    World No. 19 Fernando Verdasco holds a 2-0 series edge against world No. 66 Olivier Rochus. Monday signals their first meeting since 2008.

    Verdasco returns to competition following a third-round loss to compatriot Nicolas Almagro at the Masters 1000 Miami. The 28-year-old will be making his 8th appearance in Monte-Carlo, where he finished runner-up to seven-time champion Rafael Nadal in 2010.
