[1] Roger Federer

After what has now become his usual clay court break, Federer got his grass court campaign underway with a solid win in Stuttgart and heads to Halle for his habitual warm-up.

Federer’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seedings)

  • R1: Aljaz Bedene
  • R2: Steve Johnson
  • QF: Philipp Kohlschreiber [6]
  • SF: Dominic Thiem [3]
  • F: Alexander Zverev [2]


[2] Alexander Zverev

Having finally managed to crack the last eight of a Grand Slam, when injury looked to take its toll, Zverev returns to mount another challenge to Federer, this time as the No. 2 seed. A little older and hopefully a little wiser, it will be good to see if he can translate his clay court form to the grass in a quick turnaround.

Zverev’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seedings)

  • R1: Borna Coric
  • R2: Peter Gojowczyk
  • QF: Richard Gasquet [8]
  • SF: Roberto Bautista Agut [4]
  • F: Roger Federer [1]





[3] Dominic Thiem

Where Zverev made some inroads to addressing his Slam record, Thiem just went the extra step having been to the semi-finals of Slams before. He has done well at Halle before (semi-final in 2016), and reached the finals in Stuttgart the same year, so he can play on the green stuff.

Thiem’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seedings)

  • R1: Mikhail Youzhny [Q]
  • R2: Yuichi Sugita
  • QF: Lucas Pouille [5]
  • SF: Roger Federer [1]
  • F: Alexander Zverev [2]


 [4] Roberto Bautista Agut

It was a tough Roland Garros for the Spaniard who lost his mother suddenly shortly before he had to take to the court for his first match, and he prevailed up to the third round. He can be fairly steady on the grass and will be looking to defend his quarter-final points from last year.

Bautista Agut’s Path to the Final (Ranking/Seeding)

  • R1: Jan Lennard Struff
  • R2: Robin Haase
  • QF: Kei Nishikori [7]
  • SF: Alexander Zverev [2]
  • F: Roger Federer [1]
The Gerry Weber Open takes place between 18-24 June (BST +1 hour).
