Australian Open entry lists out, stars miss out on seedings

The entry lists for the first grand slam tournament of 2018 have been released. A lot of familiar names look set for unfamiliar seedings.

 

World No.1 Rafael Nadal is the top seed. He is followed by Roger Federer, Grigor Dimitrov, and Alexander Zverev.

Yet is further down the lists that some names look oddly placed. Novak Djokovic is set for the 12th seed, one place behind Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro. Fellow former No.1 Andy Murray is set to be seeded 16th. Former grand slam finalists Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic are set for the 21st and 24th seeds respectively.

In the 30th seeded position Bosnia’s Damir Dzumhur looks set for a seeding at a grand slam for the first time in his career. Richard Gasquet (31) and Pablo Cuevas (32) grab the last two seedings according to this entry list. Cuevas earned a timely move up the rankings late in the season after winning the Montevideo Challenger that boosted his chances of a seed.

Some familiar names have missed out completely on seedings. Former Roland Garros finalist David Ferrer (37) will be a tough draw for anyone in the first round, as will Queen’s champion Feliciano Lopez (36). Other names without seedings include Fernando Verdasco, Gael Monfils, and Gilles Simon.

Next Gen stars Andrey Rublev, Jared Donaldson, and Denis Shapovalov will also feature after being confirmed. Four players have a protected ranking strong enough for direct entry into the event. These players are Andreas Haider-Maurer, Yoshihito Nishioka, John Millman, and Ricardas Berankis.

The first group of alternates are also listed. These are players to be moved into the main draw should a withdrawal take place. These include the United States’ Taylor Fritz, former Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis, and Davis Cup winner Nicolas Mahut. James Duckworth and Pablo Andujar’s protected rankings are enough to see them into the alternates list.

Updated Entry Lists For Great Ocean Road Open and Murray River Open

The two ATP 250 tournaments will be played in Melbourne just before the Australian Open.

 

The Melbourne Summer Series will start with an updated schedule to give more time to the quarantined tennis players to get ready. Three men’s tournaments will take place in the first week: the ATP Cup and two ATP 250 events, where the entries are reserved for the players who are already in Australia.

Melbourne-1 and Melbourne-2 are scheduled to happen from the 1st to the 7th of February with a special format: the main draws have been expanded to 56 players and the qualifying tournament has been cancelled. That should give the chance to compete to the players who could not practice at all during the hard quarantine.

David Goffin, Karen Khachanov, Hubert Hurkacz, Jannik Sinner, Feliciano Lopez and many more players are committed to play the Great Ocean Road Open (Melbourne-1). Stan Wawrinka, Grigor Dimitrov, Felix Auger-Aliassime and Borna Coric lead the field for the Murray River Open (Melbourne-2).
