What You Need to Know About the 2020 Adelaide International Men’s Singles

Points: 250 for the champion.

Total prize money: $91,625

When: from January 13th to January 18th

Where: Memorial Drive Tennis Center in Adelaide, Australia

Surface: Hard (outdoor)

What’s at Stake?

Adelaide takes over from Sidney as the last Australian tournament before the first Slam of the season.

The city hosts the tournament for the first time, which means that it’s a bit of uncharted territory for the players.

Top-seeded and defending Sidney champion Alex de Minaur has withdrawn from the tournament, which significantly opens up the title fight.

This is the second ATP 250 event of the year and will have a strong field of contenders.

Many players who took part in last week’s ATP Cup will also take part in the event at Adelaide.

Let’s take a look at the best picks for the 2020 Adelaide International men’s singles.

Andrey Rublev

ATP Ranking: #18

2020 Record: 4-0, 1 title

2020 Prize Money: $227,930

2019 Sidney International: Second Round

Rublev won the first ATP 250 tournament of the year, his third career title.

The young Russian has won two of his last four ATP tournaments.

He was also part of Team Russia’s in last year’s Davis Cup, winning all his four matches to help the team reach the semifinals.

Rublev did not make it to the team’s ATP Cup roster this year but went on to win the Qatar Open last week.

He will now have a very good opportunity to add a second consecutive title to start the year.

Rublev had a 14-9 hard court record in 2019, while two of his three career titles have come on this surface.

Pablo Carreño Busta

ATP Ranking: #30

2020 Record: 0-0, 0 titles

2020 Prize Money: $0

2019 Sidney International: Did not participate

A former ATP top 10 player, Carreño Busta has been trying to reclaim his old form.

After a disappointing 2018, the Spaniard ended a two-year drought and won the Chengdu Open in September 2019.

It was also his first title on a hard surface since 2016.

Carreño Busta will be making his 2020 debut at Adelaide, so he could still be a bit rusty, especially coming off a first-round bye.

But his experience, along with his good record on hard courts, make him a very interesting pick.

Félix Auger-Aliassime

ATP Ranking: #22

2020 Record: 1-3, 0 titles

2020 Prize Money: $197,300

2019 Sidney International: Did not participate

The rising star player is still chasing after his first career ATP title.

Auger-Aliassime made it to three singles finals last year but lost all three.

The young Canadian also helped his team to the Davis Cup final, which Canada ultimately lost to Team Spain.

Auger-Aliassime was also part of Team Canada’s ATP Cup effort but did not have a particularly good showing.

He defeated Greece’s Michail Pervolarakis, number 487 in the ATP ranking, for his lone win in four matches.

As the number 2 seed for the Adelaide International, the young star has a good chance at finally lifting his first ATP singles trophy.

Dan Evans

ATP Ranking: #33

2020 Record: 3-1, 0 titles

2020 Prize Money: $236,850

2019 Sidney International: Did not participate

Evans, part of Team Great Britain’s Davis Cup and ATP Cup efforts for the last five years, is still chasing after his first career singles title.

The 29-year old veteran was the Sidney International runner-up in 2017.

He had a solid showing at Sidney again earlier this year in the ATP Cup.

After dropping the first match to Grigor Dimitrov in a close three-setter, Evans went on to win his next three.

His run included wins over rising star Alex de Minaur and ATP top 15 player David Goffin.

Evans recently achieved a career-high in the ATP ranking and is arguably in the best form of his career.

While he is a bit of a longshot, the 2015 Davis Cup champion could be an interesting underdog pick.
