Fantastic February For Monfils
Monfils had a strong 2019, returning to the top ten in the ATP rankings, winning the ATP 500 at Rotterdam and performing consistently through the year.
2020 got off to a fair start for the Frenchman, making the round of 16 at the Australian Open, where he was defeated by runner-up Dominic Thiem.
It has been a fantastic February for Monfils, who won back-to-back titles at Montpellier and Rotterdam and looked in sublime touch throughout.
Monfils arrives in Dubai high on confidence and while he does not start as the favorite, given the presence of Novak Djokovic in the draw, he will definitely be expected to have another deep run, given the form he has been in.

Despite a lackluster end to 2019, Fucscovics ran into good form at the Australian Open last month, making the fourth round of a major for the second time, after a similar run in Melbourne in 2018.
Defeating rising Next Gen Canadian Denis Shapovalov, young teenager Jannik Sinner and young American Tommy Paul, Fucsovics’ Australian Open ended at the hands of Swiss maestro Roger Federer in four sets.
The Hungarian has had early round losses since, at both Rotterdam and Marseille, and will be looking for a better run this week in Dubai.
