ATP Kitzbuhel 2018 tournament schedule

Who is playing ATP Kitzbuhel in 2018?

The very last ATP World Tour clay-court event of the 2018 season attracts a strong field of clay-court specialists and stalwarts looking to spend one more week on their favourite surface before the tour moves on to the punishing hard courts of North America

Austrian star Dominic Thiem will be the main man at the 2018 Generali Open as the top 10 star attempts to win his first ATP World Tour title at home. Currently ranked No. 8 in the world, Thiem has already picked up two ATP titles on clay this season at the time of writing in Buenos Aires and Lyon, while he also made his first Grand Slam final at the French Open - falling to Rafael Nadal - and repeated his run to the Madrid Masters final, going down to Alexander Zverev.

Determined to pick up another title on the dirt before the tour heads to North America for the U.S. Open Series, Thiem is certainly the man to beat in Kitzbuhel - but there’s multiple players who will fancy their chances of taking out the home hope.

Defending champion Philipp Kohlschreiber is among that crop of players, with the German veteran enjoying a solid season as he looks to go back-to-back in the Austrian city, while fellow veterans Richard Gasquet and Fernando Verdasco can never be discounted in these sorts of tournaments.

Then we have Gael Monfils, who has enjoyed somewhat of a mini-resurgence over the last month, while clay-court specialists such as Albert Ramos-Vinolas, Nicolas Jarry, Federico Delbonis, Guido Pella and Pablo Cuevas will also be players to watch.

And we can’t forget about the former champions in the draw, including two-time winner Robin Haase (2011-12) and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (2009).

About the Generali Open

The final ATP World Tour clay-court event of the season takes place in the historic Austrian town of Kitzbuhel in late July. 

Part of the late summer swing when the tennis tour returns to European red clay after the short grass-court season and its climax at Wimbledon, the Generali Open has been played in one form or another since 1894. 

The tournament was originally held in Prague when the city was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, played from 1894 until 1914 when the outbreak of World War I suspended the event. When the Generali Open was played once more in 1921, the Austro-Hungarian Empire was no more and Prague had become the capital of the new Czechoslovakia, so the tournament moved to Vienna where it stayed until 1951 (although it wasn’t played between 1938 and 1948 due to World War II). Between 1952 and 1968 the Generali Open moved between various Austrian cities, including Vienna, Salzburg, Portschach, Graz and Kitzbuhel until the tournament found a permanent home in the small medieval town of Kitzbuhel in the Tyrol in 1969 when Manuel Santana claimed the title.

When the ATP World Tour was created in 1990, Kitzbuhel was part of the ATP World Series and became part of the International Series Gold in 1998 before transforming once again to become an ATP World Tour 250 event in 2009. The tournament briefly lost its ATP status, becoming a Challenger in 2010, but returned as an ATP World Tour 250 event in 2011.

Played on outdoor red clay at the Kitzbuhel Tennis Club at an altitude of 762 metres and offering 463,520 euros in prize money, the Generali Open continues to be a popular stop on the ATP World Tour, welcoming back many top players who relish the chance to compete once more on European clay before the tour moves on to the hard courts of the USA and Asia.

Champions at the Generali Open include Roy Emerson (1961), Ion Tiriac (1966), Pete Sampras (1992) and Goran Ivanisevic (1994), while Guillermo Vilas (1977, 1980, 1982-3) holds the tournament record with four victories. In recent years, Juan Monaco (2007), Juan Martin del Potro (2008), Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (2009), Robin Haase (2011-12), Marcel Granollers (2013) and David Goffin (2014) have taken the title, with the 2015 edition of ATP Kitzbuhel going to Philipp Kohlschreiber as the German veteran defeated Paul-Henri Mathieu in three sets in the final.

Thiem became the first Austrian since Jurgen Melzer in 2008 to reach the Kitzbuhel final when he did so in 2014, but was unable to claim the title, falling in three sets to Goffin, and although Thiem won a trio of clay-court titles in 2015 Kitzbuhel wasn’t one of them as he fell in straight sets in the semifinals to eventual champion Kohlscheiber.

Thiem returned at the head of the field in 2016 but suffered a shock early defeat to fellow Austrian - and returning veteran - Jurgen Melzer in his opening match. Defending champion Kohlschreiber fared no better with an early defeat of his own to rising Russian star Karen Khachanov, and the title went to Italian veteran Paolo Lorenzi, who defeated Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili to claim the title - the first Italian to win in Kitzbuhel as an ATP World Tour event since Adriano Panatta in 1975.

German veteran Philipp Kohlschreiber took home the title in 2017, emerging as an unseeded champion as he beat the likes of Jiri Vesely, Dusan Lajovic, Fabio Fognini and Joao Sousa for the title.
