In the other tournaments of the season, Fucsovics did not tally more than two victories, apart from in Indian Wells Championships, where he reached the 1/8 final, defeating Wolf, De Minaur and Molcán, but later lost to Fritz. At the start of the season, Marton won the Challenger in Canberra on hard court.
