STARNBERG, July 26, 2021

Casper Ruud has won a tournament in each of the past two weeks. Will the Norwegian star make it three in a row at the Generali Open in Kitzbühel?

Ruud made the semi-finals at this clay-court ATP 250 in his only previous appearance two years ago. The 22-year-old, who is the top seed this week, will have to be on the top of his game against a tough field, which includes 10th seed Carlos Alcaraz. The #NextGenATP Spaniard lifted his first ATP Tour trophy on Sunday in Umag.

Other players to watch include second seed Roberto Bautista Agut, third seed Filip Krajinovic as well as #NextGenATP players Thiago Seyboth Wild and Holger Vitus Nodskov Rune.

Raonic leads the field in Atlanta

Jannik Sinner will look to make an impressive debut at the Truist Atlanta Open. The #NextGenATP Italian is seeded second at the ATP 250 and will chase his second title of 2021.

The 19-year-old faces a tough field, which is headlined by top seed Milos Raonic, who will compete for the first time since Miami. The Canadian star is also making his first appearance in Atlanta.

There are 12 Americans in the singles draw, and three of them — Reilly Opelka, Taylor Fritz and John Isner — are seeded. Isner is a five-time champion at this tournament, and Aussie Nick Kyrgios, who lifted the trophy in 2016, will also be in action.
