Australian Open entry lists out, stars miss out on seedings

Spain’s Feliciano Lopez could have a tough first round draw after being confirmed in a place outside the seedings (Zimbio.com)

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.

Entry List For Montreal LIVE

Published

The Canadian Master 1000 will take place from the 5th to the 11th of August at the IGA Stadium in Montreal.

 

The Coupe Rogers has been played since 1881, having the third-longest history in the ATP Tour, after Wimbledon and US Open. Rod Laver, Ilie Nastase, Bjorn Borg, Ivan Lendl (6 times), John McEnroe, Patrick Rafter and Andre Agassi are some of the tournament’s past champions.

Spain’s Rafael Nadal won last year’s edition in Toronto, while Germany’s Alexander Zverev took the title in 2017, in Montreal. With Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer not competing, the Spaniard will be the favourite.

“After Wimbledon I felt a bit tired and I had to rest, but then I practiced well and I will be in good physical condition in Montreal. I will get used to the hard court in the last few days before the tournament.
I will see how Montreal goes to decide if to play or not in Cincinnati.” Nadal said.

The three-time champion Andy Murray will play doubles with the 37 year-old Feliciano Lopez, who will also play in singles. They will look for their second title together of the season, after winning the Queen’s Club Championships in June.

NEWS: Frances Tiafoe withdraws, Cameron Norrie takes his place in the main draw.

NEWS: Franchman former champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will play with a Wild-Card.
