Best Picks for the 2020 Rotterdam Open Men’s Singles
January was a slightly unusual month for the ATP Tour, with no 500 level tournaments.
However, the tennis season is back to its usual schedule now, as Rotterdam hosts the first ATP 500 of the year.
The 2020 edition has drawn in some good names, creating some high expectations for this week.
1. Stefanos Tsitsipas
2020 record: 2-3, 0 titles
2020 prize money: $363,114
2019 Rotterdam Open Result: First round.
Having ended 2019 on a high by lifting the ATP Finals trophy, Tsitsipas entered 2020 carrying huge expectations.
But the young Greek star has endured a difficult start to the year.
After dropping two of his three ATP Cup rubbers, Tsitsipas only made it to the third round at the Australian Open.
He will have a good opportunity to bounce back this week.
Tsitsipas enters the tournament as the number 2 seed.
The young star has won all three finals he’s played indoors on the hard surface, including last year’s ATP Finals.
Tsitsipas was upset in the first round last year, losing to Damir Dzumhur.

2. Daniil Medvedev
2020 record: 7-2, 0 titles
2020 prize money: $674,910
2019 Rotterdam Open Result: Semifinals.
Medvedev had an impressive start to his 2020 season.
The young star beat three top 20 players at the ATP Cup, helping lead Team Russia to the semifinals.
He won the first four matches, beating three top 20 players before losing to Novak Djokovic in his semifinals rubber.
At the Australian Open, Medvedev made it to the round of 16, in which he lost to a resurging Stan Wawrinka in a long five-set match.
He will enter this week’s ATP 500 tournament as the top seed, and the only top 5 player in the draw.
Medvedev was eliminated in a three-seater semi-final last year, losing to eventual champion Gael Monfils.
3. Gael Monfils
2020 record: 8-2, 1 title
2020 prize money: $455,440
2019 Rotterdam Open Result: Champion.
Monfils will need to defend his 500 points from last year’s tournament.
The Frenchman is coming off his first title of 2020, having won the Open Sud de France for the third time.
Prior to this, Monfils had made two appearances this year.
He beat Cristian Garin and lost to Novak Djokovic at the ATP Cup, as Team France was eliminated early.
The Frenchman then made it to the round of 16 at the Australian Open, losing to eventual runner-up Dominic Thiem.
His road to the 2019 Rotterdam Open title, as an unseeded player, included wins over David Goffin, Daniil Medvedev, and Stan Wawrinka.
4. Andrey Rublev
2020 record: 11-1, 2 titles
2020 prize money: $525,745
2019 Rotterdam Open Result: Lost in the qualifying.
It looks like 2020 could be Rublev’s big year.
The young Russian was undefeated until the Australian Open, winning the two tournaments he had entered.
Rublev captured the Qatar Open title without dropping a set and then won his fourth career title the following week at the Adelaide International.
He made it to the round of 16 at the Australian Open, achieving a career-best result for the first slam of the season.
Rublev fell to Alexander Zverev in the round of 16, his only loss of the year.
If his hot streak continues, the rising star could add a third trophy this week.
Rublev did not make it to the main draw last year, exiting the tournament in the fourth and final round of qualifying.
