The 2021 ATP 2021 European Open is an indoor hard-court men’s tennis tournament and the sixth edition of the European Open. The competition is a part of the ATP World Tour 250 series of the 2021 ATP Tour, and it will take place at the Lotto Arena in Antwerp, Belgium.
The competition is slated for October 18-24, featuring 28 players, who will duke it out for the title, including seven of the top-20 players in the ATP Rankings. Leading the way is Félix Auger-Aliassime as the highest-seeded player of the tournament, followed by Jannik Sinner and Diego Schwartzman as second and third-seeds.

Players to Watch Out For
- Félix Auger-Aliassime
Ranked no.11 in the world, Félix Auger-Aliassime travels to Antwerp as the highest-seeded player in the field. Therefore, it shouldn’t come off as a surprise that Auger-Aliassime is expected to deliver and compete for the top spots, especially knowing how well the Canadian tennis star had dome earlier last month.
Auger-Aliassime had made it all the way to the semi-finals of the 2021 U.S. Open, adding to his previous success when he reached the quarter-finals of the 2021 Wimbledon. However, outside of those two Grand Slam performances, Auger-Aliassime hasn’t achieved much – particularly in recent weeks.
After crashing out of the 2021 U.S. Open, Auger-Aliassime underperformed at the Laver Cup, where he lost to Matteo Berrettini in the group stage and has recently exited the Indian Wells Masters in Round of 64.
It seems like Auger-Aliassime’s dissipating performance in the 2021 U.S. Open took a tool on his morale, effectively harming his performances on the court. He might be the highest-rated player attending the ATP 2021 European Open. But he is definitely not the most-in form player in the field.
- Jannik Sinner
The rising Italian tennis star has achieved a lot in the year. While he hasn’t won a single Grand Slam tennis tournament, that doesn’t mean much, seeing how there were only two Grand Slam champions in 2021.
Still, Sinner has made it to R4 at both the 2021 French Open and the 2021 U.S. Open, which are very impressive achievements for a 20-year-old who has first appeared at a Grand Slam tennis tournament in 2019.
Outside of that, Sinner has won the 2021 Sofia Open and is through to R4 at the Indian Wells Masters. Earlier in August, the Italian has also won the Washington Open and made it to the semi-finals of the Barcelona Open in April.
Even more impressive is his record on hard courts in 2021 (23/9), which shows immense growth from 2019 (2/6). And while Sinner has done better on hard courts this season, it’s not like he has ever struggled to deliver on this surface, seeing how he is at a 62.5% career win rate on hard courts.
- Diego Schwartzman
Diego Schwartzman trails Sinner and Auger-Aliassime as the third-highest seeded player at 2021 European Open and world no.15. Like his main two competitors, Schwartzman has achieved plenty in 2021, including QF at the 2021 San Diego Open and R4 at the 2021 U.S. Open.
At Grand Slam tennis tournaments, Schwartzman has done exceptionally well this year, and while he wasn’t able to emulate his success from 2020 when he made it to the semi-finals of the 2020 French Open, Schwartzman has two R3 exits (Australia, Wimbledon), an R4 exit (U.S. Open), and quarter-finals appearance at the French Open, where he lost against Rafael Nadal.
Like Sinner, Schwartzman has shown solid form on hard courts this year, with 17/9. It marks his career-best record on hard courts, having averaged a rather mediocre 53.16% win rate on hard courts over his 12-year-long career.
