Rotterdam (ANP) – Alexander Zverev will appear at the APN Amro Open in Rotterdam next month. The 25-year-old German, who has missed most of 2022 with an ankle injury, is ranked 13th in the world. In 2020 he was in the finals of the US Open.
For Zvere, this will be his sixth appearance at Ahoy, where he secured a wild card as a teenager. In 2016 she reached the quarterfinals, her best result at a major tennis tournament in the Netherlands.
“It’s good news that Zverev is back on track,” tournament director Richard Krajicek said. “In 2022 he looked to be taking the last step to absolute peak but he was very unlucky with injury. You want to see players of his exceptional ability. It’s great to have him coming our way after Australia.”
Zverev recently returned from a serious ankle injury at Roland Garros in his semi-final against Rafael Nadal. After two defeats in the United Cup, he is still waiting for his first win of the year.
Grigor Dimitrov will compete in Rotterdam. The 31-year-old Bulgarian is world No. 28. He was in a final in 2018 in which Roger Federer turned out to be a formidable force.
Pole Hubert Hurkacz and Pablo Carreño Busta from Spain will also compete in Rotterdam from February 13 to 19. The arrivals of Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrej Rublev, title holder Félix Auger-Aliassime and Daniil Medvedev are already known.
