Professional tennis players can complain about a lot of things but not when it comes to their chances to make a name for themselves or simply to stockpile some ranking points for darker days. This week only, around the world are set to be played 3 Atp 250 events: Rio Open in Brazil (on clay), Open 13 Marseille in France (indoor hard) and Delray Beach Open in Florida, United States (outdoor hard).

By taking a look at its the main draw, the North American tournament catches the attention as some big names are set to appear on the tennis court.

Milos Raonic is in the spotlights

The 26-years-old Canadian is leading the upper half of the draw and will face Tim Smyczek (164 ATP) in the opening round.

In his route to the upper stages of the tournament, Raonic might face some tough opposition. In the first quarter of the draw, a projected quarterfinal might have Raonic dealing with Kyle Edmund, the new British tennis hope.

The difficulties might not be over, as for the semis, Raonic could face Sam Querrey, the defending champion, or perhaps Juan Martin del Potro. The Argentine star is back on the professional circuit following a long time spent off the tennis court in order to recover after a long and successful season in 2016.

For a potential final, Milos, a well-grounded player with a big serve, might bump into Ivo Karlovic, Jack Sock, Bernard Tomic or even Dustin Brown. The German is well-known for his fall for show and entertainment and we all know how grateful the local crowd can be when it comes to such things.

This particular type of engaged crowd is the reason why so many top ranked players choose to play in Florida

Raonic needs a bit of consistency

Widely regarded as one of the biggest hope of men's tennis, Raonic almost did it last year when he played Wimbledon's final following a huge win over Roger Federer.

But in the final against Murray, Milos was a shadow of his previous self. He had the same story at the Australian Open 2017. A solid game in the first 4 matches, but that was all. In the quarterfinals, he had no response for Nadal's pace and lost in straight sets.

Now it's time for him to bounce back and put in that powerful tennis he has in his racket head.
