The ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament will go on as scheduled from February 7th to 13th with the slight caveat of no fans being allowed in attendance. This is a safety measure to help prevent the spread of any COVID-related variants. 

The players will be in attendance in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. This will be the historic 50th version of this tennis tournament with Andrey Rublev looking to defend last year’s title. Rublev is not favored however as that honor goes to Stefanos Tsitsipas at +280. 

7 of the world’s top 20 are taking part in this event and five of them go off as 8:1 favorites or better. This looks like it’s going to be a top-heavy tournament so let’s take a look at some of the more popular plays:

ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament Odds

Stefanos Tsitsipas +280

Tsitsipas is a very lofty favorite for this event as the #1 seed in the tournament. He is ranked #4 in the world and coming off a trip to the semi-finals at the Australian Open where he eventually fell to Daniel Medvedev. 

Tsitsipas reached the semi-finals at last year’s event before losing to eventual champion Rublev. 

Andrey Rublev +800

Not horrible odds for the defending champion. Rublev is the #2 seed in this tournament and is ranked #7 in the world. Rublev dominated his first two Australian Open rounds before falling to Marin Cilic. 

Rublev has a 96-55 career record in indoor events and his game caters well to Rotterdam. 

Felix Auger-Aliassime +400

There are rarely any surprises as far as longshot winners in this tournament, therefore it makes sense to back Auger Aliassime who is just behind Tsitsipas at +400. Auger Aliassime is ready to get back on the court after letting a two-set lead slip away in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open before eventually falling to Medvedev. 

FAA has never won a title, going 0-8 in final matches which do make him a tough play. He’ll also likely have to knock out the defending champ Rublev in a possible 3rd round meeting. It’s a shaky path, but it’s doable. 

Botic van de Zandschulp +3100

Time to find some longshots and what better choice than van de Zandschulp playing in his home country? This is where a lack of fans does hurt the Dutchmen, however. Like what seems like most of the favorites in this tournament, van de Zandschulp also had his Australian Open run end with a loss to Medvedev in the round of 32. He is also ranked just #50, hence the longer odds. 

Hubert Hurkacz +700

Hurkacz gets a nod here for the simple fact that he can adapt to the indoor conditions, winning both the singles and doubles title at the Moselle Open in France in September. That was at Metz, which is a much faster court than Rotterdam. 

ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament Summary

There are a lot of solid players at Rotterdam for this event, and expect one of the higher odds guys to take home this crown. Upsets don’t look like they’re on the menu for this one.
