Stan Wawrinka, Lucas Pouille and Tomas Berdych headline the field at the Open 13 Provence in 2018: ATP tennis live from Marseille, 19-25 February.



Who is playing ATP Marseille 2018?

Stan Wawrinka headlines the Marseille field, while Lucas Pouille and Tomas Berdych are other big names in the ATP Marseille draw, live from Marseille on Monday, 19 February. The tournament has been hit by a couple of high-profile withdrawals, with David Goffin pulling out with a freak eye injury sustained in Rotterdam, while defending champion will also be absent. Despite the withdrawals, it's still a very good field in Marseille, led by Wawrinka, who continues his comeback from knee surgery. This is Wawrinka's fourth tournament since his return to the tour- he lost in the second round of the Australian Open, fell to Mirza Basic in the semis in Montpellier, and suffered a shock opening round exit to Tallon Griekspoor in Rotterdam. Safe to say, the isn't yet firinf on all cylinders! Can he put together a solid week in Marseille as his comeback gathers pace?

Wawrinka is joined by French No.1, Lucas Pouille, who already has a title to his name this season following his success in Montpellier. Tomas Berdych is also present, seeking a deep run after being forced to retire from his Rotterdam quarter final with Goffin through illness. Berdych had made an encouraging start to the season, reaching consecutive quarter finals at the Australian Open and Rotterdam.

Roberto Bautista-AgutGilles Muller and Damir Dzumhur are the other top 30 players in the draw, while Russian Next Gen star, Karen Khachanov will also be worth keeping an eye on.

About ATP Marseille


One of the most popular events of the spring European indoors swing, the Open 13 Provence always welcomes strong fields and 2018 is no exception. Home hope, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga returns to defend his title, but he faces stiff competition from a draw packed with talent, including David Goffin, Stan Wawrinka and Next Gen ATP star, Denis Shapovalov.

February is a transitional month in the tennis season, as players settle into the grind of the year after the highs and lows of January in Australia and begin to prepare for the major upcoming events on US hard courts – the Masters 1000 Series events of Indian Wells and Miami in March. Some players opt for the Golden Swing of clay-court tournaments in South America, others choose to sit out most if not all of the month, but the bulk of the top 30 are generally to be found at the indoor hard-court tournaments of Europe – a well-established mini-swing incorporating 250 events in Montpellier and Sofia, the 500-level ABN AMRO WTT in Rotterdam and ending at the Open 13 Provence.

First played in 1993, the Open 13 Provence was the brainchild of ex-pro and Marseille native Jean-Francois Caujolle, who remains tournament director to this day, with the number ‘13’ referring to the designation given to the Marseille area in the French national indexing system. Played at the Palais des Sports in Marseille, which features a 5,800-seat centre court, the event offers 250 ranking points to the champion and 150 to the runner-up, with €645,485 on offer during the week.

The Open 13 Provence event has proved extremely popular over the years, routinely attracting multiple top-20 players. European players have traditionally flourished at the event, starting with Switzerland’s Marc Rosset’s back-to-back titles in 1993-4 – Rosset would win the Open 13 once more in 2000, becoming the first player to triumph in Marseille three times, although he was later joined by Sweden’s Thomas Enqvist (1997-8, 2003). 

Rosset’s opponent in that 2000 Marseille final was a certain Roger Federer, who would go on to win the title in 2003. Other luminaries to capture the Open 13 Provence title include Boris Becker (1995), Yevgeny Kafelnikov (2001), Andy Murray (2008), Robin Soderling (2011) and Juan Martin del Potro (2012). 

No fewer than six French players have taken the title in Marseille, beginning with Guy Forget - who would go on to captain the French Davis Cup team and serve as tournament director at the French Open – in 1996. Forget was followed by Fabrice Santoro in 1999, Arnaud Clement in 2006 and Gilles Simon took the first of his two titles in 2007. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has three titles in Marseille (2009, 2013, 2017)  and Michael Llodra (2010) rounds out the roll-call of homegrown favourites to lift the trophy at the Open 13 Provence.

In between Simon's second title in 2015 and Tsonga's third triumph in 2017, there was a significant success for controversial Australian, Nick Kyrgios, who stormed through the draw without dropping a set to claim the first ATP World Tour title of his career, defeating 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic.

Amongst other illustrious past champions are Roger Federer (2003), Andy Murray (2008) and Boris Becker (1995).

Will Marseille crown another familiar champion in 2018, or will we have a surprise winner, Shapovalov perhaps, at the Open 13 Provence?
