The Top Seeds

[1] David Goffin

Few will forget the site of Goffin’s ankle twisting horribly as he got tangled in the tarpaulin in his third round match in Roland Garros, but miraculously nothing was broken, and after skipping the entire grass court season, the Belgian is back. He started with one win in Umag and heads to Gstaad where he made the final on his debut in 2015.


[2] Roberto Bautista Agut

The consistent Spaniard continues to be… well… consistent. He returns to Gstaad for the first time in four years, were as the eighth seed he did not last very long, heading home after the second round. He will look to be a little more solid this time around, having started the year with a win in Chennai, and his best result on clay this year was in Munich, where he reached the semi-final.


[3] Feliciano Lopez

Lopez picked up the Queen’s title on his way to a disappointing first round exit at Wimbledon, and returns to the clay where his has been steady, but unremarkable this year on the dirt. Still, as the defending champion in Gstaad he has shown decent form here over the years, often a regular at the quarter-final stage and beyond.


[4] Fabio Fognini

After giving Andy Murray a bit of a scare at Wimbledon, Fognini was back in action for this summer clay court flurry, but made a quarter-final exit in Umag. It has been a while since he has graced this tournament with his presence, having failed to make it out of qualification in 2007. A lot has changed for Fognini in terms of ranking and form since then, and he really ought to expect at least a second quarter-final in a row.

The J Safra Sarasin Swiss Open Gstaad takes place between 24-30 July, (BST +1 hour).
