UMAG, Croatia; Surface: clay

Seeds: Kyle Edmund, Damir Dzumhur, Marco Cecchinato, Andrey Rublev, Albert Ramos Vinolas, Robin Haase, Joao Sousa, Benoit Paire

Notes:

No Top 15 players in the field, but strong claycourters among the seeds…

The Top 4 seeds receive opening-round byes…

Not a lot of talent in the field outside the seeds…

Wildcards went to Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime and Croats Nino Serdarusic and Franko Skugor…

Pulling out of the tournament field were Guillermo Garcia Lopez, Filip Krajinovic and Andreas Seppi…

Rublev beat Paolo Lorenzi in last year’s final…

Former champs in the field are Rublev (2017) and Cuevas (2014).
