Tel Aviv To Host ATP 250 Event In November
The ATP Tour has today announced the awarding of a single-year tournament licence to Tel Aviv for 2023.
The Tel Aviv Watergen Open, an indoor hard-court ATP 250 event, will be staged in the Tel Aviv International Convention Centre from 5-11 November, the same week as the Moselle Open in Metz, France. Qualifying will be played 4-5 November.
It is the second consecutive year that the ATP Tour will visit the Israeli city. Last September, Tel Aviv hosted an ATP Tour event for the first time since 1996. Novak Djokovic, Marin Cilic, Diego Schwartzman and Dominic Thiem all competed at the Tel Aviv Watergen Open, with top-seeded Djokovic taking the title.
Tel Aviv was the venue of ATP Tour legend Jimmy Connors' final career singles title in 1989, while Aaron Krickstein still holds the ATP record for the youngest winner of a Tour event with his 1983 triumph in the city when just 16 years old.
