[1] Stan Wawrinka

Wawrinka has not played since reaching the quarter-finals in Paris but was at least able to train during the quarantine period. If he can get past Richard Gasquet in the battle of the stylish single-handed backhands, he could have a long run this week.

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

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Juan Ignacio Londero | H2H: First Meeting
  • R3: Richard Gasquet [14] | H2H: Gasquet leads 2-1
  • QF: Taylor Fritz [6] | H2H: Wawrinka leads 2-0
  • SF: Borna Coric [4] | H2H: Wawrinka leads 3-1
  • F: Grigor Dimitrov [2] | H2H: Wawrinka leads 7-5

If Wawrinka has had a long break, Dimitrov has been off the scene for a lot longer. He spoke frankly about the effects of coronavirus on his conditioning last year, and he called a halt to his season after Vienna at the end of October.

It is not the easiest of draws for the Bulgarian, who has shown flashes of the brilliance that was expected of him, but never consistently enough to put him in the running for the majors.

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

  • R1: BYE
  • R2: Taro Daniel | H2H: Tied at 1-1
  • R3: Tommy Paul [15] | H2H: Tied at 1-1

[3] Felix Auger-Aliassime

Such is the depth of Canadian tennis at the moment, Auger-Aliassime’s flare and crowd-pleasing shot making will not be required for the ATP Cup as he lands a seeding here. His momentum at the start of last year, which saw him each back to back finals in Rotterdam and Marseille – the latter landing him with a title.

He could be a good pick for a deep run here.
