Kiki Bertens will participate again next year in the Libéma Open, the grass tournament in Rosmalen. The organization also reports on Tuesday that Daniil Medvedev has been committed to the men's tournament.
28-year-old Bertens was also on the list of the Libéma Open this year, but the tournament was canceled due to the corona crisis.
In 2011, the born Wateringse debuted on the Brabant grass and her best result is a final place in 2019. She lost despite five match points from the American Alison Riske. Bertens is currently seventh on the WTA ranking, which has been frozen due to the corona crisis.
With Medvedev, a world top player has also promised to participate in 2021 in Rosmalen. The 24-year-old Russian broke through last year with no less than six final places in a row. He also made it to the final at the US Open, in which he lost to Rafael Nadal, and is now number five in the ATP ranking.

Bertens plays in Berlin in July
Moreover, it is not yet clear when the current tennis season, which has been flat since the outbreak of the corona virus since March, will be resumed exactly.
Last weekend, Novak Djokovic already played at a demonstration tournament in Belgrade, with thousands of people in the stands. Bertens will play a practice tournament in Berlin next month.
At this time, it is certain that no ATP or WTA tournaments will be held until July. The US Open is scheduled for August 31 through September 13, and Roland Garros must be played after that. The Paris clay tournament was postponed in the spring, while Wimbledon was dropped for the first time since World War II.
