tournaments,” Kohlschreiber said during a press conference on Friday.
