World No. 5 Medvedev reached the quarter-finals as a qualifier on his tournament debut in 2018, the semi-finals in 2019 (l. to Monfils), and he will attempt to reach the final this year as the top seed. Tsitsipas, the reigning Nitto ATP Finals champion, will be looking for his first win in Rotterdam in his third main draw appearance.
Meanwhile, Monfils will aspire for continued success here. The 33-year-old Frenchman has advanced to the final on his past two visits to Rotterdam, finishing runner-up to Martin Klizan in 2016 and winning the title last year with victory over Stan Wawrinka in the final.
