All The Eyes On Hurkacz
Hubert Hurkacz heads to Metz, France, for a shot at the Moselle Open title, following a devastating R2 exit from the 2021 U.S. Open. The Polish tennis star has never won in Metz before, albeit it’s hard to doubt his chances to shine this week, seeing how Hurkacz is the highest-seeded player at the 2021 Moselle Open.
In August, Hurkacz reached the quarter-finals of the Canadian Open, when he nearly won against the recently crowned U.S. Open champion, Daniil Medvedev (6-2, 6-7, 6-7). Prior to that, Hurkacz also reached the semi-finals of the 2021 Wimbledon and won the Miami Open in April.
2021 is Hurkacz’s best season to date, having peaked at world no.11 in July, and is now ranked 13th on the ATP ladder. Suffice to say, Hurkacz will be one of the favorites to win in France.
Carreno Busta Looking to Shake Up the Field
Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta will aim to secure his third ATP Tour title of the season in Metz and his first on the hard courts. The 30-year-old, former no.1, enters 2021 Moselle Open as the second-seeded player and a serious threat for Hurkacz and his chance for the title.
Like the Pole, Busta has achieved some success in 2021, having made it to R4 at the 2021 French Open, quarter-finals of the Cincinnati Masters, and has won two titles across 15 tournaments on the year. Like Hurkacz, Busta is enjoying one of the best seasons in his career, with a 71% win rate across all surfaces and a 13/7 record on hard courts.
What’s more, Busta is 1-0 in the head-to-head with Hurkacz on the year, having beaten the Pole in R3 of the Cincinnati Masters. However, the match was extremely close (7-6, 7-6), as Busta needed tiebreakers (8-6, 7-3) to edge out a W.
Four-Time Champion Looking for His Fifth
World no.113, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, will chase his fifth Moselle Open title this week, having already won here in 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2019. The 36-year-old French tennis player is by far the most successful player at the tournament, albeit he is no longer the same player he was the last time he won here (world no.61).
Unlike the main favorites, Tsonga hasn’t achieved much this year, with two Grand Slam R1 exits at the 2021 French Open and 2021 Wimbledon. His most notable accomplishment of 2021 came in March when he made it to the Round of 16 at the Open 13, where he lost against Ugo Humbert (3-6, 4-6).
Tsonga has 18 career titles and an Olympics gold medal, albeit he hasn’t won anything since 2019. And with the form he has been showing, it’s unlikely that he’ll manage a deep run in Metz. We’re ready for Tsonga to prove us wrong, but it likely won’t happen.
