    Troicki opens Basel bid against Baghdatis Tournament seed Viktor Troicki is set to begin his run in Basel early Monday, as he squares off against Marcos Baghdatis. Jurgen Melzer will be in first-round action as well, ready to take on wildcard Donald Young.

    (8) Viktor Troicki vs. Marcos Baghdatis

    World No. 17 Viktor Troicki trails first-round opponent Marcos Baghdatis 1-2 in the series. The players last met earlier this season in Kuala Lumpur, where the Cypriot posted a victory in straight sets.

    Troicki returns to competition following a runner-up finish to countryman Janko Tipsarevic in Moscow. The 2010 Basel semifinalist is bidding for his 40th match win of the year.

    Baghdatis is a modest 26-26 for the 2011 season, after making the round of 16 in Vienna. The former world No. 8 has performed well in Basel, having reached the semifinals or better in two of three attempts.

    Jurgen Melzer vs. (WC) Donald Young

    World No. 26 Jurgen Melzer holds a narrow 2-1 series edge against wildcard Donald Young. Monday signals their second meeting of the season.

    Melzer makes his return to action following a quarterfinal finish in Vienna (lost to Anderson). The 30-year-old veteran looks to win his first match in Basel.

    The 43rd-ranked Young will attempt to record his 20th victory of the season. The 22-year-old American is set to make his Basel debut late Monday.
