The newly renamed NOVENTI OPEN, formerly the GERRY WEBER OPEN, is one of two ATP 500 tournaments on grass, along with the Fever-Tree Championships at The Queen’s Club in London.
Roger Federer, who has won a record nine Halle titles from 12 finals (63-7 match record), will make his 17th tournament appearance this year. The 37-year-old Swiss will be joined in the 2019 field by fellow Top 10 stars Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev, Kei Nishikori and Karen Khachanov, as well as defending champion Borna Coric. The Croatian recorded Top 5 wins over Zverev and Federer in the semi-finals and final last year to claim his biggest career title.
