Route to the Final


The top four seeds have a bye in the first round. 

Jannik Sinner takes on Egor Gerasimov in the second round and if successful, has a relatively easy run to the final.

The bottom half of the draw sees the winner of Ilya Ivashka vs Gaël Monfils with a great chance to reach the final.

Jannik Sinner


Sinner won the Washington Open in August before early exits at the Canada Masters and Cincinnati Masters.

The Italian reached the US Open fourth round where he went down to Alexander Zverev.

Ilya Ivashka


Ilya Ivashka has been in great form that has seen him break into the Top 50.

He won the title at Winston-Salem before a tough 5 set defeat to Matteo Berrettini in the US Open third round.

The Belarusian reached the semi-finals in Nur-Sultan last week where he lost to James Duckworth.

Outsiders


John Millman hasn't won since taking out the title in Nur-Sultan in Octover 2020. Gaël Monfils hasn't reached a final since Rotterdam in February 2020.

Alex De Minaur won the title at Eastbourne on grass, but has failed to fire on hard courts and has lost six of his last seven matches.

Filip Krajinovic has lost 10 of his last 12 matches against Top 100 players on hard courts.
