The Rotterdam Open is a professional men’s tennis competition held indoors on hard courts. It is commonly known by its sponsor name, ABN AMRO Open, and formerly known as the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. The Rotterdam Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands, hosted the annual event as it began as a part of the ATP Tour 500 series.
The first competition was held in 1972, and all-time champion Arthur Ashe won it. The Rotterdam Open has grown steadily throughout the years, securing ABN AMRO sponsorship in 1974 and entering the ATP Tour in 1990. One of the top 10 most popular events in the Netherlands, it is now an ATP 500-level competition.
Rotterdam Open 2023
The 2023 Rotterdam Open will take place from February 13–19, and it always attracts a competitive field of athletes. The ABN Amro Open has given birth to champions Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Lleyton Hewitt, Goran Ivanisevic, and Yevgeny Kafelnikov.
But while Felix Auger-Aliassime is the reigning champion in 2023, younger players demonstrated their strengths throughout the previous two tournaments. Last year’s final was won by the Canadian over Stefanos Tsitsipas, and both players will return in 2023.
Andrey Rublev, semifinals in 2022 and finalist in 2021, also hope to continue his winning streak at the competition. Many more highly-ranked players who are eligible to compete are on the entry list. Holger Rune, Alexander Zverev, and Daniil Medvedev are among those vying for the honor.
All three wild cards, Hubert Hurkacz, Jannik Sinner, and Borna Coric, will also want to leave their imprint. One of the wild cards for former world number one Andy Murray, and the other went to two-time Rotterdam champion Gael Monfils. Tim van Rijthoven, a home player, received a wild card, and Stan Wawrinka entered the competition using his protected ranking.
