The 2011 champion is a second seed and has a first-round BYE. He will open his campaign against either in-form Croat Marin Cilic (world no.27, 8-0 H2H) or Joao Sousa of Portugal (1-0).
Novak’s potential opponents in the later stages of the tournament are:
3rd round: Fabio Fognini (ITA, 13), Aleksandr Dolgopolov (UKR)
Quarter-finals: David Ferrer (ESP, 5)
