The Citizen Cup was a women's tennis tournament played on outdoor clay courts. It was the seventh edition of the Citizen Cup and was an Tier II tournament on the 1993 WTA Tour. The tournament took place from April 26 to May 2 at DTB Rothenbaum Turnier GmbH, in Hamburg, Germany.
This tournament would later attract infamy for being the location where then World No. 1 Monica Seles was stabbed during a singles quarterfinal match with then World No. 14 Magdalena Maleeva by an obsessed fan of Steffi Graf, Günter Parche. The stabbing prompted an increase in security at subsequent tennis events. Seles would not return to professional tennis until August 1995 following the incident, and never played in Germany again.
