[1] Dominic Thiem

Fresh from inaugural Laver Cup duty, Thiem will look to go further than his appearance in the first edition of the Chengdu Open, where he reached the quarter-final. It was a fairly steady US swing for the Austrian work-horse who still seems to take any tournament going and last year he had just one win to his name in the Asian swing so he will be looking to perform a lot better this time around.

 

[2] Albert Ramos-Vinolas

The Spaniard has enjoyed a standout year in 2017 which saw him hit a career high of World No. 17 as he backed up a solid season on the clay with runs to the finals in Sao Paulo and Monte Carlo. Since then he has slipped back down the rankings a little.

Kast year’s defeated finalist will look to use this as a platform to maybe have a slightly more successful end to the Asian swing than he did last year, where he was bounced out in the opening rounds of Beijing and Shanghai last year.

 

[3] Karen Khachanov

Despite hitting a career high just before the US Open, defending champion Khachanov was a surprise first round exit in New York. The site of his first ATP World Tour win should provide him with the motivation to kick-start his Asian swing.

Last year, coming into the tournament ranked just outside the World Top 100, it was a great announcement of his arrival on the tour as part of the #NextGen of players and he has risen steadily – and should be one to watch over the closing stages of the season as he will have plenty of points on offer.

 

[4] Andrey Rublev

In quite a contrast to his #NextGen compatriot, Rublev, who is just behind Khachanov in the Race to Milan had a far better US Open campaign and although he has had a bit of time off, he will be hoping that momentum will help him chase his fellow countryman all the way to Italy.

This time last year he was ranked just inside the Top 200 and was still plying most of his trade on the ATP Challenger circuit, so there are plenty of points on offer for the young Russian.

 

The Chengdu Open takes place between 25 September to 1 October.
