Strong line up for the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament

With Daniil Medvedev leading the field captain, the 49th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament has a very strong line up. With Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Rublev, Auger-Aliassime and Hurkacz, five players out of the global top-10 will participate in Rotterdam Ahoy. The entry for the tournament, which will take place from February 5-13, closed today.

Tournament director Richard Krajicek: "We are delighted to see that the world's top players have once again found their way to Rotterdam. While we had already announced the top-10 players, it is great to include names such as Shapovalov, Bautista Agut, Cilic, De Minaur and Goffin. They add to the attractiveness of our tournament.”

The list of players just outside the top-10 is impressive. Former champion Gael Monfils (2019 and 2020) and top talent Jannik Sinner were announced earlier. With the addition of Cameron Norrie, Denis Shapovalov, Roberto Bautista Agut and Aslan Karatsev, more than half of the top-20 of the ATP Ranking participate in the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament.

US Open 2014 winner Marin Cilic, finalist in Rotterdam that same year, is the second Grand Slam winner next to Medvedev.

NextGen stars
The NextGen stars category includes Jannik Sinner (20 years old) and Felix Auger-Aliassime (21). Denis Shapovalov (22) and Alex de Minaur (22) can also still be seen as part of the new generation. Richard Krajicek: "It is one of the important features of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament: The battle between the established order and up and coming talent. This year, too, that battle will undoubtedly lead to exciting matches.

Follow the tournament live from the first match until the last
The tournament can be followed live in its entirety, on TennisTV and numerous international stations and on Ziggo Sport Tennis and the NOS in the Netherlands. Richard Krajicek: "We are very happy that all matches can be followed live. With these players, top matches can be seen every day and the sports fan won’t have to miss anything. We look forward to broadcasting the tournament in the most spectacular way possible.

Wheelchair tournament
The entry for the ABN AMRO World Wheelchair Tennis Tournament, which will be held simultaneously in Rotterdam Ahoy, is also closed. The list of participants includes eight players out of the top-10, amongst others defending champion Alfie Hewett and finalist Gordon Reid. The Dutch contribution comes from Tom Egberink and Maikel Scheffers.
