Tournament director Richard Krajicek: "This formula works”

27 February 2019
Tournament director Richard Krajicek:

Tournament director Richard Krajicek can look back at a great 46th edition of ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament with 111.086 spectators in total. "The spectators have seen great matches and a beautiful final. I was worried if the wrist of Monfils would hold it, but the Frenchman kept fighting. This week the 'older’ generation is winning the matches,  but the talents of this year: Daniil Medvedev and Denis Shapovalov made it hard for the older generation to win.”

Krajicek has chosen for strong players over the last few years. "Our philosophy works; six players of the top-20 this year. We even have Wawrinka as a bonus. His rating dropped because of his injury, but he has proven in Rotterdam Ahoy how good he still is.”

The 47th edition in Rotterdam Ahoy takes place from 8 to 16 february 2020. The ticket sale for the next ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament has started already. Krajicek: "We are going to evaluate first, but I am very satisfied. As an organisation we receive many compliments from visitors about the combination of great tennis and entertainment. Players like Tsonga, Nishikori and Tsitsipas are interesting for us every year. The combination of young and old fits our philosophy. This formula works.”
