    Play set to resume in rain-soaked Nice After a Monday washout at the Open de Nice Côte d’Azur, tournament seeds Robin Haase and Denis Istomin will begin their campaigns on Tuesday. The players are in action against respective opponents Juan Carlos Ferrero and Alejandro Falla.

    (6) Robin Haase vs. (WC) Juan Carlos Ferrero

    Sixth seed Robin Haase trails former world No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero 1-0 in the series, having lost their only previous meeting in 2006. Tuesday marks their first clay-court clash.

    Haase looks to rebound after falling to Switzerland’s Stanislas Wawrinka at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Rome. The 25-year-old Dutchman will be making his second appearance at the Open de Nice Côte d’Azur.

    Ferrero is back on court following a round of 16 defeat to world No. 3 Roger Federer in Rome. The 32-year-old veteran is bidding for his fourth tour-level win this season.

    (7) Denis Istomin vs. Alejandro Falla

    Seventh seed Denis Istomin will be looking to level a 1-0 series deficit against Alejandro Falla on Tuesday. The players are set to meet for the first time on clay.

    Istomin will attempt to rebound after suffering first-round losses in six of his last seven events. The 25-year-old is 15-15 for the season entering into his second Open de Nice Côte d’Azur.

    Falla returns to the tour following an unsuccessful attempt to qualify for the Masters 1000 Rome. The 28-year-old has compiled a modest 6-11 season mark prior to his Nice debut.
