STARNBERG, March 1, 2021

Will Russian star Daniil Medvedev continue his hot streak at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam?

If top-seeded Medvedev reaches the final at the season’s first ATP 500, he will pass Rafael Nadal and climb to a career-high World No. 2 on 8 March. The 25-year-old faces a tough field though, with Alexander Zverev, Roberto Bautista Agut and Felix Auger-Aliassime among the players in his half of the draw.

The second seed in Rotterdam is 2019 Nitto ATP Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas. Other players to watch include former World No. 1 Andy Murray, former World No. 3 Stan Wawrinka and fourth seed Andrey Rublev.

Diego Schwartzman will try to win his first title on home soil this week at the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires. The top seed made the final at this ATP 250 in 2019 and reached the semi-finals last year.

The second seed is Cristian Garin, a Chilean who has won all four of his ATP Tour titles on clay. US-American Frances Tiafoe will play his first clay-court tournament of the year in Buenos Aires, where he is the eighth seed.

Other players to watch include Cordoba champion Juan Manuel Cerundolo, third seed Benoit Paire and fourth seed Miomir Kecmanovic.
