2022 US Open runner-up and World No. 2 Casper Ruud will be the top seed. The star-packed field will also feature World No. 8 Cameron Norrie, Taylor Fritz, and Denis Shapovalov completing the top 4 seeds. They have received a bye into the Second Round (Round of 16).
After a disappointing Davis Cup, Cameron Norrie will be keen to gain some momentum. World No. 12 Taylor Fritz won the Indian Wells this year. After a first-round exit in the US Open, the American will look to turn the tide.

However, this year’s Cincinnati Masters champion Borna Coric withdrew due to an ankle sprain. Daniel Evans, Miomir Kecmanovic, and Jenson Brooksby are among the top 8 seeds.
Casper Ruud (1) and Taylor Fritz (3) anchor the top half of the draw and could meet each other in the last 4.
Daniel Evans (5) will begin his campaign against Japan’s Nishioka. The Brit could meet Casper Ruud in the last 8.
Alexander Kovacevic got off to a good start. The American beat Kecmanovic (7) in the First Round by 6-4, 6-4 sets. He could meet Taylor Fritz in the last 8.
Cameron Norrie (2) and Denis Shapovalov (4) anchor the bottom half of the draw.
