    The Tournament:

    The German Open welcomes 32 top singles players and 16 doubles teams to the summer clay-court event as one of the 13 ATP World Tour 500 stops. The tournament is held in the heart of Hamburg at the Rothenbaum Tennis Center, which features a retractable roof stadium seating 13,200 spectators – making it the largest centre court in Germany.

    The Players:

    A strong field will contest Hamburg headed up by experienced campaigners Philipp Kohlschreiber, Benoit Paire and Pablo Cuevas. They are joined by young nextgen hotshot Alexander Zverev.



    About City

    Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and the eighth largest city in the European Union. Its population is over 1.7 million people, and the Hamburg Metropolitan Region has more than 5 million inhabitants. The city is situated on the river Elbe. Hamburg is a transport hub, being the 2nd largest port in Europe, and is an affluent city in Europe. It has become a media and industrial centre, with plants and facilities belonging to Airbus, Blohm + Voss and Aurubis. The radio and television broadcaster Norddeutcher Rundfunk and publishers such as Gruner + Jahr and Spiegel-Verlag are pillars of the important media industry in Hamburg. Hamburg has been an important financial centre for centuries, and is the seat of the world's second oldest bank, Berenberg Bank.

    The many streams, rivers and canals are crossed by some 2,500 bridges, more than London, Amsterdam and Venice put together. Hamburg has more bridges inside its city limits than any other city in the world and more canals than Amsterdam and Venice combined.

    Hamburg is the birthplace of Johannes Brahms, who spent his formative early years in the city, and the birthplace and home of the famous waltz composer Oscar Fetras, who wrote the well-known "Mondnacht auf der Alster" waltz.

    I have two Germans in the final: Kohli and Zverev. I doubt that will really happen but I went with the home court advantage.:)

    Paire out to Gimeno-Traver.... broke 4 racquets in the process. I had a few quid on him, so would be happy to break a few more if he'll send some over.
