Tournament Director Richard Krajicek: "Nick Kyrgios is a high-profile player in many ways, but his brilliant tennis comes first, you sometimes see him doing impossible things on the court. In Rotterdam we will finally be able to see him play live. "
The 23-year-old Australian, who has won four titles so far, is immediately one of the title favorites for Krajicek. "He has won all his titles on hard court and he is certainly one of the contenders for the title."

To the question of a loyal fan of the tournament whether he finally wanted to come to Rotterdam Ahoy, Kyrgios replied: "I would love to. Richard Krajicek has invited me several times, but for whatever reason it has not happened yet. Hopefully 2019 is the year." Immediately afterwards Richard Krajicek has started the conversation and it is great that it's completed now "
