[1] Marin Cilic

Another player who was enjoying being part of the Laver Cup experience, the former US Open champion had a rough ride after blisters stymied his Wimbledon final, not playing again until the US Open, where he was edged by the No. 8 seed here, Diego Schwartzman.

His place in the London line-up looks pretty secure for now as he returns to Tokyo. It has been a tournament that has served him pretty well the last two years. He made the quarter-final in 2015, went one better last year, and will be expected to be front and centre on finals weekend.

 

[2] Dominic Thiem

Perhaps a little too much Laver Cup champers for the No. 2 seed who crashed out of Chengdu last week, where he was the top seed. Whatever happens, he will hope that he can at least go better than his debut here in 2014, where he was bounced out in the first round. Then again after Chengdu, he will want a win anyway.

 

[3] Milos Raonic

Injuries continue to plague Raonic, who had to skip the US Open, and will be making his return to the tour after almost a two month break. It is telling that the Canadian is not even anywhere near the running for London, so that will not be a distraction for him as he looks to salvage his year.

A three time finalist, Raonic has yet to lift the prize, and it might be a tough ask to expect him to have another deep run on his first tournament back.

 

[4] David Goffin

Coming into Tokyo with his first title of 2017, the Belgian’ confidence is up, and last year’s runner-up will look to go one better this time around.

It could be a big finish to the year for Goffin, who helped his country to their second Davis Cup final in three years, although it could be a big push for him to also make London too.

The Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships takes place 2-8 October.
