Stefanos Tsitsipas and Denis Shapovalov will compete at the upcoming ATP500 in Rotterdam next week.

Both players didn’t perform that well in the current ATP250 in Sofia (Tsitsipas) and Montpellier (Shapovalov) as both lost as early as in the quarters after receiving a bye in the first round.


Stefanos is trying to access the top10. Currently ranked no.12, the Greek lost in the Sofia quarters at the hands of a great Gael Monfils.

In Rotterdam, Tsitsipas will be seeded no.3, and he has the following projected path.

R1  – Dzumhur
R2  – Haase/Kukushkin
1/4 – Goffin/Monfils
1/2 – Khachanov/ Medvedev
Fin – Nishikori/Raonic

Last year, Stefanos lost in the first round of the qualifications in Rotterdam at the hands of Martin Klizan.


Denis had a good start in Montpellier after he defeated an in-form Marcel Granollers. However, the Canadian lost in the following round by Pierre-Hugues Herbert 7-5 7-6 (4).

This is Denis’s projected path in Rotterdam

R1  – Qualifier
R2  – Nishikori
1/4 – Bautista Agut
1/2 – Raonic/Pouille
Fin – Tsitsipas/Medvedev/Khachanov

Denis didn’t play this event last year.
