    Simon enters into his title defense with a 30-16 season record. He makes his return to competition following a second-round loss to Belgium’s Xavier Malisse at Wimbledon.

    Berlocq is back on court after reaching the final eight in Umag. The 29-year-old is bidding for his 21st match win of the season.

    Nieminen will attempt to regroup following an opening-round loss to the Czech Republic's Jan Hajek at the SkiStar Swedish Open. The veteran is seeking his 18th victory of the year.

    Davydenko looks to rebound after falling to German wildcard Dustin Brown in Stuttgart. The 31-year-old Russian is a former winner in Hamburg, having taken home top prize in 2009.
