The Libema Open, named for the first time like this in replacement of the previous title sponsor, Ricoh, definitely has a weaker field than the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart. However, it will be an interesting event as 's-Hertogenbosch will mark Andy Murray's comeback on the ATP Tour for the first time since 2017 Wimbledon.
The former world No. 1, who could add a Challenger this month to his schedule, entered the Dutch event with his protected ranking as #39, his current position. Gilles Muller will definitely be one of the favorites as he is the defending champion and reached 2016 final.
On grass last year he had also reached Queen's semifinals and Wimbledon quarters. The two-time champion David Ferrer is absent as he has chosen Stuttgart, but Spain will still have two players, Fernando Verdasco and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez. Filip Krajinovic, Daniil Medvedev, Richard Gasquet will be just some of the outsiders in this event.
