The organizers of the ATP-Rasenturnier in Stuttgart reacted to the move of the French Open. The Grand Slam event now takes place at a time from 30th May to 13th June 2021, which collides with the tournament on the Weissenhof.
“It is a solitary entrance by Roland Garros,” tournament director Edwin Weindorfer told the “SID”: “You have to accept it this way, We will therefore not change the week.”
We want to keep to the planned period from 7th to 13th June and evaluate the new situation in the next 48 hours with the ATP and the tournament partners. All the conditions for the tournament were created.” We firmly believe that we will still get a good starting field,”said Weindorfer.
Among other things, the plans foresee performances by Germany’s number one Alexander Zverev, who could not play in Stuttgart at a quarter-finals match in Paris. Weindorfer and his team are now working to be able to react as flexibly as possible to the results in Paris when compiling the starting field.
