Zverev withdraws from ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament05 february 2019
Alexander Zverev will not be present during the 46th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament due to an ankle injury. The 21-year-old German withdrew today. Moreover, it was announced today that Tomas Berdych was assigned a wildcard. The ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament takes place from 9 to 17 February in Rotterdam Ahoy.
Tournament Director Richard Krajicek: "Alexander Zverev had problems with his ankle in the run-up to the Australian Open and this injury has returned during the Davis Cup. Therefore, he cannot play in Ahoy. "
The 33-year-old Czech Tomas Berdych comes to Rotterdam for the 12th time. In 2014 he won the title, by winning the final from Marin Cilic. A year later he reached the final again, but then he lost from Stan Wawrinka. In 2008 he also won the double title with Dmitry Tursunov.
Tournament Director Richard Krajicek: "Tomas Berdych has been out for some time due to back problems, but on his return he proved his class immediately. In Doha he reached the final and in Australia he also easily reached the fourth round. It's nice to see an old winner back in Rotterdam."
The spot of Alexander Zverev is taken by Matthew Ebden.
