STARNBERG, July 24, 2023

Another three-tournament week on the ATP Tour features action in Hamburg, Atlanta and Umag, where Casper Ruud of Norway, US-American Taylor Fritz and Swiss veteran Stan Wawrinka compete, respectively.

Ruud, Andrey Rublev of Russia and defending champion Lorenzo Musetti from Italy compete at the Hamburg European Open, an ATP 500 clay-court event being held in the heart of Hamburg at the Rothenbaum Tennis Center, which features a retractable roof stadium. Alexander Zverev will also be part of the line-up. The Hamburg native will start his home campaign against Alex Molcan from Slovakia.

Fritz top seed at Atlanta Open

Fritz heads to the Atlanta Open looking to rediscover his best form after a modest grass season. Among those joining the top seed in the field are two-time titlist Alex de Minaur from Australia and #NextGenATP home favourite Ben Shelton, while Atlanta native Christopher Eubanks competes with confidence after winning the Mallorca title and his run at Wimbledon.

World-class tennis and entertainment in Umag

Jiri Lehecka is the top seed at an ATP Tour event for the first time at the Plava Laguna Croatia Open Umag, where the Czech could face 2015 champion Dominic Thiem from Austria in the second round. Another former winner, Stan Wawrinka, is the sixth seed, while home favourite Marin Cilic competes for the first time since January after knee surgery.

Alongside the tennis action, the tournament devotes special attention to off-court entertainment taking place in the Stella Maris complex in the coastal town in Istria. Umag Music Nights feature more than 100 hours of great performances by famous DJs. Besides the splendid nightlife, visitors can experience the Istria Gourmet Festival and have a chance to sample culinary delights and taste award-winning local wines.
