How does the Stockholm ATP 250 work?


The ATP 250 Stockholm is a traditional competition on the ATP World Tour calendar, reaching its 52nd edition in 2022. This year, the main highlight will be the Greek number 5 in the world, Stefanos Tsitsipas, who has already won the ATP Stockholm in 2018 and is the big favorite for the title this year. On the other side of the table, we will have the British number 14 in the world, Cameron Norrie, who is also having a great season and can surprise in the competition. The prize pool for the ATP 250 Stockholm is €711,275, and the tournament in 2022 will run from October 17 to October 23.


Stefanos Tsitsipas

At first, Stefanos Tsitsipas currently occupies number 5 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in August 2021, when he was number 3 in the world ranking. Being the main seed of the current competition, the Greek did not have to play in the first round of the ATP 250 Stockholm, advancing directly to the round of 16. In the first round of the playoffs, he faced the excellent North American server, Maxime Cressy. Despite winning without losing sets, he managed to triumph with extreme difficulty in two sets. In the 1st, we had a service break for each side, which was resolved in the tie-break where the number 5 got the better by 7 points to 5. In the 2nd set, tennis players performed no service break, which resulted in a new tie-break. Again the Greeks got the better and managed to win after 26 points played, closing by 14 points to 12.


Mikael Ymer

On the other hand, Mikael Ymer currently occupies number 79 in the ATP rankings, reaching the best position of his career in March 2020, when he was number 67 in the world. The 24-year-old Swede plays with the support of his fans. After the elimination of his brother Elias Ymer yesterday, he became the only representative of the country in search of the title at the ATP 250 in Stockholm. Before analyzing the matches of his campaign, it is worth mentioning that the athlete is also looking for the first relevant title of his journey through the ATP Tour, where he has never won a cup. In the first round, he barely beat the experienced French player Quentin Halys by two sets to 1 (5-7 6-4 6-3). In the round of 16, he surprised the world by easily beating the American Tommy Paul with extreme ease in straight sets (6-2 6-3).
