[1] Rafael Nadal

As with many of the top flight players, Nadal makes his return to the tour since losing in the Wimbledon semi-final but returns with the confidence of having won last year’s edition on the hard courts of Canada, in Toronto.

Of course on paper, Nadal has winning records against everyone but all his opponents have returned to the tour early, with just Dominic Thiem preferring to play on clay post-Wimbledon.

The Austrian returned to his beloved clay post-Wimbledon, and it was a disappointing SW19 at that with a first round exit. He has picked up some valuable points, but can he get his hard court legs under him. Canada has really not been a great hunting ground for him – never been past the second round in either location.

In actual fact his draw does not look that bad in terms of his records but it depends on how quickly he can adapt to the surface against players who have already been in action in this part of the swing.

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

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Denis Shapovalov
  • R3: Marin Cilic [14]
  • QF: Daniil Medvedev [8]
  • SF: Alexander Zverev [3]

[3] Alexander Zverev

It has been a frustrating time for Zverev – a spat with his former manager, the resignation of Ivan Lendl for a partnership that never really got started, and of course as the last Slam of the year rolls around, expectation will be high once more on the young German’s shoulders.

On paper his record is favourable up to facing Thiem in the semi-finals, although he has their only hard-court win but it all comes down to whether he can be allowed to be free of other distractions. He reached the semi-final of Hamburg but will need to adjust now to the hard courts.

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

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Marton Fucsovics
  • R3: Nikoloz Basilashvili [13]
  • QF: Karen Khachanov [6]
  • SF: Dominic Thiem [2]

[4] Stefanos Tsitsipas

After a mournful Wimbledon exit, Tsisipas came back to good effect in Washington, making the semi-final and his draw is not too bad in the early rounds.

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Taylor Fritz
  • R3: Gael Monfils [16]
  • QF: Kei Nishikori [5]
