Defending champion Andrey Rublev will begin his 2021 Kremlin Cup campaign in a repeat of the 2019 finals. The Russian received a bye in the first round and comes back to his country from a 3rd round defeat at the 2021 Indian Wells Masters to Tommy Paul. This is Rublev’s 6th main-draw appearance having won in 2019 and suffered first-round exits on the other occasions.

Adrian Mannarino comes into the tie with a hard-fought 1-6, 7-6(6), 6-4 win over Roman Safiullin in the first round. The Frenchman was the runner-up in 2018 and 2019 at the Kremlin Cup and a semi-finalist in 2017. This is just his 4th tournament since his injury at the 2021 Wimbledon and he comes to Moscow from a first-round defeat to Andy Murray at the Indian Wells.
