Also in the top half of the draw is third seed Hubert Hurkacz, who got off to an impressive start to his season when he lifted the Delray Beach Open title.

Alongside Karen Khachanov in the bottom half of the draw is 19-year-old prospect Jannik Sinner and South African star Kevin Anderson, who is unseeded in this event.
