In November, they met in the championship match of the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan. This week in ’s-Hertogenbosch, though, Next Gen ATP Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas and finalist Alex de Minaur could meet in the semi-finals of the Libema Open in The Netherlands.

Tsitsipas and De Minaur are two of the seven #NextGenATP players in the 28-player draw as the grass-court season kicks off on Monday with the ATP 250 in ’s-Hertogenbosch and the MercedesCup another ATP 250, in Stuttgart.

The top-seeded Tsitsipas is looking to become the first player this season to win titles on all three surfaces following his triumphs this year on hard court in Marseille and on clay in Estoril.

De Minaur, on the other hand, is hoping to jumpstart his injury-plagued 2019. The 20-year-old Aussie missed the ATP Masters 1000 event in Miami, the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters and the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell because of a hip injury. He's only 11-7 on the season.
