The top seed has been bagged by the local favorite Adam Pavlasek, who is coming in the event after emerging as the runner-up in Challenger event in Scheveningen. Interestingly, some of his best feats this season came on clay (including his win in Prague), which makes him a strong contender here. On his opposite end is the veteran Belgian Steve Darcis, who hasn't been that active this year. However, he has won nine matches on the circuit consecutively on clay surface, which puts him right among the favorites. Santiago Giraldo of Colombia will also be playing in the event, who last won Challenger Prague. After a tally of 7-13 on the ATP tour, his shift to the challenger seems to be working out for him so far. However, with the likes of Nicolas Kicker and Kimmer Coppejans looking to reach the top, it is a matter of resilience for these experienced players to withstand the young force.

The Svijany Open is outdoor clay court tournament that s held annually in Liberec, Czech Republic. The tourney is currently part of the Challenger Tour and has a total prize money of around €35,000 which will probably grow considerably larger this year. The Liberec based tournament is an extremely young event, with this year’s edition being the third one. In 2013, a home player managed to emerge victorious by defeating Federico Delbonis in the final.

That player was Jiri Vesely who went on to win his maiden ATP title since. He clearly moved on to bigger and better things, which is something that a couple of solid ATP players surely don’t mind, definitely not this week. With the absence of the big-hitting youngster, players like Steve Darcis or Alexander Nedovyesov will have a chance to go far and possibly even win the tournament.

The other seeded players who could do some damage are third seed Radu Albot, fourth seed Kimmer Coppejans, fifth seed Inigo Cervantes, sixth seed Horacio Zeballos, seventh seed Adam Pavlasek or eighth seed Hans Podlipnik-Castillo. Big-hitting Hungarian Martin Fucsovics (a former junior Wimbledon champion) also has a puncher’s chance if he can get through Darcis in the second round.

The Svijany Open will take place on outdoor clay courts in the city of Liberec. The first edition of the tournament saw most of the top 8 seeds being those in the top 150 of the ATP World Ranking. The difference last year was that it was a hard court tournament rather than a clay court tournament, as it is this year. The winner last year was Czech Republic’s own Jiri Vesely, who beat Federico Delbonis of Argentina to lift the trophy. The Association of Tennis Professionals has taken up a very noble initiative of trying to globalize Tennis as a sport, so that more and more talent may be harnessed so the overall quality of the sport is raised to a highest level.
