    Tipsarevic, Youzhny headline play in St. Petersburg Second seed Janko Tipsarevic will begin his run in St. Petersburg, as he takes to the court against Olivier Rochus on Wednesday. The Serbian is joined in action by former champion Mihkail Youzhny, who faces Julien Benneteau.

    (2) Janko Tipsarevic vs. Olivier Rochus

    World No. 13 Janko Tipsarevic trails veteran Olivier Rochus 3-4 in the series. The players are meeting for the first time since the 2010 US Open, where the Serbian scored a victory in four sets. Wednesday marks their 6th contest on hard-court.

    Tipsarevic enters into St. Petersburg with momentum, having defeated compatriot Viktor Troicki for the Kremlin Cup title. The two-time St. Petersburg quarterfinalist is bidding for his 49th win of the season.

    Rochus looks to rebound after suffering a first-round loss to James Blake in Stockholm. The 30-year-old veteran is a modest 13-15 for the season.

    (5) Mikhail Youzhny vs. Julien Benneteau

    Fifth seed Mikhail Youzhny holds a 3-1 series advantage over Julien Bennteau. The two are meeting for the first time in more than two years.

    The 29-year-old Russian recorded his 25th match win on Monday, when he defeated Sergiy Stakhovsky in straight sets. He is a former champion in St. Petersburg, having won the title in 2004.

    The 55th-ranked Bennteau defeated Pere Riba in the opening round, 6-2, 6-1. The veteran Frenchman looks to win consecutive matches for the first time since the US Open.
