Week in Preview: Clijsters returns; Thiem, Kyrgios, Halep in action 17.2.2020 Articles by Steve Tignor
“Quality over quantity” is the mantra of most. Once we get to the middle of February, though, I start to doubt the wisdom of those words. While there aren’t any majors, Masters, or Mandatories played this month, there are plenty of tournaments, from plenty of different locales, on plenty of surfaces, with plenty of champions giving plenty of happy winner’s speeches. What more could a true fan want? Here’s a look ahead at the big WTA event, and three smaller ATP events, on tap this week. Along with all of those players and matches, we’ll also be getting the year’s most stunning comeback story. Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships (WTA)   $2,908,770; Premier Hard court Nearly $3 million for 28 players makes Dubai one of the most lucrative tournaments, per person, of the year. And it has attracted a field worthy of that reward. Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova, Elina Svitolina, Belinda Bencic, Sofia Kenin, and Aryna Sabalenka are the Top 6 seeds, and Australian Open finalist Garbiñe Muguruza is No. 9. But ...

Week in Preview: Medvedev heads to Rotterdam with something to prove 10.2.2020 Articles by Steve Tignor
Draw is here Getty Images Last year in Rotterdam, Daniil Medvedev gave us a taste of what his year would be like when he reached the semifinals and lost 6-4 in the third set to eventual champion Gael Monfils. Since then, of course, Medvedev has gone on to bigger and better things, including the US Open final. This week he returns as the top seed and, on paper, the pre-tournament favorite. But he also returns with something to prove: Medvedev’s fourth-round loss to Stan Wawrinka at the Australian Open was something of a disappointment, one that he could put behind him with a win here.  Something similar might be said for No. 2 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, who also had a breakout 2019, and who also went out surprisingly early in Melbourne, to Milos Raonic. But if Medvedev or Tsitsipas are going to get their mojo back in Rotterdam, they’ll have to earn it. This is the only 500-level event this week, and it has the draw to show for it: Monfils, Andrey Rublev, Roberto Bautista Agut, Fabio Fognini, David Goffin, ...
