Ranked no.25, the young Canadian is aiming at breaking in the top 20 as soon as he can. Denis is not having a “smashing” 2019 with a 6-5 win-loss record.

Ranked no.11, Cilic is also having a below-par 2019 with a 4-2 win-loss record thanks to his run in Melbourne where he reached the 4th round. Marin reached the 3rd round in Indian Wells after beating Dusan Lajovic 6-3 6-4.
