    Murray and Tsonga start 2012 Dubai campaigns on Tuesday Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will take the court in an action-packed day at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

    Andy Murray (3) vs. Michael Berrer

    Andy Murray will face a fairly familiar opponent in his first match in Dubai. Germany’s Michael Berrer lost to Murray twice in 2011 in routine straight sets.

    This will be Murray’s first match since he lost a five-set heartbreaker to Novak Djokovic in the semifinals in the Australian Open. The Scot comes into the tournament after training with coach Ivan Lendl in his off time.

    Prediction – Murray hasn’t had particularly good results in Dubai, but Berrer doesn’t have much in his game that would threaten the Scot. Murray in straight sets.

    Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (4) vs. Marcos Baghdatis

    France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has been in good, if not fantastic form since the Australian Open. The Frenchman won both of his Davis Cup matches against Canada and he made the semifinals in Marseille last week, where he lost a tough three-setter to Juan Martin Del Potro.

    Tsonga drew a tricky first-round opponent in Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis. In Rotterdam, Baghdatis’s most recent tournament, he was forced to withdraw in the second round with a leg injury.

    Given his current form, Tsonga should win this match. How easily will depend on whether Baghdatis is fully fit from his injury a couple of weeks ago.
