STUTTGART - NOT TAKING PLACE
The MercedesCup in Stuttgart marks the beginning of the extended grass-court swing. The first edition of the tournament was held in 1898 and former champions include Bjorn Borg, Andre Agassi and Rafael Nadal. Roger Federer was crowned champion in 2018, having overcome Canandian Milos Raonic 6-4, 7-6(3) in the championship match. This marked a staggering 98th career title for the Swiss Maestro, and his first on the grass-courts of Stuttgart. Due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, this year’s tournament will not proceed as scheduled.
