Only one Top 10 player in Belgian David Goffin, but the French contingent is strong at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier:


Seeds: David Goffin, Lucas Pouille, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Damir Dzumhur, Richard Gasquet, Andrey Rublev, David Ferrer, Yuichi Sugita

Floaters: Gilles Simon, Karen Khachanov, Daniil Medvedev, Dustin Brown, Nicolas Mahut

Notes:

The Top 4 seeds receive opening-round byes…

Lots of quality in the field, including 10 Frenchmen…

Tough starts for (1) Goffin vs. Simon, (7) Ferrer vs. the powerful Khachanov, (5) Gasquet vs. the riser Medvedev, and (3) Tsonga vs. the Brown-Mahut winner…(2) Pouille starts against a qualifier…

Wildcards were handed to the Frenchmen Pouille, Julien Benneteau and Calvin Hemery…

Withdrawing from the tournament were Tomas Berdych, Steve Darcis and Peter Gojowczyk…

Missing is defending champion Alexander Zverev, who beat Gasquet in last year’s final…

The four-time champion Gasquet (2016-15,’13,’06) is the lone former champion in the field.
