"I’m thrilled to be back on court. The tournament in Düsseldorf is simply great and I’m looking forward to playing there," explained 29-year-old Tipsarevic. Tournament Director Dietloff von Arnim is delighted the 2010 Davis Cup winner will be in the line-up: “Janko Tipsarevic is a world class tennis player and he competed at last year’s premiere. It’ll be great to have him back at the Rochusclub."
Tipsarevic, who has won four career singles titles on the ATP circuit, is a well-known face in Düsseldorf. The former Top 10 player will be appearing at the Grafenberger Wald venue this year for fifth time. He claimed the Tennis World Team Championship title in 2009 and 2010.
Tipsarevic will be aiming high at the second edition of the ATP 250 Tournament: "The Düsseldorf clay has always been a good and successful place for me. I’ve got great memories of the excellent atmosphere at this beautiful venue. I’m hoping that - with good performances in Düsseldorf - I can get back amongst the world’s best again."
