Jannik Sinner is the man to beat here. The two-time defending champion enters the competition as the eleventh-ranked player and the top seed. He is also the second-youngest player in the top-eleven Men’s Tennis ATP Rankings 2022, which means he possesses great energy and athleticism.

Borges will go through a qualifier in the first round, while Sixth seed Nikoloz Basilashvili is the next top seed and takes on Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in the opening round.
