When is the ATP Prague Open Challenger 2020?

There are currently two Challenger Tour tournaments scheduled back-to-back in Prague: The I.CLTK Prague Open by Moneta from 15-22 August, followed by the RPM Open by Moneta from 22-30 August.

Both tournaments will be played at the historic I. Cesky Lawn Tennis Klub in Prague.

ATP Prague Challenger Players 2020

ATP Challenger Tour tennis returns for the first time since early March on 15 August when the I.CLTK Prague Open by Moneta begins – the first of back-to-back Challenger tournaments in Prague.

With the lengthy suspension of the ATP Tour, and uncertainties surrounding travel restrictions making many high-ranked players who would usually be playing in the USA at this time of the year reluctant to do so, the Prague Challengers have attracted an incredibly strong field in 2020, including 21 players in the top 150.

Here are some of the top players who have entered the Prague Open and RPM Open.

Stan Wawrinka

Three-time Grand Slam champion Wawrinka will be the star attraction in Prague as he competes in his first Challenger Tour events for a decade.

Wawrinka last played Challenger Tour events in 2010 when he won the Lugano Challenger, but has opted to play the back-to-back Challenger tournaments in Prague instead of travelling to the USA in 2020.

Ranked as high as world no. 3 in 2014, the year he won the first of his three major titles, Wawrinka underwent multiple knee surgeries in 2017 and has been slowly rebuilding his career. He is currently ranked world no. 16 after reaching the quarterfinals of the French Open, US Open and Australian Open in the past 12 months, and last played in Acapulco in February where he reached the quarterfinals.

Jiri Vesely

Currently the only Czech man ranked inside the top 100, world no. 65 Jiri Vesely will be carrying home hopes in Prague.

The powerful left-hander has won seven Challenger Tour titles including three on home soil in Prostejov, as well as ATP Tour 250 titles in Auckland (2015) and Pune, India in January 2020.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert

Another top-100 player on the entry list for the Prague Open is France’s Herbert, who ranked as high as world no. 36 in singles in 2019.

Currently ranked world no. 71, Herbert has reached three ATP Tour 250 finals in singles and made the quarterfinals of Doha and Montpellier in 2020 before the shutdown. He has won four Challenger Tour titles.

The 29-year-old is also a formidable force in doubles – he has completed the career Grand Slam with partner Nicolas Mahut.

Philipp Kohlschreiber

Ranked just a few places below Herbert, German veteran Kohlschreiber may have hit his career-high ranking of world no. 16 back in 2012 but remains a force to be reckoned with at 36.

Possessed of a single-handed backhand, Kohlschreiber has won eight ATP Tour career titles – six on clay – and was a Wimbledon quarterfinalist in 2012. He won his first Challenger Tour title in 2003 and his most recent in January 2020 in Bendigo.

Emil Ruusuvuori

The young man defeated by Kohlschreiber in the Bendigo final will also be in the field for the Prague Open as he looks for the fifth Challenger Tour title of his young career.

At 21, Finland’s Ruusuvuori is at a career-high ranking of world no. 101 and will be raring to go in Prague, hoping to secure his top 100 debut with a strong showing at the back-to-back Challengers in August.

About the ATP Prague Challenger

Prague plays host to the restart of the ATP Challenger Tour in 2020 after a shutdown that has lasted the best part of six months.

With international travel an understandably tricky proposition, the tennis heartland of the Czech Republic have stepped up to create a month-long series of tournaments, beginning with back-to-back Challenger 125 events in Prague before similar tournaments take place in Ostrava and Prostejov.

The I.CLTK Prague Open by Moneta and the RPM Open by Moneta will both be played at the historic I. Cesky Lawn Tennis Klub. The venue was founded in 1893 and located on Stvanice Island in the centre of Prague.

The Prague Open first became part of the Challenger Tour in 1996 when Galo Blanco beat Gustavo Kuerten in the final and 22 subsequent editions have been palyed from 1997-2009 and 2011-16. The Czech Republic’s own Michal Tarbara became the first player to win back-to-back titles in 1998-9, Czech players have won 12 of the 23 editions of the Prague Challenger, most recently Adam Pavlasek in 2016.

Seven of the world’s top 100 players, including Czech no. 1 Jiri Vesely (a former finalist at the Prague Challenger) and three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka, have entered the back-to-back Challenger 125s scheduled to take place in Prague from 15-30 August 2020.
