STARNBERG, June 25, 2018

Adrian Mannarino is the top seed in an ATP World Tour draw for the second time, leading the field this week at the Turkish Airlines Open Antalya. The 24-year-old Frenchman, who reached the final in Belek last year, seeks his maiden tour-level title. After a first-round bye, Mannarino will start against Evgeny Donskoy or Ricardas Berankis

Japan’s Yuichi Sugita, the No. 7 seed, is the defending champion. Wild cards and former Top 10 players Fernando Verdasco and Gael Monfils will also look to make a splash on the grass in Turkey, with Wimbledon beginning in one week.

Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka both accepted wild cards into the Nature Valley International in Eastbourne this week, joining a draw in which World No. 11 Diego Schwartzman is the top seed. The 25-year-old Argentine will open his title bid against either qualifier Roberto Quiroz from Ecuador or Slovakian Lukas Lacko.

Murray and Wawrinka were drawn against one another in the first round, setting up their 19th FedEx ATP Head2Head meeting on Monday. There will be plenty of exciting action to watch throughout the week, with British No. 1 Kyle Edmund, #NextGenATP Canadian Denis Shapovalov and others attempting to make their mark on the grass.
