The superstars who’ll lead the field at the next edition of UTS have been revealed
Former world No 1 Daniil “The Chessmaster”Medvedev, Olympic gold medallist Andrey “Rublo” Rublev, and 2022 Wimbledon runner-up Nick “King” Kyrgios lead the field for the second instalment of UTS – Ultimate Tennis Showdown – in Frankfurt, Germany, this September.
They will be joined by Gael “La Monf” Monfils, Diego “El Peque” Schwartzman, Benoit “The Rebel” Paire and Reilly “The Bot” Opelka at the Suwag Energie Arena between September 15th and 17th – with one more star set to be announced.
Frankfurt will mark the second stage of the 2023 UTS season after Los Angeles (July 21st to 23rd). The remaining two legs of the UTS Tour will take place in Asia/Middle-East (at the start of December), before a Grand Final between 8th and 10th December, for which the Frankfurt stage winner will be automatically
qualified. The final locations will be announced soon.
Ticket sales for Frankfurt are now open via the website, with prices as low as 29 euros – and the format of the competition means that all ticket-holders are guaranteed to see each of the eight players in action on both September 15th and 16th.
Schwartzman, Monfils and Kyrgios are also in the field for UTS in LA, along with Taylor Fritz, Wu Yibing, Frances Tiafoe, Ben Shelton and Alexander Bublik.
