Wroclaw Open: ATP Tennis In Wroclaw – For Free!

International tennis is coming to Wroclaw next week in the shape of the Wroclaw Open, a men's ATP Challenger tournament held at Hala Orbita. 

The competition, which takes place between the 15th and 21st February, will be completely free of charge for spectators.

As an ATP Challenger event, the top ranked players in the world are forbidden from entering – so sadly you won't have the chance to catch megastars like Djokowic, Federer, Nadal or Murray in action. Polish number one Jerzy Janowicz will not take part either. 

Even so, there are a handful of players who have been in the top 50, as well as a number of rising stars. Russia's Mikhail Youzhny, who was ranked in the top 20 as recently as 2014, is on the entrance list. As are Daniel Evans and James Ward, both of whom were part of Britain's Davis Cup winning team last year. Polish doubles specialist Lukasz Kubot is another who will feature in the line-up. 

Arguably the most attractive player to watch at the Wroclaw Open is nonetheless Dustin Brown, whose extravagant and unpredictable playing style became the talk of the first week of Wimbledon after his sensational victory over Rafal Nadal.
