The 49th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament will take place from 5 to 13 February 2022. The ticket sales has started.
Tournament Director Richard Krajicek: "With Gaël Monfils spectacle is guaranteed. He won the last two times he played in Rotterdam Ahoy. He is an excellent player on our center court and always knows how to bring out the best in him. But Felix Auger-Aliassime is also a player to look forward to. It would not surprise me at all if he can take the final step in February and conquer his first title at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament."
Gaël Monfils on record hunt in Rotterdam
Gaël Monfils will be on a record hunt in Rotterdam. After his previous tournament victories in 2019 and 2020, he will be hunting for his third title. In doing so, he can be on par with record holder Roger Federer, who is the only one to win the tournament three times.
Monfils has had several outstanding performances during his nine previous participations. He reached the quarterfinals in 2010 and 2015, lost the semifinals to Rafael Nadal in 2009 and the final to Martin Klizan in 2016. His two last participations crowned him with the title. In 2019, he defeated Stan Wawrinka in the final. A year later, he was too strong for Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Auger-Aliassime on the hunt for first title
Felix Auger-Aliassime is one of the most promising talents on the ATP Tour. Although he is only 21 years old, he has been in the global top 100 for over two years. Last month he reached a top-10 position for the first time. He is still waiting for his first tournament victory, but has been close many times. His final appearance at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in 2020 was one of eight occasions when he reached the final.
Six participants have now been announced. Besides Monfils and Auger-Aliassime, these are Stefanos Tsitsipas and Hubert Hurkacz and Davis Cup winners Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev.
