Germans Philipp Kohlschreiber, Benjamin Becker and Tobias Kamke will appear at the Power Horse Cup in Düsseldorf from 19-25 May 2013. Advanced ticket sales for the ATP World Tour 250 clay-court tournament began on 6 December.
“With Kohlschreiber, Becker and Kamke in the line-up, it means three German top tennis players will be competing at the Rochusclub. It’s great news and we’re very happy,” said Tournament Director Dietloff von Arnim.
Kohlschreiber, a brand ambassador for title sponsor Power Horse, said, “The Rochusclub offers the best possible conditions and the atmosphere is simply unbelievable. I’m really looking forward to the tournament.”
One month ago, World No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic also confirmed his participation. The 28-year-old Serbian competed in three ATP World Team Championships in the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia and won his nation the title in 2009 and 2012.
Von Arnim promises other top international players will compete. “We are currently in a lot of discussions and I’m positive we’ll have more good news soon,” he said.
