AUGSBURG, June 3, 2021
The 2021 Schwaben Open will not take place. This was announced by Isar One GmbH, organizers of the ATP Challenger 80 event on Wednesday. The clay-court tournament was scheduled to be held at the Tennis Club Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany, from August 1 to 8, 2021.
The tournament’s statement via social media:
“With a heavy heart we have to postpone the Schwaben Open for another year. Due to the current situation, we will not be able to stage the event in the usual form until 2022. As a tournament made by locals for locals, the attendance of spectators is our top priority. In addition, the imponderables and, above all, the economic risk are currently too high to host the event.
“Nevertheless, our team as well as the Tennis Club Augsburg are still highly motivated to further develop the Schwaben Open and to bring the great atmosphere of the first edition in 2019 back to the facility in the coming year. With your help, enthusiastic spectators and great players, we will finally be back in 2022.
“Of course, tickets that have already been purchased are also valid for next year!
The SchwabenOpen team is always available to answer any questions and we would be very happy to see you again in person in August 2022.”

The Schwaben Open celebrated its inaugural edition in summer 2019 when local favourite Yannick Hanfmann powered to his fifth ATP Challenger Tour career title and fourth on home soil following his triumphs in Ismaning 2017, Braunschweig 2018 and Ludwigshafen earlier in 2019. In an exciting final, the German, a former University of Southern California standout, saved three match points to overcome rising tennis star Emil Ruusuvuori of Finland in three sets.
Last year’s tournament was cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
