A LOOK AHEAD TO 2018 ON THE ATP WORLD TOUR

The 2018 ATP World Tour season kicks off with a bang on 1st January, with ATP 250 events in Brisbane, Doha and Pune – and as always, Tennis TV will be bringing you the best of the action!

We’ll be streaming over 2,000 matches – both live and on demand – across 64 tournaments in 2018. Here are a few things we think you should be looking out for ahead of the new season…

Will the Fedal resurgence continue? 

Given their difficult 2016 seasons, few would have predicted that Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer would now be sitting at No.1 and 2 in the Emirates ATP Rankings. However, with 119 match wins between them – and 13 titles including all four Grand Slams – 2017 has certainly been one to remember for these tennis legends!

Will the resurgence continue into 2018?

Can Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray return to the top in 2018?

In complete contrast to Federer and Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic have been sidelined with injuries since July, and have both seen their rankings drop outside of the world’s top 10.

Djokovic thrilled tennis fans in 2015, winning a staggering six Masters 1000 titles as well as the ATP Finals in London, before Murray’s domination in 2016 propelled him into the year end World No.1 position.

Will either of them be able to recapture such form in January – a period in the ATP World Tour calendar that has brought both of them much success in previous years?

Also returning from injury will be Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka.

Make sure to tune into Brisbane, Doha and Pune to see how they all get on…

Which Next Gen stars will break the top ten in 2018?

2017 saw the launch of the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan, the season-finale that saw the top eight players in the world square off to be crowned champion.

But which young gun will make the biggest impact in 2018?

So far we’ve seen Alexander Zverev – aged just 20 – catapult himself to number four in the Emirates ATP Rankings by winning his first ATP Masters 1000 titles in Rome and Montreal.

We’ve also seen Denis Shapovalov record victories over Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro, and Andrey Rublev overcome Grigor Dimitrov, Jack Sock and David Goffin.

Who will you be keeping an eye on over the next 12 months?

Can Nick Kyrgios win big in 2018?

Still aged just 22, many will be wondering what Nick Kyrgios is capable of in 2018…

We’ve seen him record wins over Rafael Nadal, David Goffin and Alexander Zverev  in 2017, as well as record back-to-back wins over Novak Djokovic in Acapulco and Indian Wells.

2017 also saw him reach his first Masters 1000 semi-final in Miami, followed by his first Masters 1000 final in Cincinnati.

How far can his undeniable talent take him in 2018? One thing that is for sure is that you won’t want to miss out on any of the action!
