With David Goffin withdrawing after a freak eye injury in Rotterdam, Wawrinka is the highest seed standing as he continues his comeback after injury. He was never really expected to make much headway at the Australian Open as his first tournament back, but looked more solid in Sofia on the way to the semi-final but was out early in Rotterdam.
He ought to be expected to get to at least the quarterfinal where he could face Gilles Muller, but it still looks very much like a work in progress at the moment.

The Frenchman will be looking to find the form he had in Montpellier after a pretty subdued start to his season. He was out in the first round of the Australian Open, but came back to win the Montpellier title. He was out first round in Rotterdam, but he looks to have a decent quarter bracket. He is set to face Filip Krajinovic at that stage.
It looks as though the Czech is at least returning to some consistency this year (if we generously discount his first round loss in the Doha season opener!)
He made the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, and in Rotterdam and his draw really ought to see him put in a deep run beyond the quarter-finals at least. His last two outings in Marseille have seen him reach the finals and semi-finals so it is definitely an environment that suits him.
The Open 13 Provence takes place between 20-26 February – (GMT +1 hours).
