Welcome to the German Open
Last year, 71,500 spectators witnessed high level tennis on nine tournament days with former winners Rafael Nadal, Fabio Fognini and Juan Monaco. Majorcan clay court specialist Rafael Nadal eventually won a thrilling finale (7:5 and 7:5) against a strong Fabio Fognini who won the Rothenbaum tournament in 2013. It was Nadal’s second win in Hamburg after 2008.
The 110th edition of this traditional tennis tournament will take place in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg from July 9th to July 17th, 2016. Germany’s number one, Philipp Kohlschreiber, is on top of the entry list. We are also looking forward to Alexander Zverev who was voted ATP Star of Tomorrow last year and reached the final of the ATP tournament in Nice this year. Former Rothenbaum winner Leonardo Mayer will also participate once again. Florian Mayer and the youngster Marvin Möller, who is only 17 years old, got a Wild Card for the main draw from the tournament director Micheal Stich. Möller is currently the number 24 in the junior world ranking, in the current season he won already four junior tournaments and reached the quarterfinal at the Roland Garros Junior Championships. The German Open 2016 is the first ATP tournament which Marvin Möller is playing, whereas Florian Mayer played the German Open ten times already.
