Atp Sofia: Draw – Sinner for the trio, the hunt for the Finals restarts. There is Musetti

After the carousel ride in London with Laver Cup and Roger Federer’s farewell to tennis, the bandwagon of the men’s circuit restarts with a rather heavy load. Up for grabs the last places for the Finals in Turin, in the background also the last ‘1000’ of the season which will be held in Paris-Bercy.

Not the only reason for the presence in the ‘250’ of Sofia of the two-time tournament champion Jannik Sinner, who after the defeat in the quarter-finals against Carlos Alcaraz and the Davis Cup parenthesis – rather disappointing from an individual point of view – starts again from the Bulgarian tournament to shake off some complicated weeks.

Number one in seeding, and called to defend the title, the blue player will face a qualified or Borges in the second round (obviously after a bye). The hypothetical quarter-final with the winner of the match between Fabio Fognini and Stan Wawrinka, however, on a collision course in the first round and eventually called to break down the obstacle proposed by the winner of the challenge between Nikoloz Basilashvili and Fernando Verdasco, is fascinating.

In the upper part of the scoreboard, in the lower segment, also Lorenzo Sonego, fresh from a more than positive tournament in Metz. For the Turin player, the first round match against Zapata Miralles could be the background to that in the second round with Grigor Dimitrov, number three in the seeding.

It is also played in Seoul

Fourth seeding force Lorenzo Musetti, who after Lehecka or Lazarov, could face the quarter-finals with one between Jack Draper and Dusan Lajovic. Complete the picture at the bottom of the draw the ‘usual’ Pablo Carreno Busta, parallel on a collision course with a qualifier or Huesler in the second round.

Two of the protagonists of the ‘Team Europe’ in the Laver Cup during Roger Federer’s last dance in the major circuit, will instead participate in the ‘250’ in Seoul. Leading the seeding Casper Ruud, number two in the world and returning from the historic final reached on the concrete of Flushing Meadows, Cameron Norrie sits at the bottom of the board.

The presence on the board of Taylor Fritz and Denis Shapovalov should also be noted. There will be no blue tennis players at the starting line.
