    Barcelona - Tipsarevic, Nishikori highlight Wednesday play Tournament seeds Janko Tipsarevic and Kei Nishikori are set to contest their second-round matches at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell on Wednesday. The players are in action against respective opponents Victor Hanescu and Mikhail Kukushkin.

    (5) Janko Tipsarevic vs. Victor Hanescu

    World No. 8 Janko Tipsarevic trails world No. 102 Victor Hanescu 2-1 in the head-to-head series. Wednesday marks their first meeting since 2009.

    Tipsarevic is back on court following a round of 16 loss to France’s Gilles Simon in Monte-Carlo. The 27-year-old will be making his first appearance in Barcelona since 2009.

    Hanescu defeated Portugal’s Rui Machado in the first round, 6-3, 7-6(5). The veteran is bidding for his 6th Tour-level victory of the season.

    (8) Kei Nishikori vs. Mikhail Kukushkin

    World No. 17 Kei Nishikori holds a 2-0 series edge against world No. 55 Mikhail Kukushkin. Wednesday signals their first clash on clay.

    Nishikori is 13-8 for the season after reaching the round of 16 in Monte-Carlo (lost to Berdych). The 22-year-old made the round of 16 in Barcelona last year, where he fell to Spain’s Feliciano Lopez in straight sets.

    Kukushkin dismissed Daniel Gimeno-Traver in the opening round, 6-2, 6-3. The 24-year-old looks to record his 7th main-draw win this year.
