The Russian won the St. Petersburg Open and Vienna Open, losing two sets in 10 matches.

The 23-year-old began 2021 by helping Russia win the ATP Cup. Rublev beat Yoshihito Nishioka, Guido Pella, Jan Lennard Struff and Fabio Fognini.

Feliciano Lopez Form


Feliciano Lopez had a poor season in 2020. Including a first round exit at the Australian Open, he went 3-9 in 12 matches and failed to get past the second round in nine consecutive tournaments.

The 39-year-old is clearly coming to the end of his career. He did manage to keep it close against Rafael Nadal at the Paris Masters in November, going down 4-6 7-6 6-4, but is unlikely to beat any of the top guns in men’s tennis.

Lopez began 2021 at the Great Ocean Road Open, losing 6-4 7-5 to World No. 82 Kevin Anderson in the first round. 

The Spaniard beat local wild card Li Tu 6-7 6-4 7-6 6-4 in the Australian Open first round. 

Lopez battled past World No. 35 Lorenzo Sonego in the second round, winning 5-7 3-6 6-3 7-5 6-4 in 3 hours 18 minutes. He saved 9/11 break points and converted 3/3.
