Can Medvedev Win His First Grass-Court Title In Mallorca? All You Need To Know
The grass-court swing continues next week in Spain at the Mallorca Championships, a new ATP 250 tournament. It will be headlined by Daniil Medvedev and Dominic Thiem after the pair accepted wild cards into the event.
The tournament was originally set to make its debut in 2020 but was cancelled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The World No. 2 Medvedev, who bowed out in the first round in Halle (l. to Struff), will be seeking his first ATP Tour title on grass, with all 10 coming on hard court.
He will be joined by Thiem, who is currently No. 5 in the FedEx ATP Rankings, in what will be the Austrian’s first grass-court event since Wimbledon in 2019.
The World No. 12 and home favourite Pablo Carreno Busta, Feliciano Lopez, who has won four of his seven ATP Tour titles on grass, and Geneva champion Casper Ruud are all in the draw as well, with Novak Djokovic entering the doubles.
