Frantic February A Gift For Tennis Lovers
The busiest month on the 2018 ATP World Tour calendar begins Monday. February will see 12 tournaments contested in 10 countries on four continents… and you can watch it all on TennisTV.com.
Three ATP World Tour 250 tournaments begin next week in Sofia, Marseille and Quito. World No. 15 Stan Wawrinka leads the Sofia field, which also includes Philipp Kohlschreiber and Gilles Muller. Nitto ATP Finals runner-up David Goffin will be the top seed in Montpellier, where Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Richard Gasquet will also compete. Flamboyant Frenchman Gael Monfils, Pablo Carreno Busta and Albert Ramos-Vinolas head to Quito, where players will battle at an elevation above 9,000 feet.
The following week marks the first ATP World Tour 500 event of the season in Rotterdam, where Grigor Dimitrov, Wawrinka, Alexander Zverev, defending champion Tsonga and Nick Kyrgios will be in action. The New York Open, a new 250 indoor tournament (Kei Nishikori, Kevin Anderson), and the Argentina Open, Argentina’s 250 clay-court tournament in Buenos Aires (Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem, Monfils), are also part of a busy week.
Watch and enjoy an action-packed month of official ATP World Tour streaming on Tennis TV, which in 2018 will bring you live coverage of more than 260* matches from 12 tournaments in February.
From 19 February the Rio Open presented by Claro, a 500 event in Rio de Janeiro, featuring Australian Open finalist Cilic and defending champion Thiem, highlights another busy week, which also includes 250 tournaments in Marseille (David Goffin, Wawrinka, Tsonga and Lucas Pouille) and Delray Beach. The long-running Delray Beach Open boasts one of its strongest-ever fields with Juan Martin del Potro, Jack Sock, US Open finalist Anderson, Sam Querrey, Milos Raonic, Kyrgios, Chung and Denis Shapovalov all playing.
The highlight of the month could come at the very end, with concurrent 500 events in Acapulco and Dubai set to determine who goes into Indian Wells as World No. 1. Rafael Nadal must reach at least the semi-finals in Acapulco to stop Roger Federer from reclaiming top spot for the first time in more than five years. Federer is weighing a decision to accept a wild card into Dubai. If he does play he is guaranteed to rise to No. 1 if he wins the title, regardless of what Nadal does in Acapulco.
Joining Nadal in Acapulco are Zverev, Thiem, Cilic, del Potro, Anderson and Querrey. Dimitrov leads the field in Dubai, where Pouille, Roberto Bautista Agut and Gasquet will also compete. The week of February 26 also sees the indoor clay 250 tournament in Sao Paulo, where defending champion Pablo Cuevas will be joined by Monfils, Albert Ramos-Vinolas and Fabio Fognini.
