The final tournament will begin before the end of the Masters season on Sunday. In Stockholm, tennis players will be competing in the ATP 250 indoor competition, and there are interesting names up the ladder.

Officially, the event in Stockholm was supposed to end the race to the ATP Finals 2021, but the composition of the Champions League has already been established in Paris. Norwegians Casper Ruud and Hubert Hurkacz won the last two free tickets. They, too, immediately stopped playing in the Swedish capital.
This does not mean that there will be no feelings in Stockholm. Representatives of talented youth were placed in the highest rank. Italian Yannick Sener will play with the first substitute, hoping to have the opportunity to play in the ATP Finals as the first substitute (Stefanos Tsitsipas and Matteo Berrettini both have health issues). Canadian Felix Auger Eliassim will sing with “Monday”.
The top four ranked players received a bye in the first round. Sinner may take off from Britain’s Andy Murray (Wild Card) or eligible tennis player at kickoff. Also in his quarter is the son of the legendary Bjoern Borg, Leo Borg, who was given a wild card by the organizers. The third pass to the master was awarded to another representative of the hosts, Ilyas Ymir.
In 2020, the Stockholm tournament was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Two years ago, Denis Shapovalov became the champion. The Canadian decided to return to the Swedish capital. He was ranked number three and got a goodbye in the first round. Starting with the 1/8 finals, Britain’s Daniel Evans, seeded with a “four,” will also enter the competition.
