Mischa Zverev, Kevin Krawietz/Andreas Mies receive wildcards into Halle

Germany tennis player Mischa Zverev is set to make his 10th main draw appearance in Halle as he has received a wildcard by the tournament organizers, per Florian Heer. The 31-year-old has never made a deep run in Halle despite making so many appearances but he has had three quarterfinal showings.

Zverev, a former world No. 25, will be hoping to regain a bit of form in Halle and end his nine-match losing streak. Zverev, now ranked at No. 114 in the world, didn't make a good start to his grass season as he picked up a 6-3 6-0 loss to French Jo Wilfried Tsonga in the Stuttgart first round.

Meanwhile, French Open men's doubles champions Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies have been handed a doubles wildcard into Halle. Krawietz, 27, and 28-year-old Mies are set to debut as a pair at the Halle event. Krawietz and Mies captured their maiden Grand Slam title this past Saturday after beating France's Jeremy Chardy and Fabrice Martin in the French Open final. Krawietz and Mies will be motivated to make a positive start to their grass season in front of their home fans.
