    Dolgopolov, Verdasco highlight Monday play in Beijing Tournament seed Alexandr Dolgopolov will commence his run at the China Open, as he takes to the court against qualifier Flavio Cipolla. Fernando Verdasco is also in first-round action, set to take on veteran Michael Llodra.

    (8) Alexandr Dolgopolov vs. (Q) Flavio Cipolla

    Eighth seed Alexandr Dolgopolov holds a 2-0 lifetime advantage against qualifier Flavio Cipolla. The players last met at the 2011 USO Open, where the Ukranian recorded a five-set victory.

    Dolgopolov returns to the court following a semifinal finish in Metz. The 22-year-old advanced to the final four before falling to eventual champion, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Dolgopolov is bidding for his 35th win of the season Monday afternoon.

    Cipolla looks to regroup after a second-round loss to Janko Tipsarevic in Kuala Lumpur. The Italian qualifier will attempt to secure his fifth tour-level victory of the year.

    Fernando Verdasco vs. Michael Llodra

    Fernando Verdasco looks to break a 2-2 series tie with Michael Llodra on Monday. The two last clashed at the 2011 Masters 1000 Cincinnati, where the Spaniard recorded a straight-set victory.

    Verdasco is 32-20 for the season, entering into his fourth China Open. The 27-year-old turned in his best effort in 2009, when he made the final eight (lost to Djokovic).

    Llodra aims to rebound after a first-round loss to fellow veteran Arnaud Clement in Metz. The 32-year-old Frenchman, looking to win his first match in Beijing, is a modest 17-18 for the season.
