Opelka: The Next Star of American Men’s Tennis?

After achieving a career-high rating of No. 22, can Opelka become the next superstar of American tennis for men?

Opelka jumped ten spots in the ATP singles rankings. this week following his very first Masters 1000 final in Toronto on Sunday. He fell by straight-sets to No.1 player Daniil Medvedev. But, he proved to the world’s tennis fans. that this will not be the last major tournament of his professional career.

Opelka was the first player to win an ATP singles crown on hard courts in New York in 2019. which was an ATP 250 tournament. Then, he was able to win a more singles crown at Delray Beach, another 250 level event in 2020. Many have wondered because of his 6-foot-11″ frame and large serve. if he would be able to climb in the Top 10 as John Isner did in the year 2018. Many tennis broadcasters and analysts have been comparing Opelka and Isner’s performances. due to the large serve and forehand size. Opelka has surpassed Isner on Monday morning in the singles rankings. To become the top-ranked tour American man.

Opelka arrived in Toronto after bouncing in his third match of Citi:

Open in Washington D.C. to John Millman in straight sets. Many were anticipating that he could lose his opening round encounter. On the court in Toronto in the first round against Australian Nick Kyrgios. Opelka lost the opening set to Kyrgios, 4-6, but he came back to take the match 6-4 in the final set. After the 3rd round, Opelka force plays an opportunity to play. The South African Lloyd Harris but prevailed in the final. In the semi-finals against Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece. He fell in one set to an unforced tiebreak. He had to come back again, and he won the match by 6-4 in the last set.

Opelka was up against Daniil Medvedev at the end of the match and appeared uneasy. Opelka does not use too many of his serves returning and Medvedev forced him to play. He fell short of the match 4-3, 3-6, and during the press conference following the match. he said how the match was “hard to hurt Medvedev.”

Opelka could be a real threat in major tournaments. If he is able to get better at the way he hits his spots on the first serves. However, He’s a faster player than someone like John Isnerbutr. Isner has more consistency in his groundstrokes. If he could learn to be more patient in rallies and also learn. When to take massive shots during crucial moments. He could be able to jump in the Top 10 in the rankings over the next few months.

Opelka will play Corentin Moutet from France. In the opening match of the Western & Southern Open Tuesday.
