The 2023 Stuttgart Open will welcome two excellent tennis players Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev who accepted wild cards.

The ATP event in Stuttgart played on grass is shaping up to be a really strong event. Top seed Taylor Fritz will be replaced by another player as Stefanos Tsitsipas will be the number one seed after accepting a wild card entry into the event.

The entry list will also welcome another top player Alexander Zverev who also accepted a wild card entry into the event. It features now a very strong entry list, probably far better than last year which saw Matteo Berrettini take down Andy Murray in the final.

This year we'll have Berrettini back but we won't see Murray in Baden-Wurttemberg. The tournament director of the event also called the BOSS Open, Edwin Weindorfer was ecstatic to welcome Zverev into the draw.

The opening days of the main draw promise to be a display of world-class tennis. The participation of Alexander Zverev boosts this year's BOSS OPEN tremendously. We are very happy that the Olympic champion from Tokyo will play at the Weissenhof. The entry list also includes two Wimbledon finalists in Nick Kyrgios (2022) and Matteo Berrettini (2021)

Tournament director on Zverev

Zverev himself added that he was very happy to come back to Stuttgart in hopes of getting a good start to his grass season. Playing on native soil in front of his fans was always a delight for him and hopefully, it will continue the great tennis he showed off at Roland Garros recently.

I am very pleased to be part of this year's BOSS OPEN. The tournaments in Germany have a great significance for me. I love playing in front of my fans. I come to Stuttgart with the goal of getting off to a good start to the grass-court season.

Zverev on participating

Tsitispas will be looking to forget his Roland Garros performance with a quick turnaround on the grass in hopes of continuing to get better on the surface. It's not been a great surface for him in the past but after lifting a trophy last year, Tsitsipas is looking to keep getting better on it.

The Weissenhof is a club with a lot of tradition and I am looking forward to starting my grass court preparation here next week.
