After the one week’s break that followed Australian Open, the ATP Tour returns this week with three ATP 250 tournaments.
Of course, the interest of the Greek fans is focused on Stefanos Tsitsipas, who, after his stunning presence at the Australian Open, chose to take part in Sofia Open in Bulgaria.
The relatively short distance and low cost of the trip gives many Greeks the opportunity to see the great star of Greek tennis and help him with their presence in the stands to reach the title.
Tsitsipas starts from No. 2 of the board and will make his debut in the second round of the tournament. The toughest rival is Karen Khachanov, who is in No. 1 on the board and a position higher than Stephanos in the world rankings. The tournament also includes Roberto Bautista Agut, who Stephanos won at Australian Open round of 16, Daniil Medvedev, who has already gone to a final this year (Brisbane International) and the allways dangerous Gael Monfils.
On Monday also starts, Open Sud de France, in Montpellier, France, with Lucas Pouille and David Goffin, stand out.
Finally, in Argentina, the Cordoba Open will be held, which is also the first tournament of the year played in clay. There, the two Italians, Fabio Fognini and Marco Cecchinato, are the big favorites, while the locals Diego Schwartzman and Leonardo Mayer will try to exploit the presence of their compatriots on the platforms and reach as far as possible.
