In the coming days, the organizers of the MercedesCup will reassess the situation together with the ATP, the TC Weissenhof and their partners and sponsors.

“I must start by saying that we have accomplished all the requirements to hold this year’s edition of the MeredesCup. The grass courts at the TC Weissenhof are in splendid condition and ready for play shortly. Due to the Corona pandemic we constantly face new challenges, while the sport events industry has to show great flexibility anyway in these times. We nevertheless want to stick to our scheduled date and kick-off the grass court season from 5th to 13th of June”, says Edwin Weindorfer, tournament director of the MercedesCup and CEO of the e|motion group.
