Last week, two 500-level tournaments were played and a number of Americans had strong runs in both singles and doubles. Both men and women reached the quarterfinals or better around the world. With this week's tournaments over, here are the Americans who are making a splash three months into the season:
Quarterfinalist, ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament ATP 500
The strongest showing at a tournament so far in 2021, Tommy Paul reached the quarterfinals in Rotterdam before losing in straight sets to Marton Fucsovics. Before getting knocked out, the American took down two Top 50 players in the Netherlands. In 2021, Paul has not played past the second round of a tournament until now.
