“We are very pleased that we were able to win such a globally respected and successful company as title sponsor for the Stuttgart tournament. The timing couldn’t be better with BOSS’ recent rebranding and realignment. That’s why we’re proud to be able to perfectly showcase the visibility of the brand around the ATP tournament in Stuttgart,” tournament director Edwin Weindorfer explained on Monday.

We wish all players the best of luck and look forward to an exciting tournament,” says Daniel Grieder, CEO of Hugo Boss.
