Monfils has had a tough few seasons recently. Having his 2021 ravaged by injuries and poor form, the Frenchman had a resurgence at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

Youngster Juan Manuel Cerundolo meanwhile had a very promising season. The 20-year-old won his first ATP title this year and also reached a career-high ranking of 85. The young Argentine would look to continue his momentum into the new season.
