    Tomic, Andreev kick off Gstaad Bernard Tomic and Igor Andreev kick off proceedings in Gstaad as the clay season finally starts to wind to a close.

    Bernard Tomic (8) vs. Benoit Paire

    Bernard Tomic, who is ranked 45th, will take on world No. 47 Benoit Paire of France. The Aussie requested a wild card into Gstaad after losing his first match in Stuttgart. Paire could be a tricky opponent for Tomic. He is a good clay-courter with a final in Belgrade to show for his efforts. He was ousted in the second round of the French Open, but he ran into iron man David Ferrer.

    Paire is actually having a much better season than Tomic. The Aussie had a solid start to the year at home, but the rest of 2012 has been largely a bust. His best result during the spring clay swing was a quarterfinal showing in Munich.

    Prediction – Paire for the straight-set win.

    Igor Andreev vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu

    Russia's Igor Andreev has seen his ranking drop to No. 88 in the world, low enough that the Russian is forced to qualify to get into some ATP level tournaments. Andreev was able to qualify for Stuttgart, but he lost there in the first round to Tommy Haas.

    Paul-Henri Mathieu should provide less difficulty to Andreev. The Frenchman is ranked No. 172 in the world. He did well enough at Roland Garros, making the third round, but the rest of his season ended with good results only on the Challenger circuit.

    Prediction – Andreev in straight sets.
