    Ferrer, Gonzalez take the Buenos Aires stage under the lights Top seed David Ferrer and veteran Chilean Fernando Gonzalez will headline Wednesday play at the Copa Claro.

    David Ferrer (1) vs. Facundo Bagnis

    David Ferrer barely broke a sweat in his first-round match against Andres Molteni. The world No. 5 lost just one game in an utterly dominant performance. Molteni entered the tournament as a qualifier.

    Ferrer’s second-round opponent is also Argentine, this time a wildcard entrant. Facundo Bagnis is ranked 162nd in the world; he failed to qualify for Vina del Mar and Sao Paulo. The lefty has had moderate success on the Challenger circuit, but his win over Leonardo Mayer this week is his first tour win of the year.

    Prediction – Australian Open quarterfinalist Ferrer should have no difficulty advancing.

    Fernando Gonzalez (WC) vs. Albert Ramos

    The retirement of Fernando Gonzalez is imminent, but the popular Chilean is still competing at the moment. The wild card, whose ranking has dropped to No. 263, won his second match of the year against Albert Montanes in the first round, but the win was the result of a retirement from the Spaniard.

    Gonzalez will take on another Spaniard in the second round. World No. 59 Albert Ramos is playing great clay-court tennis right now. He charged through the Sao Paolo draw, advancing all the way to the semifinals before going out to Nicolas Almagro.

    Prediction – Gonzalez will be the sentimental favorite with the Argentine crowd, but expect Ramos to advance.
