    The Tournament:

    The first edition of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, held in 1974, was won by Dutch tennis ace Tom Okker. Tennis fans in The Netherlands had to wait until 1995 for another Dutchman, Richard Krajicek, to title at the indoor hard-court event. Winners in the intervening years have included illustrious players, such as Arthur Ashe, Jimmy Connors, Björn Borg, Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg. Since then, stars such as Roger Federer, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Murray have all lifted the trophy. Src: ATP

    The Players:

    Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka were late withdrawals from the Rotterdam field, but the lineup remains a strong one. Marin Cilic is the top seed and he is joined by Dominic Thiem and David Goffin.

    Tomas Berdych and in-form Grigor Dimitrov will also be competing for the title currently held by Martin Klizan. Klizan is back to defend.

    About Rotterdam

    Rotterdam is a major port city in the Netherlands' province of South Holland. The Maritime Museum's vintage ships and exhibits trace the city's seafaring history. The 17th-century Delfshaven neighborhood is home to canalside shopping and the Pilgrim Fathers Church, where pilgrims worshiped before sailing to America. After being almost completely reconstructed following WWII, the city is now known for its bold, modern architecture.

    Pretty good field even with the withdrawal of Nadal and Wawrinka. A lot better than last year.

    Good battle today between Thiem and Zverev today. I was only able to watch parts of it, but saw a lot of great play from both. Thiem seemed able to find his way into Zverev's serve and game and stick to his game plan, which wasn't working in the first set. He was avoiding Sasha's bh, which made him uncomfortable. But he adjusted.
