In addition to Olympic champion Alexander Zverev, at least three other German players are represented in the main draw of the Munich clay court tournament in the veterans Philipp Kohlschreiber and Jan-Lennard Struff as well as Daniel Altmaier.
As tournament director Patrik Kühnen announced on Friday, 38-year-old Kohlschreiber will receive one of the wildcards for the traditional event from 23 April to 1 May.
Kohlschreiber, who is at the end of a long tennis career, has won the event at the Iphitos facility three times. “I am really looking forward to it. In Munich, I play with good length. My topspin jumps higher,” the Augsburg player explained his success.
Krawietz/Mies in doubles
Struff is aiming for his first ATP title in Munich. Last year, the Davis Cup professional only lost to Nikolos Basilashvili in the final. The Georgian is back again this year, as is top ten player Casper Ruud from Norway, who just defeated Zverev at the tournament in Miami. In doubles, two-time French Open winners Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies will serve.
