WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- In just a few weeks, the 2016 Winston-Salem Open will be held at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex for the sixth year in a row. Each year, the ATP World Tour 250 event welcomes some of the top players in the world and 2016 is no different.

In past years, the tournament has drawn the likes of John Isner, Tomas Berdych, Kei Nishikori, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt and many more. This year, the tournament will welcome a player field that, at the time of its announcement in July, featured no player ranked lower than No. 72 in the world. This year's participants include the likes of reigning WSO champion Kevin Anderson, Richard Gasquet, Gilles Simon, Borna Coric, Sam Querrey, Steve Johnson and many more. In all, the tournament will consist of 48 of the world's best in the singles field and a 16-tandem doubles field, as well as a 16-player singles qualifying field. With 38 players announced for the main singles draw, the final 10 players will be announced over the course of the coming weeks and days leading up to the start of the tournament.

In recent years, Wake Forest has had a growing presence at the tournament. Last year, Skander Mansouri, Christian Seraphim, Jon Ho and Sam Bloom each earned spots in the qualifying draw. Mansouri was the only Deac to pick up a win in the draw, beating Damon Gooch in three sets in the first round. He fell to Marco Cecchinato in the second round, who ultimately went on to earn a spot in the main draw. Additionally, Seraphim and Mansouri earned a wild card into the main doubles draw. Playing on Court No. 2, the duo battled hard but ultimately lost in straight sets to Christian and Ryan Harrison.

Two years ago in 2014, Demon Deacon standout Noah Rubin earned a wild card into the main draw and while he fell to Bradley Klahn in the first round, he put up a tough fight in the first-round matchup. In the same tournament, Ho participated in qualifying and topped Quinton Vega in the first round before falling to Jason Jung in the second round.

In 2013, three-year Wake Forest standout Romain Bogaerts earned a wild card into the tournament's main draw but dropped his first-round matchup to Yen-Hsun Lu, who made a run to the quarterfinals of the tournament before falling to semifinalist Alexandr Dolgopolov.
