Ruud will put up a strong fight but ultimately cannot stand up to Medvedev. In the second semi-final, Novak Djokovic should win against Zverev. He is ranked at the top. The final might feature Medvedev going up against Djokovic. In this came, Medvedev is likely to defeat Djokovic.
Coming to the doubles category, the team of Pavic/Mektic should reach the final with little to no difficulty. In the second semi-final, we shall experience quite a fierce battle. It is difficult to predict this match, but I will go with Zeballos/Granollers. Zeballos/Granollers should ultimately win the tournament in the doubles category, thus ending the last tournament of 2021 under the ATP Tour 2021.
