[1] Daniil Medvedev – Best Results & Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

Tournament Best Result: Semi-final (2019)

2021 Best Result: Australian Open Final

  • R1: Dusan Lajovic | H2H: Tied 1-1
  • R2: Borna Coric | H2H: Coric leads 4-2
  • QF: Felix Auger-Aliassime [7] | H2H: Medvedev leads 1-0
  • SF: Alexander Zverev [3/WC] | H2H: Zverev leads 5-4
  • F: Stefanos Tsitsipas [2] | H2H: Medvedev leads 6-1

It could be a tricky start for Medvedev as he returns to the tour, after being very much subdued by Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final. Despite reaching the quarter-final and semi-final in his first two years, he was summarily bundled out last year in the first round, so will be keen for a performance that befits a top seed.

Tournament Best Result: R2 (2020)

2021 Best Result: Australian Open Semi-final

  • R1: Egor Gerasimov | H2H: Tied at 1-1 (Incl. Challenger)
  • R2: Hubert Hurkacz | H2H: Tsitsipas leads 6-1
  • QF: Stan Wawrinka [8] | H2H: Wawrinka leads 1-0
  • SF: Andrey Rublev [4] | H2H: Tied at 3-3
  • F: Daniil Medvedev [1] | H2H: Medvedev leads 6-1

After a land-mark win over Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, Tsitsipas was flat against Medvedev and has only ever picked up a win and a loss at Rotterdam, in the past, so will be keen to perhaps improve on that, with his first two opponents having been in action this week.

[3/WC] Alexander Zverev – Best Results & Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

Tournament Best Result: Quarter-final (2016)

2021 Best Result: Australian Open Quarter-final.

  • R1: Alexander Bublik | H2H: First Meeting
  • R2: Lorenzo Sonego | H2H: First Meeting
  • QF: Roberto Bautista Agut [5] | H2H: Zverev leads 4-2
  • SF: Daniil Medvedev [1] | H2H: Zverev leads 5-4
  • F: Stefanos Tsitsipas [2] | H2H: Tsitsipas leads 5-1

It has been a while since Zverev had a decent run in Rotterdam, and has skipped the last two years, and could be looking at a decent run – his first three potential opponents have all been in action this week, with Alexander Bublik having to travel over from Singapore.

 

[4] Andrey Rublev – Best Results & Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

Embed from Getty Images

Tournament Best Result: Quarter-final (2018, 2020)

2021 Best Result: Australian Open Quarter-final

  • R1: QUALIFIER
  • R2: Andy Murray [WC] | H2H: Murray leads 1-0
  • QF: David Goffin [6] | H2H: Rublev leads 2-0
  • SF: Stefanos Tsitsipas [2] | H2H: Tied at 3-3
  • F: Daniil Medvedev [1] | H2H: Medvedev leads 5-0 (incl. Challenger)

One of the top performers last year, Rublev was a pivotal member of Russia’s ATP Cup team but has yet to figure out the puzzle of compatriot Medvedev, who he could meet in the final.

The ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament takes place between 1-7 March (GMT +1 Hour)
