[1] Novak Djokovic

Back in action after his ill-fated Adria Tour which eventually descended into coronavirus chaos, Djokovic is one of a few European players to make the trip out to the US, ahead of a depleted US Open field.

Two years ago, Djokovic grabbed the elusive Cincinnati Masters title, and the field is certainly set for him to have a good run.

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

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Qualifier/Tommy Paul [WC]
  • R3: Felix Auger-Aliassime [15] | First Meeting
  • QF: David Goffin [7] | H2H: Djokovic leads 7-1
  • SF: Daniil Medvedev [3] | H2H: Djokovic leads 4-2
  • F: Dominic Thiem [2] | H2H: Djokovic leads 7-4

 

[2] Dominic Thiem

True to form, since lockdown started to ease globally, Thiem has been pretty busy on the courts, in the Austrian domestic Pro Series, the Adria Tour, and the Ultimate Tennis Showdown backed up with his own tournament and two Bett tournaments in Germany. Thiem came out with just three losses in 28 matches, so it is probably fair to say he is the most match-fit of the seeds!

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

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Filip Krajinovic | H2H: Thiem leads 1-0 (Challenger)
  • R3: Grigor Dimitrov [14] | H2H: Dimitrov leads 3-2
  • QF: Alexander Zverev [5] | H2H: Thiem leads 7-2
  • SF: Stefanos Tsitsipas [4] | H2H: Thiem leads 4-3
  • F: Novak Djokovic [1] | H2H: Djokovic leads 7-4

[3] Daniil Medvedev

After an incredible breakthrough US Open Series last year, which culminated in a thriller of a US Open final, Medvedev cemented his status in the upper echelons of the rankings.

Medvedev has not been on the exhibition trail as his other seeds, having last played in Marseille in February.

Medvedev’s Path to the final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: QUALIFIER
  • R3: Cristian Garin [13] | H2H: Medvedev leads 1-0
  • QF: Roberto Bautista Agut [8] | H2H: Bautista Agut leads 1-0
  • SF: Novak Djokovic [1] | H2H: Djokovic leads 4-2
  • F: Dominic Thiem [2] | H2H: Thiem leads 2-1

 

[4] Stefanos Tsitsipas

Tsitsipas probably is the next most match-fit player in among the top seeds having played throughout Patrick Mouratoglou’s Ultimate Tennis Showdown.

The Cincinnati based editions have not been a particularly successful hunting ground for the Greek, having only made it as far as the second round last year. A tough draw ahead suggests maybe the quarters if he is lucky.

Tsitsipas’ Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Kyle Edmund | H2H: Tsitsipas leads 1-0
  • R3: John Isner [16] | H2H: Isner leads 2-1
  • QF: Matteo Berrettini [8] | H2H: Tsitsipas leads 2-0 (incl. Qualifying)
  • SF: Dominic Thiem [2] | H2H: Thiem leads 4-3
  • F: Novak Djokovic [1] | H2H: Djokovic leads 3-2
The Western & Southern Open takes place between 22-28 August (BST -5 hours)
