[1] Rafael Nadal

The World No. 1 and US Open champion picked up where he left off with an unbeaten run to the Beijing final but had to come from a set down in his opener, perhaps just a little rusty. There should be no such issues by the time he reaches Shanghai, as he bids to win this title for the first time. Last year he was bounced out in his opener, but he looks to be a lot more match sharp.

He looks set to meet No. 6 seed Grigor Dimitrov in the quarter-finals – the Bulgarian fought back impressively in the Beijing semi-final before falling away in the deciding set, so can he give the Spaniard pause for thought once more?

 

[2] Roger Federer

It has been a long break for Federer, who like Nadal has already secured his place at the Nitto ATP World Tour Finals. With two more Masters 1000 events to rack up points, we’ll see just how tuned up Federer is.

He won the title in 2014, but like Nadal his most recent memory in Shanghai was a short-lived one, losing in the opening round back in 2015, returning for the first time in two years.

 

[3] Alexander Zverev

Having sealed his spot in the season ending finale in London, Zverev is on his way to Shanghai after falling in the Beijing semi-final but seems to be rounding into some consistent form, as he makes his debut in Shanghai.

He has the prospect of Juan Martin Del Potro on his way to a possible quarter-final with Dominic Thiem.

 

[4] Marin Cilic

After his run to the semi-finals in Tokyo, Cilic returns to Shanghai in a bid to at least put up a better showing than he did last year. Bounced out in his opening round, this time around he could be looking at a third round clash with Nick Kyrgios, and potentially a quarter-final with Pablo Carreno Busta, who has enjoyed a breakout year.

 

The Shanghai Rolex Masters takes place between 9-15 October
