Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Dear tennis friends,


Once again in 2019, the organizers of the MLP-Cup managed to set up a $25,000 world ranking tournament in little Nußloch. With great love for the sport, the MLP-Cup has matured beyond the borders of the region and our Badischer Tennis Association/Badischen Tennisverbands into an outstanding sporting event. The excellent conditions for players and spectators, and the great events of the MLP-Cup are always on par with the great sport that has been going on at this tournament for years. We are very happy that the MLP-Cup plays an important role in the field of elite sports in our region and that tennis is also present on the international top level during the cold season. As the past shows, spectators are often offered the stars of tomorrow.


We wish the players and coaches much success, the executives good luck in the implementation, and the spectators a lot of fun and excitement at this year's edition.


Thanks are due to all helpers, sponsors and supporters. Above all, Dr. h. c. Manfred Lautenschläger for his long-term commitment, who supports this great sporting event significantly and can now look back on a tradition of 16 years.


Warm Greetings to all






Stefan Bitenc
