ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament Info

The 2022 ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament is a men’s tennis tournament played on indoor hard courts. It will mark the 49th edition of the Rotterdam Open and is a part of the ATP Tour 500 series on the 2022 ATP Tour.

The men’s singles tournament will welcome some of the top-rated tennis players in the world, including world no.4, Stefanos Tsitsipas as the top seed, world no.7 Andrey Rublev, and world no.9 Félix Auger-Aliassime as the third seed. Joining the trio are Hubert Hurkacz (no.11), Denis Shapovalov (no.12), Cameron Norrie (no.13), Aslan Karatsev (no.15), and Nikoloz Basilashvili (no.21).

Andrey Rublev enters the 2022 ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament as the reigning champion, having won the tournament in 2021, with a 7-6, 6-4 against Márton Fucsovics, who will be competing at the event, looking to improve upon his showing last year.

Players To Watch Out For

  • Stefanos Tsitsipas

Stefanos Tsitsipas is priced as the main favorite to win the 2022 ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, at odds close to +300 on most sports betting sites. That makes sense since he is the top-rated player of the event, and the tournament hasn’t exactly seen many upset winners – not a single one since Martin Klizan’s triumph in 2016.

Tsitsipas is fresh off a solid start to the season, having made semis in the 2022 Australian Open, where he lost against Daniil Medvedev (1-3) but has done well enough to defeat Sinner (3-0), Fritz (3-2), Paire (3-1), Baez (3-1), and Ymer (3-0).

However, while Tsitsipas has shown enough for us to believe he has a realistic chance to win in the Netherlands, his short odds make him a far less appealing pick.  

  • Andrey Rublev

Priced as the second-favorite to win his second ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament title, Rublev should arguably be priced much closer to Tsitsipas. That is even though the Greek shone in Australia and has already won seven titles at lower-level events such as this one.

But it’s worth noting that four of those seven titles have come indoors, granted on much faster courses – two in Marseille. The Rotterdam course, on the other side, is very slow and was a hot topic of discussion among the players, so it’s fair to say that it won’t suit Tsitsipas.

However, that just might help Rublev, who has a very solid record on indoor hard courts – four of his career eight titles have come in these conditions. What’s more, he is the reigning champion, so it’s fair to say that the slow courts don’t bother him, and he seemed to do fine in Moscow, St Petersburg, and Vienna as well.

Admittedly, Rublev underperformed in Australia, where he crashed out of R3. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that he should do more than fine in the Netherlands.

  • Alexander Bublik 

Alexander Bublik is a solid longshot pick at odds as high as +3300. He has an exceptional serve which should cut through the suboptimal conditions. Most notably, he served 69 aces when he rediscovered his form in Montpellier, where he won his maiden title.

Obviously, there are better players in the field than Bublik, but he’s a bit overpriced at the offered ATP betting odds. One thing that could concern you is fatigue and whether it will play a part this week, but Bublik has looked much better of late, and if his performance in France is any indication, he should do more than fine in Rotterdam as well.
