Open de Nice
The ATP World Tour returned to Nice in 2010 for the first time in 15 years with the inaugural Open de Nice Cote d’Azur, held the week before Roland Garros. Nice is one of five ATP World Tour events held in France, along with Marseille, Metz, Montpellier and Paris. Frenchman Richard Gasquet won the title last year and has timed his run of form well in time to defend his crown. It’s hard not to see Ferrer however doing his thing and hoovering up the title.
Let’s look at some potential good 1st rounders, upsets and winners:
Defending Champion: Richard Gasquet
Top 1st Round Match:
My pick: David Ferrer
