As already stated, a rather large ATP 500 tournament is held March 1-7 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Thirty-two competitors fought on indoor hard courts for the tournament title, which has a prize pool of more than 1 million Euro. However, only two of the strongest players reached the final – world No. 8 Andrey Rublev and world No. 59 Marton Fucsovics. With the tournament scheduled to end on March 7th, we will find out today who will get the right to be named the event’s best player.

“Andrei is playing unbelievable right now, especially at the ATP 500 level. He hasn’t lost for a long time. We’re in for an interesting final. I’ll try to show everything I can and have fun.”
