Stuttgart Grass-Court Transformation Underway

Stuttgart, Germany

MercedesCup© MercedesCupCourt No. 18 is undergoing a makeover and will switch from clay to grass by the 2014 MercedesCup.

Court No. 18 at the Weissenhof Tennis Club is on its way to becoming the new Grand Stand court at the Weissenhof Tennis Club, as the MercedesCup in Stuttgart prepares to host an ATP World Tour grass-court tournament in 2015.

Under the supervision of the ground staff from the All England Club, construction began immediately following the conclusion of the clay-court tournament in July.

The Grand Stand court will be ready for the 2014 tournament, when an exhibition match will be held. Four other courts - Centre Court, ENBW Court, Court No. 12 and No. 13 - will be converted from clay to grass following the 2014 tournament.

In March, the ATP Board of Directors approved the MercedesCup’s request to switch to a grass court event. The tournament will take place in the lead up to Wimbledon, in the week following Roland Garros.
