ATP Montpellier Players 2019

Held a week after the Australian Open finishes, the Open Sud de France usually commands a strong field for an ATP 250 tournament, with players eager to start their seasons off with a bang.

Former World No. 1 and three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray is the headline act as the 2019 Open Sud de France gets underway from February 3.

Set to make his debut in Montpellier, Murray has been in the wars for the majority of the last two seasons, shutting down his 2017 campaign after Wimbledon due to hip soreness before finally biting the bullet and undergoing surgery in January 2018.

The Scot returned to action during the grass season later in 2018, but Murray never really got going, and after just six tournaments and ranked outside the top 250, he pulled the curtains down on his year in September after Shenzhen. Murray instead opted for an intense training block in the United States to finish 2018, giving himself the best possible preparation for the Australian summer to launch 2019.

Determined to claw his way back up the rankings as swiftly as possible, Murray confirmed he would be playing in Montpellier towards the end of 2018.

"Lots of great memories playing indoors in France, looking forward to playing Open Sud de France in Montpellier for the first time next year,” Murray said on his Facebook page.

Stay tuned as more players for the 2019 Open Sud de France are announced in the coming weeks!

About ATP Montpellier

After January’s fierce battles in the heat of the Australian summer, the focus of the ATP World Tour switches to European indoor hard courts in February and ATP Montpellier is a popular place to start the European indoor swing for the top players of men’s tennis. While some opt for the 'Golden Swing' of clay-court tournaments in Latin and South America, many of the ATP World Tour's top players instead choose Europe and the indoor hard courts of Montpellier and Rotterdam - well-established, prestigious events which provide the perfect opportunity to perhaps brush off a disappointing start to the season and start afresh, with 250 ranking points and €501,345 in prize money on the line. 

Played since 1987, the Open Sud de France relocated to Montpellier from Lyon in 2010 and in 2012 moved to a new, exciting multi-purpose venue called the ARENA which features a total capacity of 14,000 and seats 7,500 during the tournament.

The crowds that have shown up at the new Montpellier venue have been rewarded with some top-flight tennis in recent years and the upcoming 2017 Open Sud de France looks set to be no exception.

Ever since Yannick Noah captured the inaugural Open Sud de France title in Lyon in 1987, French players have had a strong presence at the tournament with seven French players winning the title over the years – Noah (1987), Arnaud Clement (2000), Paul-Henri Mathieu (2002), Richard Gasquet (2006, 2013, 2015 and 2016), Sebastian Grosjean (2007) and Gael Monfils (2010, 2014).

International stars have also shone at the Open Sud de France, with John McEnroe winning in 1989 and Pete Sampras capturing three consecutive titles in 1991-93 – a feat that has never since been equaled. Yevgeny Kafelnikov (1996), Ivan Ljubicic (2001, 2009), Robin Soderling (2004), Andy Roddick (2005) and Tomas Berdych (2012) have all captured the title at the Open Sud de France in Lyon and Montpellier.

The 2015 edition of the Open Sud de France saw 2013 champion Richard Gasquet reclaim the title, following the disappointment of finishing as the runner-up to compatriot Gael Monfils in 2014. Gasquet faced fellow Frenchman and wildcard Lucas Pouille first up, before he overcame sixth ranked Denis Istomin to set up a final rematch with defending champion Monfils in the semis. However, this time Gasquet would avenge his 2014 loss in straight sets 6-4, 6-3, before going on to claim the title against fifth ranked Jerzy Janowicz (Janowicz retired at 0-3 in the finale).

Gasquet returned to the Open Sud de France in 2016. Despite having missed the beginning of the season, including the Australian Open, due to injury, Gasquet became the first man since Pete Sampras in 1993 to win back-to-back ATP Montpellier titles after second seed Marin Cilic was stunned in the second round by rising star Alexander Zverev. Zverev went on to make the semifinals but was defeated by former champion Paul-Henri Mathieu, who in turn fell to Gasquet 5-7, 4-6 in an all-French final. Zverev would go on to make amends in 2017 as he experienced a breakout season that saw him crack the world’s top four - and it all started in Montpellier as he toppled reigning champion Gasquet in straight sets in the final. Gasquet would make it back to the final once more in 2018, but unfortunately he finished second best for the second season running, with compatriot Lucas Pouille emerging triumphant with the silverware.
