Novak Djokovic — defending 0 points

The No. 1 player in the PIF ATP Rankings accepted a wild card to compete in Geneva for the first time and will be keen to claim his first title of the season and his 99th tour-level trophy overall. Djokovic has no points to defend next week.

It has been a difficult start to the year for the 36-year-old, who is 12-5 in 2024. After a third-round exit in Rome to eventual semi-finalist Alejandro Tabilo, Djokovic will be fully focused on stringing together matches to regain his top form. He will play former World No. 1 Andy Murray or German Yannick Hanfmann in the second round.

Mariano Navone — defending 0 points
One of the quickest risers on the circuit this season has been Lyon seventh seed Mariano Navone. The Argentine began 2024 without a tour-level win to his name, which plays into the hands of PIF ATP Rankings Predictor players.

Navone, who is not defending any points in Lyon, has made ATP Tour finals on clay in Rio de Janeiro and Bucharest. He has proven a tough out on the surface and should continue to be so at the Open Parc, where he opens against Pavel Kotov and could play second seed Alexander Bublik in the quarter-finals.

Ben Shelton — defending 0 points
Shelton, the big-serving American lefty, began his clay-court season in Houston, where he lifted the ATP 250 title. The 21-year-old then lost in the third round at ATP Masters 1000 events in Madrid and Rome.

At a career-high World No. 14, Shelton has proven he has the firepower to blast through the clay. He has also shown improvement on the surface from last year, his first swing on the red dirt. Shelton is not defending any points in Geneva, where he is the fourth seed and will begin his tournament against Flavio Cobolli or Aslan Karatsev.

Bonus Ball — Novak Djokovic
It has not been the start to a season Djokovic is accustomed to. With that in mind, it still makes sense to place your Bonus Ball on the Serbian. Any time a World No. 1 is competing and not defending any points, odds are he can help your team that weak.

The 36-year-old has earned 19 tour-level titles on clay in his career and could add a 20th this week in Geneva.
