Highlights of the
Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open 2018
The fourth edition of the Banque Eric Sturdza Open tournament has lived up to all its promises. It enabled the public to applause history-making champions such as Stan Wawrinka and David Ferrer, and presented players who accomplished great things that year, like Italian player Marco Cecchinato, semi-finalist in Roland-Garros, or Romanian player Marius Copil, finalist in the 2018 Swiss Indoors of Basel against Roger Federer.
It was Hungarian player Marton Fucsovics who won the 2018 tournament, picking up the first prize in his career, thirty-eight years after the success of his compatriot Balazs Taroczy during the first ATP tournament ever played in Geneva. In doubles, the title went to Croatian player Mate Pavic and Austrian player Oliver Marach.
Building on the success of this fourth edition, which also featured Fabio Fognini of Italy, one of the most popular players on the circuit, the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open tournament has become one of the key events of the spring season. It allows players to refine their preparation for the great rendezvous of Roland-Garros. This proximity between the two tournaments, along with the lessons drawn since 2015, have proved extremely beneficial for the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open. Which, by the quality of its infrastructure and the beauty of its site, seduces not only players, but also tennis governing bodies - as attested by the distinction awarded in 2017 by ATP to salute the tournament’s development.
Highlights of the
Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open 2016
For its 2016 edition, the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open tournament was fortunate to have an exceptional ambassador: the great champion Stan Wawrinka. Wawrinka, who rose to victory in 2016 for his first Swiss title at the Parc des Eaux-Vives, holds the extraordinary record of three Grand Slam titles during an era in which Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray remain otherwise unchallenged.
The 2016 edition reunited top ATP players around Stan Wawrinka: notably Marin Cilic, David Ferrer, John Isner, Sam Querrey and Steve Johnson.
