Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas will also play in the Marseille doubles event Marseille after he and his brother Petros Tsitsipas accepted a wildcard into the doubles event. The Tsitsipas brothers debuted as a pair at the ATP level last year in Marseille and now they are set to make back-to-back appearances at the tournament.
Last year, the Tsitsipas brothers received a favorable first round match up in Marseille but failed to capitalize as Sander Arends and Tristan-Samuel Weissborn beat the Greek duo 6-1 7-5. This time it will be even tougher for the Tsitsipas brothers to clinch their first ATP win as they have been drawn to meet top-seeded Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies in their Marseille opener.
Krawietz and Mies are coming off their breakthrough season on the Tour as last year they claimed their maiden Grand Slam title at the French Open and also debuted at the Nitto ATP Finals. It remains to be seen if the Tsitsipas brothers can pull off a major upset and shock the top seeds in their Marseille opener.
