ATLANTA, USA – Three-time champion John Isner returns to the tournament where he has made the final no less than six times, looking for a fourth crown.

The Top Seeds

[1] Jack Sock

The No. 1 American hit a career high this year in April (No. 14) having won the final in Delray Beach and making the Indian Wells semi-final, but away from home soil he has had no back to back wins and was a surprise early exit in Wimbledon. Despite reaching the semi-final in Atlanta in 2014, he’s been away from the tournament for the last couple of years.


[2] John Isner

The big serving American was halted on his quest for a fourth straight title in what might well become known as the Isner Open, he will be bidding to pick up that fourth title in his regular stop off. He will be coming in off the back of a run to the Newport final, and should expect a decent run here as he makes the shift from grass to the hard courts.


[3] Gilles Muller

What a year it has been for the tour veteran. He won his first title in Sydney at the start of the year, and won Den Bosch on the way to knocking out Rafael Nadal in Wimbledon. Having cracked the top 30 this year, he will look to reproduce the kind of form that saw him start the year with trophy-ware.

He is no stranger to going deep in Atlanta – he made the final in 2012 and on his last outing made the semi-final, but has not been back here for a couple of years.


[4] Ryan Harrison

After winning his first tour-level final in Memphis, it has been a singularly unimpressive run from the American. Apart from reaching the quarter-finals of Estoril, he has failed to pick up back to back wins since May. He has been a semi-finalist twice in Atlanta, and will no doubt be looking for a return to that kind of form as he takes to the courts again for the first time since Wimbledon.

The BB&T Atlanta Open takes place between 24-30 July.
