The players of the ATP return to Hamburg in a tournament that is no longer a Master Series Event, which could spell trouble for this tournament, held since 1892. The move to the ATP World Tour 500 Series will cause this ages old tourney to seem unattractive to big name players like those who have won the tournament in years past, or competed, such as Nadal, Federer, Guillermo Coria, Marat Safin, Gustavo Kuerten and Albert Portas. Just because the tournament has moved down a level however, certainly does not mean its worth watching. You can catch this exciting tennis action right here in high quality video streams and feeds on www.watchlivetennis.org.
This tournament is from July 18th to the 26th and is played on the clay courts of Am Rothenbaum in Hamburg, Germany. The Masters Series was created in 1990, which changed the name of this tournament from the German Open to the Hamburg Masters. Previous winners for this event, while it was the Hamburg Masters were Nadal in 2008, who's runner up was Roger Federer, a three set victory that ended 7-5, 6-7, 6-3. In the year before that it was exactly the opposite lineup, with Federer first and Nadal second, and another three set victory. In 2006, Tommy Robredo was the singles champion and then Federer had the title two years in a row, in 2005 and 2005 beating Richard Gasquet and Guillermo Coria respectively.
As for the doubles champions, it was Canadian Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic in 2008 who beat the American brothers Bob and Mike Bryan. However, the Bryans were able to take their own win in 2007 against the match-up of Paul Hanley and Kevin Ullyett. The previous year it was Hanley and Ullyett who took the win, making it seem – at least for the past few years – that if you have a win at the Hamburg Masters, you'll be runner-up in the final the following year – at least for the doubles. Don't miss the Hamburg Open July 18th to the 26th. Get your membership today and watch live.
