Swiss tennis fans, rejoice! Canton Vaud native Stan Wawrinka will be back this summer for the J. Safra Sarasin Swiss Open Gstaad. After a five-year absence from the tournament, Wawrinka will make Gstaad his home from 21 to 29 July 2018.
There is a high level of anticipation as Wawrinka looks forward to the event. He says that playing in the Bernese Alps in front of his home crowd “is a great motivation and even at this 11th participation, fills me with great joy.”
Wawrinka has always attracted a sizeable fan base to his events here, where he reached the final in 2005 and won the semi-final in 2008. In addition to his participation, the Open will also feature last year’s winner, Fabio Fognini (ITA, ATP 19), Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP, ATP 14) as well as the Russian hopefuls and finalist of Next Gen ATP Finals Andrey Rublev (ATP 31).
This year there are several discounts that will help families to better attend. Teenagers and young adults up to 25 years old receive a 50% discount on all tickets, while children up to 10 years old are free. Tickets are available from CHF 75 upward for the final, and on Family Day Tuesday, 24 July families of two adults and unlimited children may visit for a total price of CHF 130.
