    Kohlschreiber begins Halle campaign against Brown An all-German affair will help kick off the first day of main-draw action in Munich. Philipp Kohlschreiber and Dustin Brown are looking for spots in the second round.

    Philipp Kohlschreiber and Dustin Brown will be going head-to-head for the first time in their careers when the two Germans do battle in round one of the Gerry Weber Open on Monday afternoon.

    Kohlschreiber is the defending champion of this event and he boasts a 19-6 lifetime record in Halle. The world No. 26 (as of Sunday evening) is a huge longshot to make it back-to-back with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in the draw, but he is at least playing stellar tennis in 2012. Kohlschreiber, who won the Munich title last month, is 22-12 for the season after losing to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the French Open.

    Brown, who previously played under the Jamaican flag, spends most of his time at the Challenger level. The world No. 163 is a mere 1-1 on the ATP Tour this year, having qualified for the main draw in Munich before advancing one round. He is coming off an opening-round loss in qualifying at Roland Garros.

    Grass should be more favorable for Brown, who has a big serves and uses aggressive tactics to shorten points. Of course, Kohlschreiber is quite adept on the slow stuff as well. Count on the No. 8 seed taking care of business in straight sets.
