    Ferrer makes his return to action following a quarterfinal loss to World No. 4 Andy Murray at Wimbledon. The 30-year-old is bidding for his 48th match win of the season.

    Bolelli defeated Chile’s Paul Capdeville in the first round, 7-6(5), 7-6(3). The 26-year-old is seeking his 5th Tour-level victory of the year.

    World No. 39 Jarkko Nieminen is 1-0 lifetime over World No. 102 Jan Hajek, having won their only previous meeting in 2005.

    Nieminen is back on court after suffering a second-round defeat to Brian Baker at Wimbledon. The 30-year-old will be making his 8th appearance at the tournament, where he reached the final four in 2006.

    Hajek dismissed Argentina’s Federico Del Bonis in the opening round, 7-6(3), 6-3. The 28-year-old will attempt to win his second Tour-level match in 2012.
