The Top Seeds

[1] Alexander Zverev

After what must have felt like a disappointing early exit at Wimbledon, Zverev makes his return but as defending champion. Having finally broken his Slam duck of making it past a fourth round, expectation is now on the younger generation to stand up and be counted, and now would be a good time for them to make some waves ahead of the US Open.

The standout potential match up would be a first ATP World Tour level clash between the Zverev Brothers. Mischa Zverev has faced his baby brother twice in a challenger and in Houston qualifying but that last encounter was back in 2014 and it is fair to say the dynamic has changed a bit.

It continues to be a solid year for the American. Having made the Wimbledon semi-final, he will be gunning for a fifth Atlanta title ahead of heading to Washington, where he has reached the final three times but has yet to lift the silverware.

Isner’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Mikhail Youzhny
  • R3: Andrey Rublev [16]
  • QF: Lucas Pouille [6]

[3] David Goffin

It has been a while since Goffin graced Washington with his presence, where he bowed out in the second round, and has not returned since. This will be Goffin’s first tournament since Wimbledon, and should feel confident to better his 2013 performance.

Goffin’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Pierre-Hugues Herbert
  • R3: Frances Tiafoe [13]
  • QF: Nick Kyrgios [5]
  • SF: Alexander Zverev [1]
  • F: John Isner

 

[4] Kyle Edmund

Also playing in his first match since Wimbledon, the British No. 1 could meet the British No. 838, Andy Murray in his opener. Edmund gave a good account of himself against eventual Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic, and also beat Murray in Eastbourne so his confidence against the former World No. 1 should be high enough to see him past his previous best here in the second round.

Edmund’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Mackenzie McDonald
  • R3: Jeremy Chardy [14]
  • QF: Hyeon Chung [8]
  • SF: John Isner [2]
  • F: Alexander Zverev [1]
The Citi Open takes place between 30 Jul – 5 August (BST -5 hours)
