Top Half
1 Isner vs Bye
WC Ginepri vs Stakhovsky
Smyczek vs WC Harrison
Estrella Burgos vs 8 Matosevic
Q Venus vs Bye
Sock vs Gonzalez
Lacko vs WC Pasha
LL Ram vs 6 Istomin

Bottom Half
9 Querrey vs Johnson
Young vs Sela
Q Smith vs Q Marchenko
Bye vs 4 Pospisil
7 Lu vs LL Al. Kuznetsov
Ebden vs Becker
Q Diez vs LL De Bakker
Bye vs 2 Anderson

Note there is a 9th seed due to 5th seed Radek Stepanek withdrawing after the draw had been already made. 3rd seed Gael Monfils withdrew in the last day or so, hence qualifier Michael Venus getting a bye and Monfils' spot in the draw.

Quite a fair few players defending a lot of points here. This tournament is probably the most important to Harrison who is ranked as low as 143 and has to defend semi final points here! Having said that he has a bad draw.

Don't think John is playing particularly well while Anderson doesn't pick up many titles.

I'd go for maybe Monfils, but wouldn't surprise me if Querrey won it. Playing slightly better now and played well in defeat to Tsonga at Wimbo.

How is it determined that Venus got Monfils' spot? It's pretty clear a Q was getting that spot since Gael withdrew so late, but how'd they choose him? Also, the draw is reflected to include the changes.

7 places (4Q+3LL) were drawing together, Venus was lucky to go to 2nd round

I think Jack Sock will make a run.

Another example of a 250 where the field is quite weak, to put it mildly. I don't know if it's just me or were tournaments like this able to attract better players some years ago.
