This weeks ATP preview

2013 Credit Argicole Suisse Open
surface – clay
  1. Roger Federer
  2. Stanislas Wawrinka
  3. Janko Tipsarević
  4. Juan Mónaco
  1. Feliciano López
  2. Mikhail Youzhny
  3. Lukáš Rosol
  4. Roberto Bautista-Agut
At Switzerland’s Credit Argicole Suisse Open, Swiss superstar Rodger Federer continues his quest to quash all them negative media reports speculating that he's nearing the end of his career. Federer regained some good form last week on the way to the German Open semi finals as he gets to grip with his new racquet, however his shock loss to a player ranked out of the top 100 is still worrying his loyal fans. In his draw he faces potential opponents such as Daniel Brands and a very in form Roberto Bautista Agut. Following Federer seed wise is another home favourite Stanislas Wawrwinka, Janko Tipsarevic and Juan Monaco. Defending champion Thomaz Bellucci and last week shock German open finalist Federico Delbonis is also completing, both unseeded. I would expect there to be a Swiss player in the final but I'm not sure who's more likely Federer or Warwinka, especially when Wawrinka has won more matches this year than Federer so far but has also lost more matches.

2013 BB&T Atlanta open
Surface – hard
  1. John Isner
  2. Kevin Anderson
  3. Ivan Dodig
  4. Igor Sijsling
  1. Lu Yen-hsun

  4. Evgeny Donskoy
Continuing the US open series, this week it's the BB&T Atlanta Open. Work number 21 John Isner heads the field followed by Kevin Anderson, Ivan Dodig and Igor Slijsling. This tournament could see a rematch of last weeks Claro Open semi finals in the second round between Ivo Karlovic and Kevin Anderson.Second seed Anderson will be looking to revenge his three sets defeat last week. Mardy Fish will also be a threat that the field needs to look out for as he won the 2010 and 2011 title.

Finally over in Croatia at the Vegeta Open Richard Gasquet heads the field followed by Italians Andreas Seppi and Fabio Fognini. Fognini will be the one to beat in this tournament following his two consecutive ATP titles in Germany. Some potential matches to look out for could Seppis potential second round match against former junior number 1 Jiri Vesley (who has reach the finals of four challengers this year,winning two of them), Fognini against Tursunov in the second round and a possible second round rematch from Sweden a couple weeks ago between Argentina’s Berlocq and Zeballos.
