Notes:

Dimitrov the lone Top 10er in the field…

Tough start for (5) Gasquet vs. Coric, then Paire…

Qualifying to the main draw were Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis, France’s Quentin Halys, Germany’s Yannick Maden and France’s Gleb Sakharov…

Paolo Lorenzi withdrew from the event…

Andy Murray beat Fernando Verdasco in last year’s final…

There are no former champions in the field.
