The top seeds are tumbling in this tournament! Cam Norrie will be facing his second straight seeded player in Marin Cilic after a grueling comeback against Cristian Garin. Cilic has had his own fair share of topsy-turvy matches this week, beating young upstarts Carlos Alcaraz and Nuno Borges in two tough three-setters. Thus, these two competitors are roughly equal in terms of time spent on court, and while neither player comfortably can call the clay their home, both have shown their viability on the surface nonetheless.

We’ll be seeing a red-hot player taking on a veteran warrior tomorrow in Munich. Ruud is on the back of a semifinal run in Monte Carlo, and will be looking for another deep run here as the second seed. While Millman’s results on clay and in general have been less than special this year, he is a fighter that can grind out points and take advantage of any weaknesses in his opponents mentality. This match will be one of the first matches in this tournament with two seeded players facing off, but the result might be more lackluster than some would expect.

A match between two lefties, if not a rarity, is always a feast to watch. Shapovalov’s explosive game is as entertaining as it is effective, and Corentin Moutet’s tactical skills are sure to give both players a chance to show the best of their respective games. Shapovalov is the first seed at Estoril, and he is playing his first match of the tournament tomorrow. On the other hand, Moutet was forced to grind through a tight three-setter against American Marcos Giron yesterday, so he will have some experience (and perhaps a bit of fatigue) to carry into this match.

Not many tennis fans would have expected this first-round match to turn into the dramatic blockbuster it was, and even fewer would expect Anderson to come out on top. But the world number 105 recovered from a break down in the second set - and then a match point in the second set tiebreaker - to force a deciding set.

The final of Qatar is upon us between an unlikely pair, with Roberto Bautista Agut showing us why you should never underestimate him and Nikoloz Basilashvili continuing his run after beating Federer from match point down. This will be a grinding baseline affair and will be full of intense rallies and amazing shotmaking. It's not the final we expected but it'll be a finale filled with fireworks.
