    Gasquet opens bid, Tomic takes on Stepanek Richard Gasquet is back on court two days after finishing runner-up in Estoril, as he takes to the court against Brazil’s Thomaz Bellucci. Veteran Radek Stepanek is set for a first-round meeting with young talent Bernard Tomic.

    (14) Richard Gasquet vs. Thomaz Bellucci

    World No. 18 Richard Gasquet holds a 2-0 series lead over world No. 69 Thomaz Bellucci. Tuesday signals their second meeting on clay.

    Gasquet makes an immediate return to action following his runner-up finish to Juan Martin Del Potro at the Estoril Open. The 25-year-old Frenchman is bidding for his 15th victory of the season.

    Bellucci is 10-8 for the season after reaching the round of 16 at the Masters 1000 Monte-Carlo. The 24-year-old Brazilian made the 2011 Madrid final four before falling to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

    Radek Stepanek vs. Bernard Tomic

    World No. 26 Radek Stepanek is a modest 9-9 for the year. The 33-year-old veteran looks to regroup after suffering a first-round loss to Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen in Monte-Carlo. Stepanek will attempt to win his first match in Madrid since 2008.

    World No. 31 Bernard Tomic is 16-9 following a quarterfinal finish in Munich (lost to Lopez). The 19-year-old Australian will make his Madrid debut on Tuesday.
