Who is playing ATP Budapest in 2017?
The draw for the inaugural Gazprom Hungarian Open features two players that contested the ATP Bucharest final last year - the tournament which has now been relocated to Budapest as Hungary plays host to an ATP World Tour event for the first time.
Fernando Verdasco and Lucas Pouille played out the 2016 Bucharest final, with the Spaniard coming away with a 6-3 6-2 triumph. However it was Pouille who really kicked on for the remainder of what would be a breakout season, with the Frenchman picking up his first career title in Metz and making back-to-back grand slam quarter-finals at Wimbledon and the US Open, along with a semi-final finish at the Rome Masters as a lucky loser, results that propelled him into the top 15.
Pouille hasn’t reached those levels of success so far in 2017, but he nevertheless comes into the Gazprom Hungarian Open as the top seed, and he will be confident of securing a second ATP title in Budapest.
Gilles Simon is another name to watch out for in Budapest. The French veteran won the title three times in Bucharest and remains a wily competitor on his day, and if he can sink his teeth into the tournament, he will be among the contenders competing for the silverware. You can also never discount the towering Ivo Karlovic, who despite not playing his best on clay, is always a threat with that destructive serve.
Paolo Lorenzi, Viktor Troicki and Diego Schwartzman - while a little way down the rankings table - are also in with as good a chance as anyone of picking up the title, while young guns Daniil Medvedev and Borna Coric will also be looking to make a statement.
And then we’ve got enigmatic talents Alexandr Dolgopolov and Martin Klizan, both of whom are easily capable of putting together marvellous runs all the way to the title.

About the Hungarian Open
Replacing the Romanian Open in Bucharest on the ATP World Tour calendar for 2017, the Gazprom Hungarian Open offers the opportunity for players to fine-tune their clay court games before the two big Masters 1000 events in Madrid and Rome, and of course the culmination of the European clay court season, the French Open at Roland Garros.
Played alongside the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell (a prestigious ATP 500 tournament), the Hungarian Open has attracted a solid field for its inaugural edition, especially when you consider top players are either resting after Monte Carlo and before Madrid, or also have the opportunity to play for more prize money and ranking points in Barcelona.
It marks the first time Hungary has hosted an ATP World Tour event, and should help boost tennis in the region, who’s highest ranked player is 25-year-old Marton Fucsovics at 147.
“Hungary has never before staged an ATP World Tour event and this has been the major goal for years now. Being able to host an ATP World Tour event from next year is a great responsibility, but as well a great opportunity. We are very much looking forward to welcoming players and spectators in April 2017,” said Attila Richter, General Secretary of the Hungarian Tennis Association.
Played in Budapest, the picturesque capital of Hungary and widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, 32 singles players and 16 doubles pairings will compete for the first ever Gazprom Hungarian Open title, played at the National Training Centre in Mikoviny, Budapest.
