ATP Rotterdam Players 2020
The ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam consistently attracts the world’s best players, and 2020 is no different!
With seven of the world’s top-15 players in the draw, the competition for the first 500 title of the season promises to be fierce – here are some of the biggest names in the field for ATP Rotterdam 2020.
World no. 5 Medvedev’s surge up the rankings was one of the biggest stories of 2020 as he made six consecutive finals during a spectacular run which included maiden Masters 1000 Series titles in Cincinnati and Shanghai and a runner-up finish at the US Open, where he pushed Rafael Nadal all the way in a five-set thriller.
Three of Medvedev’s career titles have come on indoor hard courts including the Tokyo 500 in 2019 and the Russian, who made the fourth round of the Australian Open before bowing out to Stan Wawrinka, leads the draw as the top seed in Rotterdam.
The Greek star has notoriously never won a match in Rotterdam in three previous main-draw appearances – will this be his year to break that streak?
Tsitsipas dazzled on indoor hard courts at the end of 2019 when he claimed the Nitto ATP Finals title and at 21, he’s ranked world no. 6 and one of the biggest rising stars in men’s tennis. Three of his four career titles have come on indoor hard courts – will he pick up another in Rotterdam?
World no. 9 Monfils beat David Goffin, Medvedev and Stan Wawrinka on his way to the title in 2019 and has already picked up a title in 2020 in Montpellier at the Open Sud de France, the sixth of his career to come in indoor hard courts.
‘La Monf’ is always an unmissable addition to any draw and is aiming to become the first player since Robin Soderling in 2010-11 to win back-to-back titles in Rotterdam.
The fourth player ranked in the top 10 to grace the ABN AMRO WTT field in 2020, Belgium’s Goffin finished runner-up to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Rotterdam in 2017 and was a finalist at the Cincinnati Masters and the Gerry Weber Open in Halle in 2019.
Just one of mercurial Italian Fognini’s nine career titles has come on hard courts, but the world no. 11 can still be extremely effective on indoor hard courts, making finals in St Petersburg and Moscow in 2017-18.
Fognini seized his maiden Masters 1000 Series title at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters in 2019.
Roberto Bautista Agut
Spain’s Mr. Consistent, Bautista Agut has already compiled an 8-1 win-loss record in 2020, winning every singles match he played for Spain at the ATP Cup Finals and reaching the third round of the Australian Open before being edged out by Marin Cilic.
Currently ranked world no. 12, Bautista Agut is looking for his first title on indoor hard courts since Sofia in 2017 as he plays in Rotterdam, where he last appeared in 2016, reaching the quarterfinals.
Sidelined by injury which caused him to miss much of the 2018 season and saw his ranking drop outside the top 100 in 2019, Rublev has surged back in style. The 22-year-old Russian won the second ATP Tour title of his career on indoor hard courts in Moscow at the end of 2019 and has already compiled a stellar 11-1 win-loss record in 2020, winning back-to-back titles in Doha and Adelaide and reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open before losing to Alexander Zverev.
About ATP Rotterdam
The first ATP World Tour 500 event of the year takes place on the indoor hard courts of the Ahoy Rotterdam in early February as the jewel of the European spring indoor season welcomes packed fields of top male players year after year.
Taking place a fortnight after the conclusion of the first Grand Slam of the year, top ranked players typically return to action for the first time since the Australian Open in Rotterdam. This is because they usually miss travelling to events in Quito, Montpellier or Sofia after deep runs into the second week at Melbourne Park. However, not all players fly to Rotterdam with others opting to compete in lower tier 250 events simultaneously played in Buenos Aires and Memphis.
Overseen by tournament director Richard Krajicek, the only Dutch man to ever win the Wimbledon singles title, the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament is an extremely popular tournament with the top players as they turn their attention from the battles of the Australian summer and start the long run-up to the back-to-back Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells and Miami.
First played in 1972, the 41 editions of ATP Rotterdam have seen some of tennis’s true legends capture multiple titles. Arthur Ashe set the tone when he captured the first of his three Rotterdam titles at the inaugural event in 1972, followed by legend Jimmy Connors (1978), Bjorn Borg (1979), Stefan Edberg (1987-88), Boris Becker (1992), Michael Stich (1994) and Goran Ivanisevic (1996), while Krajicek himself thrilled the home crowds when he became just the second Dutch man to win the tournament after Tom Okker in 1974 in 1995, defeating Paul Haarhuis in the final. Krajicek would triumph again in 1997.
Over the past decade, there has been no diminishing in the calibre of the players to appear and win at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament as the event evolved into its present 500-level status. Lleyton Hewitt won in 2004, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero in the final, and Roger Federer (2005, d. Ivan Ljubicic) and Andy Murray (2009, d. Rafael Nadal) joined Hewitt before Robin Soderling, the big-hitting Swede and French Open finalist who famously defeated Nadal at the French Open in 2009, won back-to-back titles.
Federer triumphed again in Rotterdam in 2012, defeating Juan Martin del Potro in the final, but the big Argentine captured the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament title in 2013 when he beat Julien Benneteau.
Tomas Berdych snapped a 16-month title drought at the 2014 Rotterdam event, defeating Marin Cilic in the final after coming through a field which included defending champion del Potro, former champion Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Ernests Gulbis and Grigor Dimitrov.
Stan Wawrinka reigned supreme in 2015, ending Berdych’s title defence in three sets in the final, while erratic Slovakian Martin Klizan completed a dream week in Rotterdam last year to emerge with his first ATP 500 title. It was truly an incredible week for Klizan, who saved five match points against Bautista Agut in the quarter-finals and three match points in the semi-finals over Nicolas Mahut. Klizan then recovered from a set down to defeat Gael Monfils 6-7(1) 6-3 6-1 in the final.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga claimed the title in 2017 with a three-set win over David Goffin, while Roger Federer took a late wildcard into the 2018 event and went on to win the title by beating Grigor Dimitrov 6-2 6-2 – a victory that propelled him back to World No. 1. Gael Monfils is the defending champion after the Frenchman beat Stan Wawrinka in the 2019 final.
