General Information


The tournament has been held since 1916. In 1978 it was included in the ATP Grand Prix Series, and in 1979 it received its present name.
From 1990 to 2001 and from 2003 to 2008 the tournament belonged to the second most prestigious category of ATP tournaments, ATP Gold (until 1998 - ATP Championship Series). In 2008 the prize fund of the tournament (in addition to the car awarded to the winner) was about 550,000 euros. In 2002 and after the change of the ATP Tour grid in 2009, the tournament belongs to the base category of ATP tournaments (since 2009 - ATP 250).
Since 2015, for the first time ever, the tournament changed its surface from clay to grass. The timing of the tournament has also changed. It was moved from the traditional time in the calendar in July (at the end of the Wimbledon tournament) to early June (after the French Open).


Winners and finalists


Since 1978, only two tennis players have managed to win the Mercedes Cup more than twice. They were Gustavo Kuerten, who won the doubles title in 1997 and singles in 1998 and 2001, and Tomas Schmid, who won the doubles title three times from 1978 to 1989. Of the tennis players who have won the Mercedes Cup twice, only Thomas Muster did so twice in a row, in 1995 and 1996.
The host of the competition has only once managed to win the Mercedes. This was done in 1991 by Michael Stich. Another four representatives of Germany and the united Germany during this time won the tournament pairs, with Christopher Kas and Philipp Kohlschreiber did it together in 2008.
In recent years, the singles tournament is dominated by representatives of Argentina and Spain, who won it seven times in the last decade.
