Best Picks for the 2020 Dubai Tennis Championships Men’s Singles

Dubai is the first event of the ATP 500 doubleheader this week.

Three top 10 players have entered the event, while six of the eight seeded players are in the top 15.

Reigning Dubai champion Roger Federer won’t defend his title, as the Swiss has withdrawn from the event.

Novak Djokovic

2020 record: 13-0, 1 title

2020 prize money: $3,844,836

2019 Dubai Championships Result: Did not participate.

This will be Djokovic’s first tournament since his record-setting eighth Australian Open title.

Back at the top of the ATP ranking, the Serb legend has yet to lose a match this year.

He led Team Serbia to the ATP Cup title in January, defeating Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal along the way.

His road to the Australian Open title included wins over Roger Federer in the semifinals and Dominic Thiem in a five-set final.

A four-time Dubai winner, Djokovic will be making his first appearance at the event since 2016.

While the Serb will be taking on some tough competition, he remains the safest pick by a considerable margin.

Gael Monfils

2020 record: 13-2, 2 titles

2020 prize money: $1,001,575

2019 Dubai Championships Result: Semifinals.

Monfils returns to action in Dubai after taking a one-week break.

The Frenchman was coming off back-to-back titles at the Open Sud de France and at the first ATP 500 of the year, in Rotterdam.

Monfils made it to the semifinals last year, losing to Stefanos Tsitsipas in three sets.

He already has two titles this year in three singles tournaments.

His only losses came against the top 5 players – Djokovic at the ATP Cup and Thiem at the Australian Open.

If Monfils can deliver a third week at this level, he could very well be in the mix for a third title.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

2020 record: 7-4, 1 title

2020 prize money: $519,502

2019 Dubai Championships Result: Runner-up.

After a disappointing start to the year, Tsitsipas recovered well to win the Open 13 in Marseille last week.

The young star was coming off two early exits at the Australian Open and at the Rotterdam Open.

Tsitsipas did not drop a set on his way to his first trophy of the year and successfully defended the title.

The Greek reached the Dubai final last year, losing to Roger Federer in straight sets.

Tsitsipas has one win over a top 10 opponent this year, defeating Alexander Zverev at the ATP Cup.

Filip Krajinovic

2020 record: 7-4, 0 titles

2020 prize money: $256,067

2019 Dubai Championships Result: Did not participate.

Krajinovic has two semi-finals appearances in his last two tournaments.

On both occasions, the Serb was eliminated by Gael Monfils.

Krajinovic’s road to the Open Sud de France and the Rotterdam Open semis was quite similar.

The Serb did not drop a single set in his six wins, which includes triumphs over Andrey Rublev and Vasek Pospisil.

Krajinovic is a longshot for this week, but he is an interesting pick to consider if you are looking for an underdog.
