ABN AMRO World Tennis Rotterdam 2019
This tennis tournament has been one of the most prestigious sporting events in the Netherlands for years.
Since 1974, ABN AMRO has been the sponsor, which in the beginning was part of the WCT–Series (World Championship of Tennis), the precursor of the ATP World Tour.
Over the years the tournament has grown enormously. Back in 1974, an estimated 46,000 people attended, and in 2013, a record number of 116,354 attended the tournament!
Today the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament is broadcast to 186 countries!
The Rotterdam tournament is high on the list for the top players such as Roger Federer, Gael Monfils and Jo Wilfried-Tsonga.
Federer won the 45th tournament in 2018, by beating no 5 in the world, Grigor Dimitrov.
Rotterdam is a major port city in the Dutch province of South Holland.
The Maritime Museum traces the city’s seafaring history, and the Pilgrim Fathers Church, where pilgrims worshipped before sailing to America, is worth a visit.
The Delfshaven area is home to canal-side shopping and after being almost completely reconstructed following the 2nd World War, the city is now known for bold & modern architecture.
