Aslan Karatsev and Andrey Rublev have just missed the doubles title in Indian Wells, so the two Russians have to make their way home. Because in Moscow the ATP Tour 250 tournament is waiting, which leads Rublev ahead of Karatsev on the seeded list. And in which the two compete separately again in pair skating: Rublev with standard partner Karen Khachanov, Karatsev with compatriot Richard Muzaev.
After Daniil Medvedev's cancellation, Khachnaov is listed at number three in the singles, the most promising guest from the paper form is Filip Krajinovic as number four.
In Antwerp, Jannik Sinner is the favorite in the tournament. The South Tyrolean will be tested by a compatriot after a bye - either by Lorenzo Musetti or Gianluca Mager. The number two, Diego Schwartzman, also has an interesting task ahead of him: The Argentine plays at the start against the winner of the game between Frances Tiafoe and old master Andy Murray. The Scot celebrated his last tournament victory so far in Antwerp in 2019.
Jan-Lennard Struff, the only German fixed starter, starts with Albert Ramos-Vinolas, a manageable task for the Warsteiner.
