One of the stand out performers on grass was the big serving American, Johnson. The top seed here backed his Nottingham title run with a fourth round finish at Wimbledon- not bad for a player who was struggling to win matches at the start of the season.
The strong results of late have put Johnson as one of the favourites, and rightfully so. He is the highest ranked player here and his serve and forehand translate well onto the grass.
The Croatian giant might consider his grass court season a bit of a disappointment thus far. He was upset at Wimbledon by Lukas Lacko in the second round, and his best result was a semi final appearance at ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
With his serve though, Karlovic is always a huge threat on grass. Expect many aces from his side of the net, and it is that weapon that makes him many people’s favourite to take home the title.
‘Baggy’ might be no spring chicken anymore but he can still compete with the best of them on his day. His year has been positive in general, but his Wimbledon run was stopped at the first hurdle at the hands of John Isner. There’s plenty of big servers in this draw who can give Baghdatis trouble.
It is difficult to assess how far the world Australian Open finalist will go, because well, he’s Baghdatis. Consistency has never been his strong suite, but in form he can make a run for the title here.
The Hall of Fame Tennis Championships takes place between 11-17 July.
