Players to Watch
#1 Seed Looks to Turn Things Around - Felix Auger Aliassime
Just weeks after beating Novak Djokovic in the Laver Cup, Felix Auger Aliassime looks to make his season into one of new memories.
The #1 Canadian in the world at the moment, Felix is very close to qualifying for the ATP Finals but will need things to go his way not only this week, but for the weeks to come.
The hard-hitting style of FAA always provides some entertaining tennis, emphasizing his quick attacking ability and winning prowess.
Felix should be able to convert his opportunities on a surface such as hard indoor, because of his ability to hit big serves and winners.
There are going to be a ton of hungry opponents wanting to upset his crown this week and it will be up to him to block out the noise and try to clinch another ATP title.
Keep an eye on Felix’s delivery and motions throughout the first few days of this week to better understand his true capability of winning the tournament.
Home Favourite In his Environment - Matteo Berretinni
Matteo Berrettini is back on his preferred surface of the fast hard courts indoors within his nation of Italy.
The former Wimbledon Finalist has had an inconsistent season up to this point due to the injury problems he’s had to deal with over the past few months.
His tour year has been characterized by starts and stops which is never good if you’re trying to catch a wave of good form.
Matteo will be more comfortable with the conditions in Firenze and will have a firm crowd support with every match that he is able to play on court.
If he is locked in and can remain healthy, there is a real chance of a return title for MB this weekend.
Starting to Thrive on the Tour - Lorenzo Sonego
Another Italian home favorite will be Lorenzo Sonego.
The all-court game that Sonego possesses has finally translated to a title, winning his first indoor 250 at Metz just a week ago.
Sonego can frustrate opponents with his variety of shots and also hold his service very quickly compared to most others.
His ability to create points out of nothing will be crucial when he comes up against tricky opponents this weekend, and there is no doubt he will employ some gamesmanship as well.
Lorenzo, like many other Italians, will have a great time at this tournament and hopefully use the crowd as a boost of energy.
