NEW YORK OPEN
Long Island, New York, USA; surface: hard


Seeds: Kevin Anderson, Sam Querrey, John Isner, Adrian Mannarino, Kei Nishikori, Ryan Harrison, Steve Johnson, Nikoloz Basilashvili

Floaters: none

Notes:

It is the first edition of the event in New York after it relocated from Memphis, taking place at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale; the tournament reportedly will be the first on the ATP World Tour to use black tennis courts…

No Top 10ers in the field, and the Top 4 seeds receive opening-round byes…

Few threats to the seeds, but interesting openers include Frances Tiafoe vs. Australian Open juniors winner Sebastian Korda in an all-American, (5) Nishikori vs. American Noah Rubin, (6) Ryan Harrison vs. Donald Young in an all-American, and American Jared Donaldson vs. Ivo Karlovic…

Wildcards were awarded to Americans Korda, Rubin and Mackenzie McDonald…

Australian Open semifinalist Chung Hyeon withdrew (foot blisters)…

The Bryan brothers are the top seeds in doubles.
