Two wild cards for the Swiss

As part of its ongoing commitment to promoting Swiss tennis, the Gonet Geneva Open is once again opening its door for Swiss players to compete. Antoine Bellier and Jakub Paul have been awarded a wild card for the doubles. The same Antoine Bellier was also invited by the tournament management to take part in the qualifying rounds.

Dominic Stricker’s first success on the ATP Tour was at the Gonet Geneva Open in 2021. With a back injury, the player from Bern is unfortunately unable to play in this year’s tournament.
Semi-finalist at the ATP 250 Majorca in 2022, Antoine Bellier (ATP 345) will attempt to reach the main draw of the Gonet Geneva Open for the first time. In front of “his” public, the left-hander will have a great card to play. His two titles on the Challenger Tour underline just how dangerous the local player from Geneva can be on a good day.

In the doubles, Antoine Bellier can count on the support of Jakub Paul, who has won four titles on the ITF Tour this year. The Graubünden native won all four alongside Britain’s Ben Jones. He had a great victory at the Gonet Geneva Open in 2022, winning in the 1st round alongside Leandro Riedi against the double team Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares, whose record includes two Grand Slam titles.
