Zverev Leads Field In Munich; All You Need To Know

After missing out on hosting last year’s tournament due to COVID-19, the BMW Open is back in Munich, Germany for its 53rd edition. Germany’s highest-ranked player, World No. 6 Alexander Zverev, leads the field, followed by Top 30 stars Jannik Sinner, Casper Ruud, Dusan Lajovic and Aslan Karatsev.

Zverev won the ATP 250 title in 2017 and 2018, and he’ll be seeking his second ATP Tour title of 2021, having won in Acapulco in March. Two more Germans join the 23-year-old in the main draw, Dominik Koepfer and Jan-Lennard Struff. 

#NextGenATP star Sinner recently cracked the Top 20 for the first time on the heels of his semi-final breakthrough run at the Miami Open presented by Itau. 

Note: The 2021 BMW Open will be held behind closed doors due to COVID-19 precautions.
