Straight off a superb week of indoor action on the ATP in Rotterdam, it’s all eyes on Marseille this week. Just as there was last week in Rotterdam, the draw for the Open 13 is stacked with some of the best young players currently in the game. Some of them had really disappointing weeks in the Netherlands.

Tsitsipas aims for a title defence

Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas won the title in Marseille twelve months ago. Interestingly last year, he was a little out of form behind heading to this event. But he put it all together and it sparked off his season. Will the same happen this time around because he hasn’t been carrying superb momentum in 2020.

Top Half Winner


Overall it has been a year of falling-short form him. He took an early bow from the Australian Open in the third round in straight sets against Milos Raonic. Then Tsipsitas was out last week in Rotterdam and went home in the second round against massive underdog Aljaz Bedene.

Tsitsipas used Marseille as a big springboard in form last year. Will the same happen for him as a 4/1 shot* (betting odds taken from BetVictor on February 16th 2020 at 23:16)?

Medvedev lines up as favourite at the Open 13

Russia’s Daniil Medvedev, like Tsitsipas, had an upset in Rotterdam, despite having been one of the leading contenders there. He suffered a loss in his opening match of the tournament, going down against Vasek Pospisil.

That was on the back of a fourth-round exit at the Australian Open. Greater things are expected of the young Russian of course, who was a losing finalist at last year’s US Open.

He goes as top seed a favourite at 5/2* (betting odds taken from BetVictor on February 16th 2020 at 23:16). Medvedev’s only previous appearance in the main draw of Marseille happened in 2017 when he made the quarters.

Young Canadians to rise?

NextGen stars Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime are worth a look for ATP Marseille betting. The latter reached the final of Rotterdam on the weekend after producing some brilliant tennis throughout the week.

He was beaten to the title to defending champion Gael Monfils, but that was a great tournament nonetheless for Auger-Aliassime. But will the extended week take something away from his efforts in France? He is a 12/1 punt for Marseille* (betting odds taken from BetVictor on February 16th 2020 at 23:16)

His fellow Canadian Denis Shapovalov has had a very busy 2020. However, none of it has quite gone to plan.

Including his appearance at the Australian Open, Shapovalov has lost his last three matches after having bowed out in the first round of Rotterdam last week against Grigor Dimitrov. The youngster has far more about him than that and needs a morale-boost.

But he’s not a bad dark horse option to come through but just a shade too short at 8/1* (betting odds taken from BetVictor on February 16th 2020 at 23:16)

Other contenders

Next-Gen ATP Finals 2019 champion Jannik Sinner is in the draw after having reached the quarter-finals of Rotterdam last week. He claimed a fantastic second-round win over David Goffin at the event, taking the win in straight sets.

It’s almost as-you-were from last week’s Rotterdam draw with Karen Khachanov taking his place. The Russian lifted the Marseille title in 2018. Belgium’s Goffin is also back in action this week in Marseille. He made a good run to the semi-finals of last year’s tournament where he was beaten out by eventual winner Tsitsipas.

Former world number three Marin Cilic is in as well. This will be the Croatian’s first appearance since his fourth-round loss at the Australian Open to Milos Raonic. Leading the French charge on the Mediterranean coast is Benoit Paire and Gilles Simon. The latter reached last year’s quarter-finals, but neither he or Paire have shown much 2020 form.


A tough tournament to predict. The front runners of Medvedev and Tsitsipas both had massively disappointing weeks in Rotterdam. So do you lean towards one of them coming good, thinking that they aren’t going to be kept down long?

There are a lot of players like that in this field, so much potential, but lacking winning momentum.

Tsitsipas is aiming for a title defence, but Medvedev has just looked slightly the sharper of the two this year and is the justifiable favourite. But he does have the slightly tricky quarter to get through. The way the draw is, the two of them could meet in the final.

Our first pick is Goffin to win the 2nd quarter at 4/6* (betting odds taken from BetVictor on February 16th 2020 at 23:16). He recently hit the semi-finals at the Open Sud de France and was a losing semi-finalist here last year. His main opponent in the quarter Felix Auger-Aliassime just had a long week in Rotterdam.

Because of that and because Medvedev is in the top half of the draw as well, a straight option on the winner coming from the Top Half of the draw fits well.
