Let's hope that there will be more opportunities in 2021 than in 2020 and let's hope that 2021 will bring back some normality.

Anyway, here are the links for the previous years:

2020
2019
2018

The methodology for the poll is as usual:

  • Top 8 ranked players without a title
  • 2 highest ranked U-23 players without a title
  • one WC

in 2020 we had 6 new title winners:

Ugo Humbert (Auckland)
Casper Ruud (Buenos Aires)
Thiago Seyboth Wild (Santiago)
Miomir Kecmanovic (Kitzbuhel)
John Millman (Nur-Sultan)
Jannik Sinner (Sofia)

So, who you got for 2021 ? FAA finally ? Or maybe some mega surprises ? Let the voting and discussion begin.

I hope the FAA or will be in danger of becoming the next Benneteau.

Bold prediction Alcaraz winning his maiden ATP level title.

Pospisil and Felix for sure.
Koepfer is good on all surfaces so he has a chance of winning a weak 250.
My unexpected prediction is Nakashima, he will win one of the US tournaments. New York indoors, Delray Beach, Atlanta, Winston-Salem or something like that.

Pospisil was awfully close this year in Sofia, just ran into an in-form Sinner... he might bag one on a faster outdoor or indoor court next year in spring or fall.

I'll be amazed and annoyed if FAA doesn't at least get a 250 next year. Assuming we get close to a full season, Evans, Pospisil and possibly Krajinovic are good shouts as well.

Musetti will surely have a great career, but I suspect 2022 is when he makes his breakthrough.

Well, if he keeps playing a high volume of 250s he'll reach a lot more finals for sure.

The question is if he can find the same mental level in finals. Because until now he was completely lost on court. 0 sets and any kind of champion's reaction (even small) in any of them.

You know what's imcredibly weird?. I looked on the wikipedia page before these semi finals in Antalya and Delray were even played and they had already put Alex De Minaur v.s Alexander Bublik and Hubert Hurkacz v.s Sebastian Korda as the 2 finals. Just a coincidence Im sure but now one of those has come to pass

that being said I do think Alexander Bublik will beat Alex De Minaur and join the first title club tomorrow
