20-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas is the top seed at the Open 13 Provence in a draw that is dotted with talented youngsters. This ATP 250 hardcourt tournament was, in fact, won by a member of the next generation last year -- Karen Khachanov.
This time the World No. 12 Greek will hope to grab this opportunity with both hands especially since he failed to do much at Sofia and Rotterdam after his sizzling run to the semi-finals of the Australian Open.
22-year-old Borna Coric, the second seed at this tournament, will be playing his first competitive event since bowing out in the pre-quarter-finals of the Australian Open to eventual semi-finalist Lucas Pouille.
David Goffin, the third seed, has endured a painful run on the ATP World Tour since the year's first Major. Opening round losses to Filip Krajinovic and Gael Monfils at Montpellier and Rotterdam respectively have clearly made a dent in his confidence levels and he will be trying hard to make a roaring comeback in Marseille.
19-year-old Denis Shapovalov is the other member of the NextGen ATP star brigade who has received a top 4 seeding. The Canadian made a statement by knocking out Tomas Berdych en route to the quarter-finals at Rotterdam last week and would be keen to build on that form.
