In its third year, the Bad Homburg Open attracts the big names in tennis. The illustrious field of participants is led by world number one, Iga Swiatek.
The third edition of the Bad Homburg Open from June 24 to July 1 will feature the largest number of participants in the tournament’s recent history. It is led by world number one Iga Swiatek. “I’ve heard so many good things about the Bad Homburg Open. Especially about the fans and the atmosphere,” the 22-year-old Pole said, according to a statement from tournament organizers on Wednesday.
Lots of big names
Besides Swiatek, other stars such as double Australian Open winner Victoria Asarenka (Belarus) or US Open winners Bianca Andreescu (Canada) and Sloane Stephens (USA) will be at the start.
The German local heroes are called Tatjana Maria and Jule Niemeier. The girl from Darmstadt Andrea Petkovic, who ended her professional career last year, is playing out of competition this time.
Small but mighty
The women’s tennis tournament in Bad Homburg, just outside Frankfurt, is considered a dress rehearsal before Wimbledon and has gained quite a reputation among professionals in recent years.
This is all the more amazing as it is only a WTA 250 class tournament, so there are not as many world ranking points to earn as in other well-known tournaments. The good organization and the good atmosphere still attract many top players to the Hochtaunuskreis year after year.
