Stockholm Open 2016 has come to an end. Although the memory will live on for a long time.
International stars like Gaël Monfils and Juan Martin del Potro made their mark on the media interest as well as on the ticket sales.
Almost 40 000 spectators experienced the magic in the Kungl. Tennishallen. Our visitors got to witness an international breakthrough in Mikael Ymer, 18 years of age. He prospered against names such as Fernando Verdasco and Ivo Karlovic. The victory in the doubles together with his big brother, Elias, was equally as unexpected as it was pleasing. A change of trend for Swedish tennis on home soil.
Stockholm Open has become a Swedish tradition. With that said the tournament has grown into an international matter. Through the tv broadcasts the tournament reaches out to 165 million tennis enthusiasts around the world. The big crowd-pleaser, Juan Martin del Potro met an abundance of expectations with his first tournament victory in almost three years. A comeback which made an echo far beyond Stockholm and Sweden.
