Tennis Week Ahead: Sinner return a highlight of star-studded week

Another busy week lies ahead on both the ATP and WTA tours with hard-court action in Rotterdam, Delray Beach and Doha, as well as an intriguing clay-court tournament in South America.

Here is an overview of the tennis taking place this week.

All eyes on Sinner in Rotterdam

OddsJannik Sinner 5/4, Andrey Rublev 7/1, Grigor Dimitrov 10/1, Hubert Hurkacz 10/1, Alex De Minaur 12/1

In what is arguably the biggest tennis event of the week, all eyes will be on Jannik Sinner. The Italian heads to Rotterdam fresh from having won his first ever Grand Slam at the Australian Open, beating Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev en route to the title. 

Sinner has been making waves on the ATP tour for some time though, having made the last four at Wimbledon last summer before title wins in China and Austria late last year and a run to the final of the ATP World Tour Finals. 

He is the form player on tour right now and is suitably priced to win the Rotterdam Open at 5/4. The Italian was runner-up in the event last year, losing in the final to Medvedev, who is not set to feature this time around. Instead, 

Andrey Rublev is thought to be his closest challenger at 7/1, while Grigor Dimitrov, who was an Open 13 finalist on Sunday, is 10/1. Australian Open quarter-finalist Hubert Hurkacz is also 10/1 to go the distance, while Alex De Minaur, who made the fourth round in Melbourne, is 12/1.

Americans lead the charge at Delray Beach

OddsTaylor Fritz 9/4, Frances Tiafoe 11/2, Tommy Paul 11/2, Adrian Mannarino 11/1, Miomir Kecmanovic 12/1

The Rotterdam Open, an ATP 500 event, may take centre stage this week but there is an intriguing ATP 250 event on the cards in Delray Beach too. It is an American-dominated affair with Taylor Fritz (9/4), Frances Tiafoe (11/2) and Tommy Paul (11/2) leading the way in the betting. 

Fritz especially will be eager to impress after making the quarter-finals at the Australian Open, ultimately losing to world number one Novak Djokovic. 

Fritz is defending champion at Delray Beach, having claimed the title for the first time last year with a 6-0 5-7 6-2 final win over Miomir Kecmanovic, who is 12/1 to come out on top this time around. 

Paul, meanwhile, will be looking to build on his recent run to the final of the Dallas Open, while Tiafoe will want to get back to winning ways after a run of three defeats and three wins from his first six matches of 2024.

Star-studded lineup heads to Doha for first WTA 1000 event of season

The Qatar Open, otherwise known as the WTA Doha, takes place this week and the first WTA 1000 event of the season has attracted 18 of the women's top 20 players. The only major absentees are Aryna Sabalenka and Jessica Pegula, who was runner-up at the event last year. 

Iga Swiatek leads the way as top seed and is looking to win the event for the third successive year but the Pole made a poor start to the year with a third-round exit at the Australian Open. She also finds herself in a tricky quarter of the draw, with the red-hot Jelena Ostapenko on course to face her in the last eight. 

Ostapenko has made the final in singles or doubles of all four tournaments she has played this year and will be one to keep an eye on, while Abu Dhabi Open finalist Elena Rybakina could also be dangerous. 

Second seed Coco Gauff, however, looks like Swiatek's biggest threat. It has been a strong six months or so from the US Open champion, who won the ASB Classic and made the last four of the Australian Open last month, while she was also a quarter-finalist in Doha in 2023.

Alcaraz headlines clay-court action in Buenos Aires

It may not be as attractive as some of the other tournaments on the cards this week but there is reason to look forward to the Argentina Open, an ATP 250 event taking place on the clay courts of Buenos Aires. 

Carlos Alcaraz is the headline name, looking to defend his title in the Argentinian capital, while British ace Cameron Norrie, who lost to Alcaraz in the final in 2023, is seeded second. 

South American aces Nicolas Jarry, Francisco Cerundolo and Sebastian Baez will also all be looking to make the most of familiar surroundings this week.
