15 March, 15:09

Elise Mertens will make her appearance at Libéma Open immediately after Roland Garros. The top Belgian player in both singles and doubles has confirmed her arrival.
‘I am very happy that I will participate in Libéma Open again. Every year I look forward to the first grass tournament of the year. The tournament is close to home and there are always many Belgian spectators. Hopefully I will see a lot of familiar faces and fans show up again every day.’

The 28-year-old Mertens has appeared five times before at the only WTA tournament in the Netherlands. The quarter-final in 2016 was the best singles result for the Leuven-born player. In the doubles, Mertens grabbed the title together with Demi Schuurs in 2018.
In the singles, Mertens has ranked among the top 30 in the world for years and was once on the edge of the top 10 with place 12. In doubles, she is currently the global number one.

The men’s tournament welcomes titleholder Tallon Griekspoor and Grand Slam champion and former world number one Daniil Medvedev.
More players will be announced in the coming period.
