Hungarian Open 2020 preview
This year will be the fourth edition of the Hungarian Open. This tournament is an ATP 250 clay court event and will run from April 20th – April 26th, 2020.
Based in Budapest, the Hungarian Open is the first time that Hungary have staged an ATP event. These championships replaced the ATP 250 tournament in Bucharest, Romania.
Marin Cilic took a wildcard and made his Budapest debut in 2019. He lost his first match to Pablo Cuevas, but as former Grand Slam Champion, Cilic is still an attraction and will be the biggest draw in the tournament. He made the fourth round of the Australian Open and has shown in the past that he can find his form at any given time.
Cilic’s countryman, Borna Coric could make a run for the title. The 23-year-old has not had the best start to this season as he lost in the first round of the Australian Open, but he has reached a career high of 12 in the world and has two career titles to his name.
2018 champion, Marco Cecchinato has a chance to regain the title. The Italian made a name for himself when he upset Novak Djokovic at the 2018 French Open. All three of Cecchinato’s titles have come on outdoor clay.
