Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas has accepted a wild card entry into the Hamburg European Open, the tournament announced Saturday on their Twitter page. The ATP 500 clay-court event is to be played from 12-18 July.
The World No. 4 reached the final at Roland Garros but lost to Djokovic.
The champion had a surprise first-round exit at Wimbledon as he lost to American Frances Tiafoe in straight sets in the first round.

Tsitsipas sits in the second position in the ATP Race To Turin, holding a 39-10 record on the season. He claimed his first ATP Masters 1000 trophy at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters (d. Rublev) in April and won the Open Parc Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes Lyon title in May.
He will be joined at the tournament by World No. 13 Pablo Carreno Busta and the 20-year-old Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Things did not go according to plans and eventually, Tsitsipas was in danger of losing his fourth place in the rankings at the hands of Alexander Zverev or Andrey Rublev. Nevertheless, both Zverev and Rublev lost in the 4th round and therefore, Stefanos will retain his 4th spot.
Good Luck next week Stefanos.
