The first entry list for the next tennis season of the tournaments at Antalya and Delray Beach was announced on Tuesday. Players scheduled to launch in early January include David Goffin, Fabio Fognini, Milos Raonic, John Isner and Kei Nishikori.
The Antalya Open will be licensed for one year on tour as ATP is trying to fill in the gaps left by early-season cancellations in places like Auckland, Pune and New York for the start on January 5th. I did. There was a Glass Court 250 event in Antalya in the summer of 2019, but when the Australian Open rescheduled from January to February is ready, this will clearly take place on the hard court.
Antalya’s entry list includes Goffin, Fognini, Matteo Berrettini, Alex de Minaur, Borna Coric, Benoit Paire, Jan-Lennard Strough, Jannik Sinner and Miomirkitsmanovich.
Not a stranger to the ATP Tour, the Delray Beach Open previously occupied the February spot on the calendar between the Australian Open and the Indian Wells and Miami Masters 1000 Stretch. The move of the Australian Open to February has forced all 250 hosts to cancel or postpone the 2021 installments. Delray Beach eventually jumped to the front line of the line to hold the festival next year alongside Antalya.
As always, Delray Beach has a large American lineup: Isner, Sam Querrey, Reilly Opelka, Frances Tiafoe, Tommy Paul and more. Joining the delegation are Raonic, Nishikori, Cristian Garin, Hubert Hurkacz, Dan Evans, and Vasek Pospisil, the 2020 Comeback Player of the Year.
Following Antalya and Delray Beach, the main tour will be a short but another pause as players come down to Australia to quarantine prior to the first Grand Slam of the year. The AO qualifiers will take place in Doha from January 10th to 13th, and the winning qualifiers will have ample time to participate in the Melbourne Quarantine. (ATP ••• WTA will play in Dubai)
The 250 pairs in Melbourne and the ATP Cup, also in Melbourne, will precede the Australian Open in the first week of February.
