NOVENTI OPEN: All You Need To Know
The newly renamed NOVENTI OPEN, formerly the GERRY WEBER OPEN, is one of two ATP 500 tournaments on grass, along with the Fever-Tree Championships at The Queen's Club in London.
Roger Federer, who has won a record nine Halle titles from 12 finals (63-7 match record), will make his 17th tournament appearance this year. The 37-year-old Swiss will be joined in the 2019 field by fellow Top 10 stars Alexander Zverev and Karen Khachanov, as well as defending champion Borna Coric. The Croatian recorded Top 5 wins over Zverev and Federer in the semi-finals and final last year to claim his biggest career title.
