Tributes were paid to ATP Executive and Chairman Brad Drewett on Saturday with a moment of silence at the BMW Open in Munich and Portugal Open in Oeiras. Drewett passed away on Friday, aged 54, at his home in Sydney, following a battle with Motor Neurone Disease.

ATP staff and tournament representatives were in attendance as the ATP World Tour 250 events honoured Drewett and his achievements in tennis. In Munich, Tournament Director Patrik Kuhnen and organiser Carl-Uwe Steeb were among the officials on court as the stadium announcer addressed spectators with a tribute to Drewett and the lasting legacy he leaves behind. Both tributes were aired on national television.
