ATP Marseille Tournament Schedule

ATP Marseille Players 2019

The Open 13 always attracts a strong field and 2019 is no exception with at least seven of the world's top 30, as well as a heady French contingent, scheduled to appear at the 250 event in Marseille from 18-24 February.

Here are some of the top players who have entered the 2019 Open 13 Provence.

Karen Khachanov (defending champion)
Russia's Khachanov won the second ATP Tour title of his career at the 250-level Open 13 in 2018, defeating Lucas Pouille in the final, and went on to break into the top 10 for the first time after winning Moscow and the Paris Masters. The 22-year-old Russian hasn't found form yet in 2019, going 0-2 in indoor events in Sofia and Rotterdam - will a return to the scene of one of his big triumphs get him going again?

Stefanos Tsitsipas
Ranked one place below Khachanov at world no. 12, Tsitsipas will be a popular attraction at the Open 13 after his eye-catching run to the Australian Open semifinals, which saw him beat Roger Federer among others. Tsitsipas won his first title on indoor hard courts in Stockholm last autumn, can he pick up another in Marseille?

Borna Coric
World no. 13 Coric joins Khachanov and Tsitsipas in representing the younger generation at the Open 13. The Croatian is yet to win a title on hard courts but was a Masters 1000 Series runner-up in 2018, a season which saw him beat Roger Federer twice, win the 500-level Halle title and make the semifinals of Indian Wells. Coric is playing Marseille for the first time since 2015.

David Goffin
Belgium's Goffin, a former top-10 player currently ranked world no. 21, is playing the Open 13 for the first time since making the quarterfinals in 2016. He is looking for the fifth ATP Tour title of his career after having won an indoor hard-court title on French soil before - Metz, in 2014.

Denis Shapovalov
Another youthful talent highlights the Open 13 field in the form of Shapovalov, the 19-year-old Canadian currently ranked world no. 25. Although he has been a Masters 1000 Series finalist, Shapovalov has yet to win an ATP Tour title but he's on good form after an impressive win over Tomas Berdych in Rotterdam - could Marseille be the place he wins his first title?

Fernando Verdasco
Spanish left-hander Verdasco, a former top-10 player possessed of one of the most devastating forehands in men's tennis, comes into Open 13 Provence ranked world no. 26 and is playing Marseille for the first time since 2007.

Gael Monfils
'La Monf' has won Montpellier and Metz, but never Marseille despite reaching the final in 2015 - could 2019 be his year? The world no. 33 is having a good European indoor swing with a semifinal run in Sofia and a quarterfinal (or better) run in Rotterdam, can he bring that form to the Open 13?

Gilles Simon
Two-time ATP Marseille champion Simon returns to attempt a third capture of the trophy he lifted in 2007 and 2015. The famously dogged Simon has already made two 250 semifinals in 2019.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert
The lanky Herbert has already made one ATP Tour indoor hard-court final in 2019, finishing runner-up to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Montpellier - could he go one better in Marseille?

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Three-time winner of the Open 13, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is relishing a very good European indoor swing, having beaten Herbert to win Marseille and made the quarterfinals at least in Rotterdam. Could the charismatic French favourite, in a three-way tie with Marc Rosset and Thomas Enqvist for most Marseille titles, become the first man to lift the Open 13 trophy four times?

All these players and many more are scheduled to appear at the 2019 Open 13 Provence, live from Marseille from 18-24 February.

About the Open 13 Provence

One of five ATP Tour events played in France, the Open 13 Provence brings the European indoor swing to a close as a strong field battle for glory at the Palais de Sports in Marseille.

February is a transitional month in the tennis season, as players settle into the grind of the year after the highs and lows of January in Australia and begin to prepare for the major upcoming events on US hard courts – the Masters 1000 Series events of Indian Wells and Miami in March. Some players opt for the Golden Swing of clay-court tournaments in South America, others choose to sit out most if not all of the month, but the bulk of the top 30 are generally to be found at the indoor hard-court tournaments of Europe – a well-established mini-swing incorporating 250 events in Montpellier and Sofia, the 500-level ABN AMRO WTT in Rotterdam and ending at the Open 13 Provence.

First played in 1993, the Open 13 Provence was the brainchild of ex-pro and Marseille native Jean-Francois Caujolle, who remains tournament director to this day, with the number ‘13’ referring to the designation given to the Marseille area in the French national indexing system. Played at the Palais des Sports in Marseille, which features a 5,800-seat centre court, the event offers 250 ranking points to the champion and 150 to the runner-up, with €645,485 on offer during the week.

The Open 13 Provence event has proved extremely popular over the years, routinely attracting multiple top-20 players. European players have traditionally flourished at the event, starting with Switzerland’s Marc Rosset’s back-to-back titles in 1993-4 – Rosset would win the Open 13 once more in 2000, becoming the first player to triumph in Marseille three times, although he was later joined by Sweden’s Thomas Enqvist (1997-8, 2003) and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (2009, 2013, 2017). 

Rosset’s opponent in that 2000 Marseille final was a certain Roger Federer, who would go on to win the title in 2003. Other luminaries to capture the Open 13 Provence title include Boris Becker (1995), Yevgeny Kafelnikov (2001), Andy Murray (2008), Robin Soderling (2011) and Juan Martin del Potro (2012). 

No fewer than six French players have taken the title in Marseille, beginning with Guy Forget - who would go on to captain the French Davis Cup team and serve as tournament director at the French Open – in 1996. Forget was followed by Fabrice Santoro in 1999, Arnaud Clement in 2006 and Gilles Simon took the first of his two titles in 2007. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has three titles in Marseille (2009, 2013, 2017)  and Michael Llodra (2010) rounds out the roll-call of homegrown favourites to lift the trophy at the Open 13 Provence.

In between Simon's second title in 2015 and Tsonga's third triumph in 2017, there was a significant success for controversial Australian, Nick Kyrgios, who stormed through the draw without dropping a set to claim the first ATP World Tour title of his career, defeating 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic.

In 2018, Karen Khachanov became the first Russian to win the title when he condemned Lucas Pouille to back-to-back defeats in Marseille finals.
