NICK KYRGIOS – 28/1
When the enigmatic Australian is in the mood, he has all the means to beat anyone. Nothing is ever guaranteed with him, but opponents will fear that he will get out of bed on the right side.
JACKET DRAPER – 200/1
The 20-year-old from Surrey has a thunderous left-handed serve and the rest of his game is quickly maturing. A real British prospect, albeit with pressure.
