The top seed has been bagged by the Brit Daniel Evans, who has won a couple of Challenger Trophies this year, while being the runner-up in two others. While his success hasn't been this grand on the ATP circuit, he is certainly coming in as the favorite one owing to his form. 20 year old Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka is the second seeded player. He has been in good form, especially following his semi-final run in the ATP Atlanta last week. Similarly, 18 year old Stefan Kozlov will also be participating here, who is looking to build his momentum and form. Bjorn Fratangelo of the States is the third seeded player, who has alternated between the ATP and Challenger circuit. Similar to Evans, he hasn't been successful on the former, although he definitely appears to be working quite hard on the tour.
