The event in Memphis falls behind other ATP tournaments that take place at the same portion of the season. The number of ranking points at stake is smaller and the contenders are less spectacular. The venue of the event can host only 5 thousand spectators to watch it. By the way, it’s the only ATP indoor event held in the USA.
Weather and Courts
The weather is very comfortable in Memphis with about +25 °C. It would be very convenient to play after the Australian swing. However, a week of the European indoor tennis will make the situation more complicated in terms of adaptation and time lag. For these reasons the event is enjoyed by the American contenders mainly. Historically, the Memphis Open was organized to be as the US Open alternative played indoors. That’s why the courts are very similar to those in New York.
Kei Nishikori walked away with three last titles (2013-2016) but this year the Japanese chose to play clay and the event will feature a new champion. There’s a great possibility that the Americans will return to dominate as they used in previous year before the Japanese broke into.
2017 Memphis Open Draw
The draw features many American players: John Isner, Sam Querrey, Steve Johnson, Ryan Harrison, Taylor Fritz. All of them will compete for the title. Memphis is very similar to Montpellier event with the prevailing number of local contenders participating.
Besides these five natives, there are also Bernard Tomic and Ivo Karlovic who can also make a difference. We can’t but mention Kevin Anderson who is back on tour after the long absence. In 2015 the South African made it to the final.
