    Marseille - Gasquet, Davydenko in first-round action Fifth seed Richard Gasquet will begin his Open 13 run on Tuesday, as he takes to the court against Japan’s Go Soeda. The Frenchman is joined in first-round play by former world No. 3 Nikolay Davydenko, who meets Andreas Beck.

    (5) Richard Gasquet vs. Go Soeda

    World No. 15 Richard Gasquet makes his return to competition after reaching the Rotterdam quarterfinal last week. The 25-year-old won consecutive matches before falling to Nikolay Davydenko, 5-7, 3-6. Gasquet has compiled 7-5 season record entering into his fifth Open 13.

    World No. 82 Go Soeda is set to take part in his first tour-level event since January. The 27-year-old will be making his maiden main-draw appearance in Marseille.

    Nikolay Davydenko vs. Andreas Beck

    World No. 40 Nikolay Davydenko leads Andreas Beck 1-0 in the series, having won their only previous meeting in 2004.

    Davydenko drew level at 4-4 for the season following a semifinal finish at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. The Russian has not performed well in Marseille, having suffered five opening-round losses since his 2002 debut.

    Beck returns to action for the first time since Zagreb. The German will make his Open 13 debut late Tuesday.
