5. Murray wins multiple 2020 titles

Andy Murray was named the ATP Tour’s Comeback Player of the Year but there remains much uncertainty about how he will fare over a full season as he adapts to life back on the circuit after undergoing hip resurfacing surgery.

The Briton’s withdrawal from the ATP Cup and Australian Open tempered expectations about what he can achieve in 2020.

But Murray is a determined character and fierce competitor. He would not be back if, deep down, he did not feel he had at least a fighting chance of returning to somewhere near his previous best.

After his win at the European Open in 2019, we are tipping Murray to win multiple ATP Tour titles this year.

6. Shapovalov reaches the ATP Finals

There is a huge group of talented young players on the ATP Tour ready to surge up the rankings in 2020 and picking the best of those is no easy task.

After years of promise, Denis Shapovalov really started putting everything together in the second half of 2019.

The Canadian is primed for a year of further impressive progress and is backed to perform well enough to ensure he is playing at the ATP Finals in London at the end of the year.

7. Wonderkid Sinner makes a major move

Jannik Sinner is comfortably the highest ranked player aged 18 and under on the ATP Tour and this offseason many fans and analysts have really began to understand his potential.

The Italian won the Next Gen ATP Finals and was voted Newcomer of the Year by his fellow players last year.

Still lacking experience at the highest level, Sinner enters 2020 having only ever played one Grand Slam match, a first-round US Open loss to Stan Wawrinka.

But Jannik Sinner is already making big strides and looks to be the real deal.

Next. WTA stars who can dominate the 2020s. dark

As part of him making a huge rise up the rankings this year, it is predicted Sinner will make the second week in at least one of the Grand Slam tournaments, which means reaching the fourth round or better.
