STARNBERG, October 15, 2018
Marco Cecchinato and Daniil Medvedev, the Top 2 seeds at the VTB Kremlin Cup, will look to continue career-best seasons this week in Moscow.
There are plenty of other competitors who can challenge for the trophy, though. Third seed Karen Khachanov advanced to the semi-finals of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Toronto earlier this year, Aussie Nick Kyrgios triumphed in Brisbane and No. 6 seed Damir Dzumhur is the defending champion.
Defending champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will try to kickstart his comeback at the European Open. The Frenchman, who owns 16 ATP World Tour titles, is playing just his second tournament since returning from left knee surgery. But there is a loaded field in Antwerp that also wants to lift the trophy.
Kyle Edmund, the British No. 1, leads the group as the top seed. Richard Gasquet, the 2016 titlist, carries the momentum of a victory in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and a semi-final in Tokyo into Belgium, where two-time finalist Diego Schwartzman is the No. 2 seed. #NextGenATP competitors Frances Tiafoe and Jaume Munar will also try to make an impact in Antwerp
At the 50th edition of the Intrum Stockholm Open, a new champion will be crowned. The Top 2 seeds are John Isner and Fabio Fognini, who are at No. 10 and No. 12 in the ATP Race To London, respectively, as both players seek their first appearance at the Nitto ATP Finals.
They are joined in Sweden by #NextGenATP stars Stefanos Tsitsipas, Denis Shapovalov, Alex de Minaur and Taylor Fritz. All four of those players are pursuing their maiden ATP World Tour titles. Reigning Next Gen ATP Finals champion Hyeon Chung is also in the field.
