Rafael Nadal is leading the strongest line-up ever for the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. Together with Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev and Matteo Berrettini, a total of five players out of the top 10 of the ATP Rankings will be present in Rotterdam Ahoy. The tournament is held from 1 until 7 March.

Tournament Director Richard Krajicek: “The line-up is amazing. We have been watching the entries over the last week with pleasure. We already knew players like Nadal, Medvedev and Tsitsipas, but Rublev and Berrettini definitely enhance the attractiveness of the tournament.”

There are also beautiful names on the list outside the top 10. Defending champion Gael Monfils and 2015 tournament winner Stan Wawrinka have already been announced.

Last year we had a wonderful final between Auger-Aliassime and Monfils. I am curious how the talents will fare in this even stronger field.”
