The Gerry Weber Open will take place once again this year, and these ATP 250 Series players will be continuing rain or shine. The roof of the Centre Court at the Gerry Weber is retractable in less than two minutes time which means that the games can continue even if it begins to rain, keeping players – and the 12,300 seats in the stadium – dry.
The Gerry Weber has been around since 1993, named so for the clothing line sponsor of the tournament. The playing grounds consist of four outdoor grass courts and the Stadium is located in Halle, Germany.
Past winners of this tournament include names like Thomas Berdych who won in 2007 against runner-up Marcos Baghdatis and Berdych was runner up the previous year to Roger Federer, who not only took home the title in 2006, but also consecutively since 2003, his runner up then being Nicolas Kiefer. Most recently it was again Roger Federer, winning in 2008 with Phillipp Kohlschreiber losing after two sets with a final score of 6-3, 6-4.
The 2008 match was a great one for Federer, after getting slammed at Roland Garros, coming into the tournament with confidence and style, not losing a single set – in fact not even losing a serve. Federer is a favorite on grass and 2008 was no exception, either serving up a point or continuing to control the ball if it came back, making the 2008 Gerry Weber Open his 59th straight win on grass.
Roger Federer bowed out of the 2007 tournament, after a grueling match with then number two Rafael Nadal in the French Open Final. He cited fatigue as the reason, but went on to take home the Wimbledon title every year except 2008, when Nadal took it home, but surprisingly in 2007, after apparently taking the time the Gerry Weber was played to recover fully and take home the 2007 title.
The Gerry Weber Open happens from Monday, June 8th to Sunday the 14th, and players are competing for a total of $750,000 in prize money.
