Players to Watch
- Daniil Medvedev
Daniil Medvedev was considered one of the main favorites to win the 2021 BNP Paribas Open before the tournament started and kept that tag through the opening rounds of play. Priced as low as +130, Medvedev leads the way as the most likely tennis player to hoist the trophy.
Although you can’t deny Medvedev’s quality as one of the top players in the world, he is by no means the only contender for the 2021 BNP Paribas Open title. Closely followed by Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas, Medvedev’s success is not guaranteed, especially considering he has nearly lost to Zverev earlier this year and has kneeled to Tsitsipas in the 2021 French Open quarter-finals.
- Alexander Zverev
Priced as the second-favorite to win the 2021 BNP Paribas Open, the 24-year-old German tennis player deserves some attention. In September, Zverev made it to the semi-finals of the 2021 US Open, where he nearly eliminated the current world no.1, Novak Djokovic (6-4, 2-6, 4-6, 6-4, 2-6), but that’s not everything he has achieved on the year.
Zverev has also won the Cincinnati Masters in late August, reached Round of 16 at the 2021 Wimbledon, and the semi-finals of the 2021 French Open.
Ranked fourth on the ATP Rankings, Zverev has proven time and time again that he can compete against the best tennis players in the world. And while he has not beaten Medvedev once since August 2018, it’s only a matter of time before the German tennis star changes that.
- Stefanos Tsitsipas
The Greek tennis star is priced as high as +650 to win, which may seem a bit high considering he has made it to the finals of the 2021 French open. However, it has become apparent that Tsitsipas has lost his form since that loss.
What exactly happened with Tsitsipas is anyone’s guess, but he seemed broken since losing his shot at the Grand Slam title. He’s definitely the favorite in the lower half of the draw; however, unless the Greek finds his form, there is a good chance he could crash out early.
On a more positive note, Tsitsipas has done well against the leading two candidates to win the title, so there is a world where he proves us otherwise. But based on what we have seen from him lately, it’s unlikely he will manage to reach deep enough.
- Casper Ruud
If you’re looking for a longshot bet to win the 2021 BNP Paribas Open, Casper Ruud just might fit the bill. The Norwegian has recently won a title in San Diego, which just might be a breakthrough moment for the 22-year-old as he chases another piece of silverware this week.
There are certainly some doubts about Ruud, however. He has been long regarded as only a serious contender on clay but has since proven that he can hold his own on all surfaces on any given day.
Admittedly, Ruud will have to find a higher level to win the 2021 BNP Paribas Open, which might be beyond him. Still, considering the improvement Ruud has been showing across the latest months, it wouldn’t be too shocking to see him reach the finals and take on Medvedev for all the marbles.
