The annual ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament is the biggest tournament of its kind in the Netherlands. Past winners include tennis greats such as Roger Federer, Jo-Wilfred Tsonga, Stan Wawrinka Tomáš Berdych and Juan Martín del Potro.
In March 2021 the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament will be held in Rotterdam for the 48th time. Ever since its inception in 1972, the Rotterdam Open has been growing steadily. In 2018, the 45th edition of the World Tennis Tournament drew 122,846 spectators; a record for the Rotterdam-based ATP World Tour 500 series tournament.
Tickets to ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament still valid in 2022
Given the current epidemiological situation and the associated measures, it is less and less likely that a substantial audience will be able to attend. Given the necessary preparation time, it was decided to move the already sold tickets to the 49th edition in 2022.
The step taken now does not mean that there will be no audience by definition. In the event that this does prove possible, people who already have tickets will be contacted. Because capacity is expected to be limited, this will be announced at a later stage and the decision has already been made to move the 2021 tickets to 2022.
Tennis fans can also follow the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament from home. All matches can be followed live on Ziggo Sport, but also on Ziggo Sport Totaal, which will open one of its channels especially for this edition, so that non-subscribers can follow the tournament in its entirety. The final weekend will also be broadcasted by NOS.
