Players to Watch
Former Champion Looks to Hold the Crown - Stefanos Tsitsipas
After a successful runner-up week in Astana to kick off the indoor season for Stefanos Tsitsipas, the sky seems like the limit for the Greek #1.
His play has largely been inconsistent in 2022, but he looks confident in both his backhand and serve once again.
Although he would’ve loved to win the title against Novak Djokovic in Astana last week, he now comes back to a surface and tournament that he is so familiar with.
Winning the tournament in 2018, as one of his maiden ATP titles, will surely give Tsitsipas confidence to do well going forward this week.
He will play some great offensive tennis and holding back is not an option. Look for Stefanos to do well and take advantage of the byes he receives as the #1 seed in the process.
Change of Fortune in October? - Dennis Shapovalov
After posting some horrible results in most of 2022, Dennis Shapovalov is looking to reverse the negativity.
His play over the past month or so has been exceptional, starting with a final in Seoul just over two weeks ago.
The one-handed backhand of the Canadian is always a threat on fast surfaces when he’s on, but his unforced error count in 2022 has skyrocketed to all-time highs.
There is so much to talk about regarding the talent that this man possesses when he’s on the upward trend, and this week could be a game changer for him mentally.
Last Year’s Champion looks to repeat - Tommy Paul
After winning his first ever tour title in 2021 in Stockholm, Tommy Paul has made a name for himself on the tour among the best of them.
Peaking in the top thirty this season, Paul has all the game and weapons to do well under these fast conditions.
He loves being the aggressor in rallies and puts on a show of variety when needed.
Tommy truly has an arsenal of all shots in the book, which is what makes him a must-watch. He won the 2021 iteration in style over Dennis Shapovalov and will be looking to repeat in 2022.
