The EMPIRE Futures Trnava tournament is going to take place from 3rd to 10th August at the TC EMPIRE Trnava tennis centre. Like in the last year, there are interesting names in the main draw. On the acceptance list, you can find the names of Karol Beck and Ivo Klec of Slovakia.

Karol Beck is a former No. 36 player in the ATP rankings that he achieved in August 2005. He is going to play at the EMPIRE Futures Trnava tournament for the first time in his career. This season, he has two titles from the Futures tournament - Saint-Raphael (France) and Antalya (Turkey). He is a doubles winner, too, with Maximilian Neuchrist of Austria.
