With Daniil Medvedev leading the field captain, the 49th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament has a very strong squad. Along with Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Rublev, Auger-Aliassime and Hurkacz, five players from the World Top 10 will participate in Rotterdam Ahoy. Registration for the tournament, which will run from February 5 to 13, closed today.

“We are delighted to see that the best players in the world have once again found their way to Rotterdam,” said tournament director Richard Krajicek. “Although we’ve already announced the top 10 players, it’s great to include names like 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 great 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 in the ATP rankings are participating in the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament.

The winner of the US Open 2014, Marin Cilic, finalist in Rotterdam the same year, is the second winner of the Grand Slam after Medvedev.

NextGen Stars

The NextGen star category includes Jannik Sinner (20) and Felix Auger-Aliassime (21). Denis Shapovalov (22) and Alex de Minaur (22) are also still part of the new generation.

“This is one of the important features of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament: the battle between the established order and emerging talent,” said Richard Krajicek. “This year, too, this battle will undoubtedly lead to some exciting matches.”

Follow the tournament live from the first to the last match

The tournament can be watched live in its entirety, on TennisTV and many international channels and on Ziggo Sport Tennis and NOS in the Netherlands.

“We are very happy that all games can be followed live,” said Richard Krajicek. “With these players the best games can be seen every day and the sports fan will not go wanting. We can’t wait to broadcast the tournament in the most spectacular way possible.
