Fresh off a second French Open title, Novak Djokovic will makes his grass debut in Mallorca. However, not in singles, but in doubles. The Wimbledon favorite will partner will 31-year-old Spaniard Carlo Gomez-Herrera.
While Djokovic will forego with the singles, plenty of star power will be fighting for that trophy.
Daniil Medvedev is the top seeded with Dominic Thiem No. 2. Roberta Bautista Agut, Pablo Carreno Busta, Casper Ruud, Ugo Humbert and Dusan Lajovic round out the Top 8 seeds.
Medvedev, who has never won grass title, could meet Casper Ruud in the quarters with Carreno Busta in the semifinals.
In the bottom half, Thiem will face Adrian Mannarino to start, then possibly Karen Khachanov in the quarters and Halle champion Humbert in the semifinals.
Thiem beat Roger Federer to win his lone grass title at 2016 Stuttgart.
This is the first year of the event which was supposed to make its debut last year.
