Grigor Dimitrov will try to build upon his fantastic season denouement with a strong showing at the year's opening Grand Slam event.
The Bulgarian capped a memorable 2017 in fitting fashion by claiming victory at the season-ending ATP Finals at The O2 in a tense three-set battle against David Goffin.
Dimitrov began the 2017 season by ending a three-year title drought with victory in Brisbane and followed up that success Down Under with a run to the semi-finals of the Australian Open.
The 26-year-old fell to losing finalist Rafael Nadal in the last four, but he did go on to win a second ATP title of the year when downing Goffin in Sofia, Bulgaria.
However, the clay season was one to forget for Dimitrov - as he suffered early exits in Monte Carlo and Rome - while he was dumped out of the French Open by Pablo Carreno Busta in the round of 32.
On grass Dimitrov had a good run at Queen's, where he reached the semi-finals, losing to eventual champion Feliciano Lopez, and then made the fourth round of Wimbledon without dropping a set, before succumbing to eventual champion Roger Federer.
Dimitrov, with four titles to his name in 2017, finished 2017 as the world No 3 and is a credible candidate for a maiden Grand Slam success in 2018 as injury concerns hang over former world No 1s Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.
