The AIG FZ FORZA Irish Open 2023 will take place in Dublin, Ireland, from November 15 to November 18, featuring top-seeded and home favourite Nhat Nguyen, who will be in the spotlight in the men's singles draw.

Nhat reached the quarterfinals at the Hylo Open 2023 earlier this month, putting up a fierce fight against Chinese Taipei’s Chou Tien Chen, eventually losing 21-19, 20-22, 18-21. 

The Irishman has expressed his excitement about playing in front of his home crowd.

“It’s exciting, of course. It’s a really well-run tournament so I’m really looking forward to it. I will try my best to prepare for it. It’s one of my goals to perform my best at my home tournament. It comes with pressure because everyone you know is there, but pressure is a privilege so I’m looking forward to giving my best on court. Result doesn’t matter, I just want to give it all in front of my home supporters”. 

Other notable players in the men’s singles draw include rising star, Alex Lanier. The Frenchmen will look to build on his semifinals run at the Hylo Open 2023.  

Here's the schedule:
-15th November – 09:00, Qualification
-16th November – 09:00, Preliminary rounds (1st & 2nd)
-17th November – 10:00, Quarterfinals and 17.00, Semifinals
