The most striking name in the gentlemen’s tournament is Andy Murray. The former number one of the world will make his comeback in the ATP Tour after an absence of nearly a year. The threefold Grand Slam champion did not play after Wimbledon due to a hip injury. It will be the 30-year-old’s first time out at a grass tournament outside the United Kingdom.
Title defender and grass court specialist Gilles Muller (photo) is also one of the favourites to win the title of the ATP 250 tournament. Young Russians Karen Khachanov and Daniil Medvedev are ready and eager to join the top. The top of which former top 10 players Richard Gasquet and Fernando Verdasco are part for many years. A player to look out for is Filip Krajinovic. The talented Serb had much injury problems in the past, but since last year he is climbing the rankings. Robin Haase will uphold the Dutch honour.
There are still three wild cards available for the ATP 250 tournament. The organisation will announce in a later stage who will receive one.
