I've Got Some Unfinished Business! Must-See 2023 Predictions
Have you ever wondered how ATP players think the season will unfold and which of their peers they believe is due for a standout year or to crack the Top 10?
Last week we learned that Rafael Nadal, Jack Draper, and Thanasi Kokkinakis believe that Jannik Sinner will claim his first ATP Masters 1000 title this season. What will other say in part two of the fun 2023 predictions series? ATP sat down with Cameron Norrie, Andrey Rublev, Casper Ruud, Diego Schwartzman, Ben Shelton, Frances Tiafoe and Alexander Zverev to get their thoughts.
Norrie cracked a smile when he said, “I want to make some decent predictions and not just wing it!” when asked who will make their Top 10 debut this year.
According to the Briton and Diego Schwartzman, Italian Lorenzo Musetti, who is No. 20 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, is due to climb even higher. Frances Tiafoe, World No. 15, was also a popular choice among players.
Norrie and the Argentine Schwartzman must think alike as they again agreed that Rublev will win his maiden ATP Masters 1000 crown this season. With a big smile across his face, Rublev shared, “I’ve never won a Masters 1000 yet, but hopefully I can win at least one some day, some year, some life!”
When players were asked who will triumph at this year’s Grand Slam events, last year’s US Open semi-finalist Tiafoe said, “I feel like I’ve got some unfinished business!” as he predicted himself to lift the trophy at Flushing Meadows.
