Fabulous tennis at the Hamburg Open in Rothenbaum Stadium! The long-established tennis tournament will take place in Hamburg from 20th to 28th July 2019.

The Hamburg Open is one of the oldest tennis tournaments in the world. The ATP sand court event will take place again this year on the tennis grounds at Rothenbaum, which will be partially modernized before the tournament begins. The tournament premiered in 1892 and has been held on the Rothenbaum since 1924. The victory is rewarded with around 2 million euros. The Hamburg Open falls into the category ATP 500. There are 32 players in the main field singles and 16 in the qualification.

A premiere: The European Championship of Tennis Professionals

For the first time this year at the Hamburg Open, the European Champion of Tennis Professionals will be crowned at the same time. What was previously reserved for juniors and seniors will now also be played on professional level for the first time. In the week before the Hamburg Open, the first U21 European Championship will also take place in Hamburg. The possibility of a women's European Championship in the future is also being considered. The sports senator of the Hanseatic city found some promising words: "I am very pleased that the new organisers want to develop the oldest German tennis tournament with a lot of ambition and personal passion and thus maintain it in Hamburg for the long term. The great tradition of top international tennis at the Rothenbaum will lead into a successful future with the Hamburg Open as the European Championship. The Hamburg Open will certainly be a real highlight for all sports enthusiasts in Hamburg".

Major names as guests in Hamburg

This year you can expect the best field of participants of the last ten years at the Hamburg Open. The German number one Alexander "Sascha" Zverev returns to his hometown for the tournament. By personal invitation of the organizers the world's number five received a wildcard to finally be back in Hamburg after three years. Zverev is already the third top ten player to have given his approval for the Hamburg Open 2019, alongside the Austrian French Open finalist Dominic Thiem (ATP 4) and the Italian Fabio Fognini (ATP 10). But also tennis professionals of the German scene will be at the start. Germany's number two Jan-Lennard Struff, evergreen Philipp Kohlschreiber and top talent Rudi Molleker (on wildcard) will also compete at the Rothenbaum.

But not only the individual players are high-profile - a world-class tournament also awaits you in doubles. The German French Open winners Kevin Krawietz (Coburg) and Andreas Mies (Cologne) are in first place. "We are looking forward to the Hamburg European Open. A German tournament - it's always cool to be there. A beautiful city, a beautiful complex! We want to play for the title, but we have to try to win the first round first, because the competition is very strong," says 27-year-old Kevin Krawietz. 

An impressive supporting programme: Tennis meets Music

In addition to the spectacle on the pitch, there will also be a colourful supporting programme this year. Among the highlights will definitely be the performances of singer Max Giesinger ("Wenn sie tanzt") and the Hamburger Goldkehlchen at the opening event on 21 July.
