The 2020 FIR World Tour begins on the 3rd of January with the 10. Vienna New Year Classics. Held at Tennis Point Vienna from Friday 3rd – Sunday 5th January, this tournament returns to its special place as the first tournament of the year.
The tournament also boasts a new tournament director in 2020. The popular and well-known Roland Picher is stepping up to host his first international tournament.
Pichler says, “We strive to make the 10th Vienna Classics a prime example for a great start to the year. Will Arnaud Genin and Christine Seehofer be able to reclaim their title as last year’s winners? Or will it be a new competitor? We are looking forward to exciting games and a smooth tournament.”
