The “Little Red Dot” will host an ATP Tour tournament for the first time in 22 years when the Singapore Tennis Open kicks off on 22 February.
The ATP 250 event will be played on indoor hard courts and held on a single-year licence at the 3,000-seater OCBC Arena inside the vast Singapore Sports Hub. Singapore previously hosted an ATP tournament between 1989-1992 and 1996-1999.
Adrian Mannarino and John Millman will anchor the draw for the 2021 edition of the Singapore Tennis Open. Both players will be looking to double their ATP Tour trophy haul. Mannarino triumphed on grass two years ago in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, while Millman won his maiden title this past November in Nur-Sultan.
Marin Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, will also feature in Singapore. The big-serving Croatian enjoys an indoor hard court and will be in the hunt for his ninth title on the surface to bring his total to 19 ATP Tour titles. Alexander Bublik, Yoshihito Nishioka and Radu Albot are also in action.
