The Japan Open looks set to be a hotly contested tournament between a cluster of American stars as they duel for supremacy in Tokyo.


Reigning champion Taylor Fritz returns to Japan seeking to defend his title at the top seed and maintain his place in the ATP Rankings with a strong result.

The World No.8 may face stern competition from compatriots including Tommy Paul and Frances Tiafoe, though.

Casper Ruud and Alexander Zverev are also among the top seeds going into the Japan Open aiming to boost their points tallies as the end-of-season tournaments come into view.

The race to qualify for the ATP Finals is on, with four places up for grabs after Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz, Daniil Medvedev and Jannik Sinner each booked their place in Turin.
