After the successful premiere last year, the Danube Upper Austria Open (ATP 100 Challenger) is entering the second round. In addition to last year’s winner Jurij Rodionov, Frenchman Gael Monfils will also serve in Upper Austria. The organizers managed the biggest coup with Dominic Thiem.

“It is not a matter of course that players like Dominic and Gael are brought to an ATP Challenger in Austria. After his exit in Miami, it was already clear that he might return to Challenger level in the short term. Dominic celebrated his comeback at our tournament in Marbella last year, and we’ve always been in contact since then,” explains tournament director Florian Leitgeb.

“The fact that the Challenger in Mauthausen was accepted was very short notice. Moritz (note: Thiem), who has now taken over the management agenda, called me this morning. We quickly got down to business and came to an agreement.” The Danube Upper Austria Open takes place before the French Open, and the game is played on clay courts like in Paris.
