2021 Singapore Tennis Open Friday’s Schedule of Play
The Singapore Tennis Open brings tennis of the highest level back to Singapore in an event running from the 22nd till the 28th of February.
The quarterfinals at the Singapore Tennis open will offer the best batch of matches yet as many of the top players who attended this event set to play. We will get to see players such as Cilic, Bublik, Nishioka and Mannarino fight for places in the semifinals.
It will start at 07:00 CET as two Aussies battle it out. Ebden will take on Popyrin and after beating Millman in the previous round he will fancy his chances against Popyrin as well. After them, we will see Mannarino take on Albot in a match where the serve might prove crucial. Both rely on it heavily and if one has a bad day serving it will be trouble for him.
Marin Cilic will take on the tricky Kwon in a match where he will be heavily favoured nonetheless. He should have no issues reaching the next round but it till be far from easy. The final match of the day will be between Bublik and Nishioka. The Japanese player is a tricky player to face but Bublik should be able to edge him out especially if he has a good day serving.

It will start at 07:10 when Albot will take on Hanfmann. The Moldovan player had a strong Australian Open and that continued in Singapore. He will be favoured against the German who usually does not play at this level. An all-Australian clash will follow as Ebden will take on Millman. Both of them had solid Australian Open so they will look to keep that momentum going.
Mannarino will take on Marcora after that and anything except a victory from the Frenchman will be a surprise. Marcora is a clay court specialists who does not fare well on hard courts.
