Pulling from the field were Pablo Carreno Busta, Borna Coric, Richard Gasquet, Yuichi Sugita and Janko Tipsarevic…

Former tournaments winners include modern-day former No. 1s Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Gustavo Kuerten, Marcelo Rios, Stefan Edberg and Ivan Lendl…

Former champs in the field are the defending champ Klizan who beat Cuevas in last year’s final, and Simon (2011).
