The Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open returned to the Swiss city in 2015 for the first time since 1991. Swiss players have won the event on four occasions, with Stan Wawrinka notably claiming back-to-back titles in 2016 and 2017.

Wawrinka will look to win his third Geneva title in 2019. He faces a field that includes Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters champion Fabio Fognini, Daniil Medvedev, Laslo Djere and defending champion Marton Fucsovics.
