[1] Novak Djokovic

After the uncertainty of injury niggles over the summer for the World No. 1 he has been making waves on his Tokyo debut and setting his form up well for the end of the season, and the penultimate Masters 1000 event.

On paper, this is a solid draw for the four-time and defending champion with either tied or winning records over his potential opponents, but it will be interesting to see how he handles Daniil Medvedev. The man was in superb form in the us hard court summer, and has won his last two matches against Djokovic.

It has been a long break for Federer, who has secured his spot at the ATP Finals and with no Davis Cup final to worry about, he can concentrate on a final push to conclude in London.

A two-time champion in Shanghai, Federer’s path looks fine until he reaches the semi-final, where he trails Thiem in their head to head, and of course Djokovic. Both will be just a tough more match-sharp, but with Paris coming up indoors, expect Federer to pick up momentum.

[3] Daniil Medvedev

The man of the summer had to be the slender Russian. Medvedev made five finals back to back, winning two of them, including claiming his maiden Masters title, so how will the draw treat him?

It could be a tricky start though – he has yet to win against the Frenchman, but he could at least edge a little further than his second round of last year.

[4] Dominic Thiem

Thiem has been making the most of the end of a disappointing US hard-court summer with reaching the final in Beijing, as he too closes in to the end of his season.

However it might be a little tricky. He has tricky match-ups until he gets to the semi-final, and even though he has a winning record over Federer, he will have an uphill task if he makes it to a final against Djokovic.
