Second Serve


By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Friday February 26, 2021

The draw is set for next week’s ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam, which features Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas as its two top seeds.

Medvedev, fresh off his second Grand Slam final appearance at the Australian Open, where he fell to Novak Djokovic in three sets, will open with Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic, while Tsitsipas, a semifinalist at the Australian Open, will face Egor Gerasimova of Belarus.

There are some great first-round matchups in Rotterdam, with Stan 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka and Karen Khachanov locking horns in the bottom half, while 2009 champion Andy Murray will take on Robin Haase in a battle of wild cards.

Alexander Zverev, seeded third, will face Alexander Bublik, while Felix Auger-Aliassime, seeded seventh, will take on Kei Nishikori in his opening match.
