There are two ATP 500 tournaments this week followed by 5 ATP 250 tournaments over two weeks and then the last 3 APT tournaments will follow.    I was surprised to see that the Tokyo tournament attracted very poor  nominations as that type of Tournament normally entails stronger participation than the APT 250 tournaments,

Final players have been determined and the matches will start early on Monday.  In general a poor set of players,

Since the above Cameron Norrie has withdrawn from the Torunament andin the seeding players replaced by Borna Coric - who isnow seeded as No 9.

Ruud got lucky this year and ended up as number 2 ranked player in the world by injuries and lucky draws he got into two major finales and ended up being disgraced in each of the two.   Today h e was easily beaten by a Spanish clay court player in Round 1 of the Tokyo Open.   He is just Supershit as a player and my forecast is that by this time next year he will be out of the Top 10 ranked players.   He has very few attacking weaponry and his services are relatively harmless.

The Tokyo Open is now without their number 1, 2 and 6 seeds  and the end result is going to be wide open.

4   Frances Tiafoe                vs          Miomir Kecmanovic

4   Frances Tiafoe                            vs     Soonwoo Kwon 

3    Taylo Fritz                                 vs    7    Denis Shapovalov

Looking at the above - Kyrgios must stop playing tennis if he cannot win this tournament.     In the case of Tiafoe he faces unseeded players in both the quarterfinal and the same in the semifinal + while Kyrgios will face Fritz in the Quarterfinal - who is more interested in his hair  than in playing tennis - and Shapovalov who has no won a tournamnet for ages and is totally unpredictable,   So the likely final could potentially be between Tiafoe and Kyrgios.      

By the way Kyrgios withdrew and that gave Fritz a pass to the next round.
