ROTTERDAM (ANP) — Tournament Director Richard Krajicek has added one of the ATP Tour’s greatest tennis talents to the ABN AMRO Open roster along with Holger Rune. The 19-year-old Dane was named Newcomer of the Year at the ATP Awards last week.

Rune will make its debut at the 50th edition of the tournament, scheduled for mid-February in Ahoy. The world number 11, who was still outside the top 100 at the start of the year, has won three tournaments this year. Among other things, he was the strongest in the Masters 1000 ATP in Paris.

“The ABN AMRO Open likes to let young talent compete against the established order,” says Krajicek. “In the case of Holger Rune, you might be wondering what category he falls into. After all, at 19, he’s already ranked eleventh in the ATP rankings. year by his colleagues speaks volumes. It is a great reward for the enormous progress he has made this year.”

Krajicek previously announced the arrival of Stefanos Tsitsipas, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Daniil Medvedev and Andrej Roeblev in Rotterdam.
