Four of the top 10 players will be playing this week in the China Open. Being one of the most prominent 500 series tournament, this is certainly an important ones for the players.
World no. 2 Andy Murray is the top seed here, who is now getting closer and closer to the top place. With four titles and a record of 55-9, he was the quarter-finalist in the US Open. He hasn't won a title since the Wimbledon, and is certainly eager to break that jinx. Rafael Nadal is the second seed here, who has moved to the fourth place in the rankings after a grueling season. He too is coming in fresh after the US Open. Even though he hasn't been at his best this season, he still will be on the minds of all the players in his half. Milos Raonic is the third seeded player, who is coming in with 43-13. However, his performance over the last couple of events has been shaky, having failed to move past the early rounds. Lastly, young Austrian Dominic Thiem is the fourth seed, whose tally so far is 55-18. He last played in ATP Chengdu, where he was the quarter finalist.
Before that, he was the runner-up in Moselle Open. This is certainly a prequel to the World Tour Finals in many ways. It will be interesting to see this event play out.

The China Open is an outdoor hard court tournament held annually in Beijing, China. It is one of the few tournaments that invites the men the women as well, but still comes with a notable exception.
While with the ladies the tourney is a Premier Mandatory event (the highest non-Grand Slam level), it is actually an ATP 500 competition on the men’s side. Because of these reasons the difference in total prize money is rather substantial. In the men’s side the tournament will be held for the 17thtime with most of the elite coming back trying to earn valuable ranking points and get a piece of the $2,500,470 prize. Reigning champion (and record, five-time winner) Novak Djokovic will try to defend his title which is something he already did in the last two years. He has won the last three tournaments and with Roger Federer (pretty much his only 2015 rival) prolonging his break trying to get ready for Basel, the Serbian is the overwhelming favorite. Rafael Nadal, the 2005 champion and 2013 finalist will also be in the main draw, but his form this year has been erratic to say the least.
It is tough to envision him making it to the weekend, let alone defeating Djokovic on a hard court which is something he could not achieve in the last two years.
