The 2024 Brisbane International will act as the official curtain raiser of the men's tennis season, running from December 31, 2023, till January 7, 2024.

The Brisbane International will be played on outdoor hard courts and feature a 32-player singles draw. Twenty-one players have qualified based on actual ranking, while three players (one of whom is confirmed) will enter as wild cards. Six players will join from the qualifying rounds.

After a four-year absence, tennis action returns to Queensland state, which will boast a star-studded lineup in its 12th edition, with the acquisition of several of the world's best tennis players. Based on prestige, charisma, and accomplishment, no active players can match Rafael Nadal.

The Spaniard will emotionally return after a long-term injury at the Brisbane International, and he'll undoubtedly be the headline act. Despite his expected rankings drop, Nadal has been offered a wild card to play the event as he targets getting in shape before the Australian Open.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion must contend for the title with many highly talented young players. One of them is the top seed Holger Rune, who is now being coached full-time by Boris Becker after a promising short-term alliance last autumn.

Former champion Grigor Dimitrov will add to the star power in the field. Dimitrov re-entered the Top 15 at the end of last season after reaching his second-ever Masters 1000 final in Paris-Bercy. France's Ugo Humbert is one of four players ranked in the top 20 who appear on the entry list.

Ben Shelton returns to Australia 12 months after his explosive start to life on the ATP Tour. He will be the third seed. Two former Next Gen players, Sebastian Korda and Sebastian Baez, are also among the seeded players. Former British No. 1 Andy Murray will pursue a third title in Brisbane.

Aslan Karatsev, once the story of the Australian Open, is the eighth seed. This tournament will be Reilly Opelka's first taste of Tour-level action since August 2022. The towering American enters with a Protected Ranking. The full entry list for the 2024 Brisbane International is indicated below.
