Zverev, Murray Headline Field In Cologne; All You Need To Know

All about the ATP 250 tennis tournament in Cologne, Germany

Alexander Zverev leads the way at the bett1HULKS Indoors, the first of two back-to-back ATP 250 indoor hard-court tournaments in Cologne added to the updated 2020 calendar. The 23-year-old German, runner-up to Dominic Thiem last month at the US Open, is looking to win his first title of 2020. 

Andy Murray, who upset Zverev at the Western & Southern Open upon the ATP Tour's return in August, has received a wild card to play in Cologne. The former World No. 1 enjoyed a memorable run on indoor hard courts last October at the European Open in Antwerp, where he claimed his first title since coming back from career-threatening hip surgery. 

Roberto Bautista Agut, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Marin Cilic and Kyle Edmund will also compete for the ATP 250 title in Cologne. Bautista Agut and Auger-Aliassime both played in Germany at the Hamburg European Open ahead of Roland Garros, with Bautista Agut reaching the quarter-finals (l. to eventual champion Andrey Rublev) and Auger-Aliassime the second round.

Here's all you need to know about the Cologne tennis tournament: what is the schedule, where to watch, when is the draw and more.
