Tsitsipas Goes For Marseille Hat-trick; All You Need To Know

All about the ATP 250 tennis tournament in Marseille, France

For the past two years, Stefanos Tsitsipas has dominated the Open 13 Provence in Marseille. The Greek claimed eight straight wins — and 16 consecutive sets — to clinch the 2019 and 2020 crowns and he will return in 2021 with his sights set on a Marseille hat-trick.

Tsitsipas is one of three players to win back-to-back titles at the ATP 250, alongside Marc Rosset (1993-’94) and Thomas Enqvist (1997-’98). He will aim to become the first player to win three titles in a row at the event this year.

Tsitsipas is joined by a stellar line-up on the southern French coast. World No. 3 Daniil Medvedev will aim to bounce back from a first-round loss at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam. Medvedev, who owns five indoor tour-level trophies, will be chasing his 10th ATP Tour crown in Marseille.

Former champion Karen Khachanov (2018), #NextGenATP Italian Jannik Sinner and home favourite Ugo Humbert will also aim to add to their ATP Tour trophy collections. Three-time champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (2009, ’13, ’17) and Kei Nishikori will also feature at the ATP 250. 

Here’s all you need to know about the Marseille tennis tournament: what is the schedule, when is the draw, who has won, how to watch and more.
