Chris Kermode, the ATP Executive Chairman and President, presented Gerry Weber Open Tournament Director Ralf Weber the ATP European Award of Excellence for the best fan experience on Centre Court Monday evening.

"I'm proud of this honour," said Weber. "This is also an impressive recognition of our tennis-entertainment concept."

Kermode, who took a tour of the facilities mid-afternoon, said, "The Gerry Weber Open offers the fans a great tennis and entertainment program. It is noteworthy that 12,500 spectators came on Monday for the tournament."

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal and six-time Halle champion Roger Federer headline this year’s event. In 2015, the Gerry Weber Open will become an ATP World Tour 500 tournament.
