Find out who will be the  Barcelona Open Top Seeds for the Barcelona Open title and keep up to date with their progress.

Barcelona Open Seeds Top 8

Unfortunately, we will not have all the top ten players of the ATP ranking, as some could not participate due to injury and others decided to take a break to be at 100% for the next Roland Garros. However, those who will be present have given us a good show so far this season. Let’s see who the main Barcelona Open Seeds are.

1. Carlos Alcaraz 

It is impressive how at 19 years of age he is able to easily defeat other top players with more experience. However, in recent tournaments, it has been evident that he still has a lot to learn in order to consolidate himself as others such as his compatriot Rafael Nadal once did. On this occasion Carlos will be playing at home on a court that is very good for him, in fact besides being the favourite he is also the defending champion. So he is obliged to make a back-to-back not to keep losing points to Djokovic.

2. Stefanos Tsitsipas

The Greek tennis player has been one of the most consistent this season, but he has fallen just short of lifting a few titles. Undoubtedly, his most important result was the final of the Australia Open where he lost to Novak Djokovic. In the previous Monte Carlo tournament he reached the quarter-finals, the same round in which he lost the previous year in Barcelona, so the first objective will be to improve that stage.

3. Casper Ruud

The Norwegian tennis player remains unconvincing with his inconsistent style of play. Since he lost the chance to become number one and win the US Open the previous year, he has participated in tournaments where he starts very well but where he falls in the final phase. Beyond the defeats, it is worrying that his performance drops sharply in some matches that in theory should be easy for a player like him. In Monte Carlo he lost in the 16th round, in Barcelona Open we expect to see him in a more advanced round.

4. Jannik Sinner

Unread is another of those young players who are giving a lot to talk about this season. The Italian tennis player has been close to his second title of the season in recent months. In Monte Carlo, we enjoyed his great performance defeating tough opponents, although he lost to Holger Rune in the semi-finals. Jannik showed that he is very good on clay, so we could see him in the final stages of the Barcelona Open.

5. Cameron Norrie

Norrie is the main hope of the British fans, having already won one title this year, and has come close to winning another this season. So far he has a good record of 21 wins and just six defeats. In the previous edition of the Barcelona Open, Norrie had a quick exit when he lost in the quarter-finals to Australian Alex de Minaur.

6. Frances Tiafoe

The American tennis player is one of those players who has always been among the elite of tennis but has lacked that last step to inscribe his name among the winners of the most important tournaments. Even players like Djokovic and Nadal are very cautious when they meet Tiafoe. The 25-year-old has just won in Houston, so it goes to show that his victory in Narci was no longer a matter of luck.
