The Geneva Open is an annual outdoors clay court tournament held in Geneva, Switzerland. Being a returning tournament after a more than 21 years long hiatus, the open does not have a defending champion.

The tournament did not disappear in the last more than two decades, but it was devoted to a Challenger level event. Now it got its ATP status back and the organizers managed to convince some truly elite players to try their luck there instead of choosing Nice. This year’s event will be the 13th edition (on the ATP level) in tournament’s history.

 

If we take a look at the former winners we can see plenty of all-time greats on the list. The biggest name is without a doubt 11-time Grand Slam champion Bjorn Borg, followed by his eight-time Grand Slam champion compatriot Mats Wilander. Thomas Muster, the 1995 Roland Garros champion and former world number one is also on the list, along with 1992 Olympic champion and 1996 Roland Garros semifinalist Marc Rosset.

Amazingly, the organizers managed to convince two top 10 players to join their efforts during the tournament’s revival, world number nine Stan Wawrinka and world number 10 Marin Cilic. Wawrinka will have the best chance to bring home the vast majority of the €439,405 total prize money which is the same amount that they will give out at Nice.
