A trio of Top 10 players – Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev, and Fabio Fognini – headline the 2019 Hamburg European Open, an ATP Tour 500 clay-court tournament. 

Zverev, who was born in Hamburg, returns to his hometown tournament for the first time since 2016. He achieved his best result here five years ago as a 17-year-old, when he made a run to the semi-finals (l. to Ferrer). World No. 4 Thiem will look to improve upon last year’s quarter-final finish, while Fognini will look to reclaim the title he won in 2013.
