Check here the composition of the final draw of the Masters 1,000 in Cincinnati that starts this Saturday in New York. Djokovic, Thiem, Pliskova, Serena ...


The ATP circuit is here. The Cincinnati Masters 1,000, the first men's tennis event since the pandemic broke out and with it the rosary of cancellations, starts this Saturday in New York instead of its natural use in Ohio. The objective with this change is to create a kind of anti-coronavirus bubble in Flushing Meadows, where the US Open will start on the 31st.

The first seed of the men's team is Novak Djokovic. It will start already in the second round against the winner of the first-class duel between Tommy Paul and a qualifier. In eighth he could already cross Basilashvili or Auger-Aliassime; In the quarters, bones such as Goffin, Shapovalov, Cilic, De Miñaur or Coric could appear, and in the semifinals two dangerous Russians such as Medvedev or Khachanov or Bautista, who is exempt from the first game and will start against Gasquet or a tennis player from the previous one. A round of 16 crossing is possible between the Spaniard from Castellón and the Asturian Pablo Carreño (making his debut against Lajovic), the only two Spanish representatives in the tournament.

At the other end of the table the main candidate is the Austrian Dominic Thiem, second seeded. He will also start in the second rung against Krajinovic or a qualifier. With Dimitrov could be seen in the second round. Later, Rublev, Raonic, Murray, Tiafoe or Zverev, in the quarterfinals, and Berrettini, Tsitsipas, Schwartzman or Isner, in the semifinals, are aspiring to join him.

No Spanish women in the women's team

In the women's team, no Spanish tennis players, with the two main national rackets, Carla Suárez and Garbiñe Muguruza, suffering from physical problems. The upper part is headed by Czech Karolina Pliskova. It will debut in the second round against Tomljanovic or Kudermetova. In eighths it could be seen with Sevastova or Mertens; in quarters, with Riske, Venus Williams, Osaka or Sabalenka and in 'semis', with Kvitova or Kontaveit.

The other great candidate for the final triumph is the American Sofia Kenin. She will start against the winner of the duel between Cornet and McNally. Sloane Stephens, Azarenka or Caroline Garcia could complicate things in the second round. In the fourth Keys it would be the great threat and in the semis, Konta, Vondrousova or Serena Williams.
