Due to Covid-19, the 2021 calendar has been modified. All players who wanted to participate in Australian Open, were gathered in Melbourne earlier than usually, and after a quarantine they played three Melbourne events the same week (ATP Cup, Murray River Open & Great Ocean Road Open). “Murray River Open” won Dan Evans, claiming his maiden title, at “Great Ocean Road Open” the best was Sinner  who outlasted in the first all-Italian final since 1988, ten years older Travaglia , who played his first ATP final. The 19-year-old Italian finished the previous season with a title, and began another season with his second title: “Obviously, the confidence is there. [My] second ATP title, and this one is a bit different. [It was a] tough week for every player, playing twice in one day [on Friday]. Yesterday, I had a tough match against Karen [Khachanov], so today I’m very happy about my performance.”
…the following day Sinner lost a four-hour match to Shapovalov 6-3, 3-6, 2-6, 6-4, 4-6 in the Australian Open first round.
