ATP Antwerp Tournament Schedule

ATP Antwerp Players 2018

The third edition of the European Open, taking place from 15-21 October 2018, sees an intriguing field come together in Antwerp to do battle for the 2018 title - including the winners of both of the previous two editions. 

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, champion at the European Open in 2017, returns 12 months later to defend his title - but probably with much humbler expectations. The former world no. 5, whose Antwerp title was the fourth he claimed in 2017, has only been able to play seven matches so far in 2018 and only one of them took place after Metz in February, with an injured left knee keeping him sidelined for the vast majority of the season. 

Tsonga will be playing just his second match of the last eight months when he opens his European Open title defense, but although his ranking has dropped to world no. 75, he will be a huge draw and a popular presence at the tournament when it begins on Monday 15 October.

Tsonga is joined by compatriots Richard Gasquet, the champion at the inaugural European Open in 2016, and Gael Monfils, who like Tsonga has had a difficult time with injury in 2018 but has been able to play a much fuller schedule and will be looking for a strong result in Antwerp. 

But while the trio of Frenchmen are all big names, the honour of being the top seed in Antwerp goes to Australian Open semifinalist Kyle Edmund, the world no. 15. Edmund is looking for his first ATP World Tour title after finishing runner-up in Marrakech this summer.

Fellow top-20 players Diego Schwartzman and Milos Raonic join Edmund in a field which also includes French veteran Gilles Simon and rising American star Frances Tiafoe when the 2018 European Open takes place from 15-22 October.

About the European Open

One of three ATP World Tour 250 events played in a week which marks the beginning of the final stretch of the men's tennis season, the European Open celebrates its third edition in 2018. 

With the Rolex Paris Masters, which marks the end of the ATP World Tour season for those who haven't qualified for the season-ending events in London and Milan, just a few weeks away, the players come into this part of the calendar with a lot of miles on their legs, tired and often battling injuries - but they also come in with every incentive to do well in Antwerp, whether they're hoping to boost their chances of qualifying for the Nitto ATP Finals or the Next Gen ATP Finals or are simply out to make a strong finish to the season. 

Like its fellow occupants of this particular mid-October slot on the calendar, the Stockholm Open and Kremlin Cup in Moscow, the European Open is played on indoor hard courts - in its particular case, the indoor hard courts of the Lotto Arena in the populous Belgian port city of Antwerp.

Belgium's only ATP World Tour tennis event, the European Open was first played in 2016 and welcomed native son David Goffin as its top seed, joined by David Ferrer, Kyle Edmund and Richard Gasquet, who became the first champion at the 250 event when he defeated Diego Schwartzman in the final.

Goffin returned to the European Open in 2017 but was again denied the title - this time by rising Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, who gave early warning of the sensational 2018 that was to follow by upsetting the top seed to make the quarterfinals. It was former world no. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga who took the fourth title of his season in Antwerp, beating Schwartzman - again - in the final.

Offering €660,375 in prize money and featuring a 28-player singles draw and 16-team doubles draw, the European Open continues to be a popular destination for players looking to make a strong start to their European indoor hard-court season in Antwerp.
