The past week has been exciting.

Jannik Sinner won the ABN Amro Open on Sunday in his first tournament since capturing the Australian Open title.

The top-seeded Sinner, playing his second straight Rotterdam final, beat fifth-seeded Alex de Minaur 7-5, 6-4.

Sinner, who rises to world No. 3 as a result, earned his 15th consecutive tour win and his 12th title with a straight-sets triumph over the Australian, who was able to break back twice, once in each set, but Sinner had enough to get the job done.

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek reigned supreme in Doha once again after a statement 7-6 (8), 6-2 victory over Elena Rybakina to claim her 18th career title on Saturday at the Qatar TotalEnergies Open.

“Coming here and being kind of the double-defending champion wasn’t easy. So I’m happy that I have this experience already, and hopefully I’m going to use it.”

Swiatek is now the first player to win the Doha title more than two times in her career. And even more impressive is that she’s done it consecutively, winning 12 matches in a row – including 22 straight sets – at the Khalifa International Tennis Center.

Wild card Facundo Díaz Acosta won his first ATP singles title on Sunday by beating Chile’s Nicolás Jarry 6-3, 6-4 in the final of the clay-court Argentina Open.

Díaz Acosta began the week with a career-high ranking of 87. He is set to rise to No. 59 when the rankings are released Monday.

“This is yet to sink in,” Díaz Acosta told raucous fans. “I have dreamed about this moment for a long time, working with my team and having my family to back me. It is a dream come true that this happened in Argentina.”

Previewing another multi-continent, multi-surface week in Dubai, Rio, Doha, and Los Cabos.

For many players, this is a short-flight week. In South America, the men jump from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janiero; in the Middle East, the women make the hour-long jaunt across the Persia Gulf from Doha to Dubai.

Dubai Duty Free Championships (WTA)

The Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships is the second WTA 1000 tournament of the season and comes on the heels of the first WTA 1000 of the year at the Qatar TotalEnergies Open.

The tournament will take place from February 18 to 24.

A finalist last year, World No.1 Iga Swiatek leads the way along with No.2 Aryna Sabalenka, who is set to play her first tournament since winning the Australian Open. Reigning US Open champion Coco Gauff and No.4 Elena Rybakina round out the Top 4 seeds.

Rio Open (ATP)

Carlos Alcaraz leads a strong field at the Rio Open, the season’s first ATP 500 event on claycourt set to be played in the Brazilian city from February 18 to 25.

Looking to challenge Alcaraz will be defending champion Cameron Norrie and a host of claycourt specialists – Nicolas Jarry, Sebastian Baez, and Francisco Cerundolo to name a few.

Mifel Tennis Open (ATP)

The 2024 Los Cabos Open also known as Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo for sponsorship reasons takes place in Mexico between February 19-24, 2024 on hard courts and is a usual stop on the ATP 250 Calendar.

Los Cabos kicks it off this week with a surprisingly strong field for a 250. Top seed Alexander Zverev will try to put his brutal semifinal defeat to Daniil Medvedev at the Australian Open behind him. Second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas will try to do the same after his loss to Taylor Fritz in Melbourne. De Minaur will try to figure out which side of the world he’s on after his flight from Rotterdam.

Qatar Exxonmobil Open (ATP)

The 2024 Qatar Open is the 32nd edition of the Qatar Open, a men’s tennis tournament to be played on outdoor hard courts. It is part of the ATP Tour 250 tournaments of the 2024 ATP Tour, and will take place at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex in Doha, Qatar from 19 to 24 February 2024.

The headliners will be fellow Russians and sometimes doubles partners Andrey Rublev and Karen Khachanov, who are seeded one and two.
