Review Hamburg European Open 2019

For the first time last year, the Hamburg European Open simultaneously crowned the European Champion of tennis professionals. What was previously only reserved for juniors and seniors was now also held at professional level for the first time. In the week before the Hamburg EuropeanOpen, the first U21 European Championship also took place in Hamburg.

The German number one Alexander "Sascha" Zverev returned to his home town for the tournament. At the personal invitation of the organisers, the world number five received a wildcard to finally be back on the pitch in Hamburg after three years. Zverev was already the third top ten player, besides the Austrian French Open finalist Dominic Thiem (ATP 4) and the Italian Fabio Fognini (ATP 10), who had confirmed his participation in the Hamburg Open 2019. But also tennis professionals of the German scene were at the start. Germany's number two Jan-Lennard Struff, perennial favorite Philipp Kohlschreiber and top talent Rudi Molleker (by wildcard) also competed at Rothenbaum.

But not only the singles players were top-class - also in the doubles a world-class tournament awaited the guests. The German French Open winners Kevin Krawietz (Coburg) and Andreas Mies (Cologne) were seeded first.
