    Gstaad - Lopez and Wawrinka in second round action Feliciano Lopez and Stanislas Wawrinka will take the court in Gstaad as round two kicks off.

    Feliciano Lopez vs. Jan Hajek

    The Czech Republic's Jan Hajek has been playing on the Challenger circuit with much success this season. He earned his way into the main draw in Bastad last week and earned himself 90 ranking points with a semifinal showing.

    He will take on Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in Wednesday's match. Lopez is ranked 30 in the world, but he's had a dismal spring and he comes into Gstaad off a first round defeat at the Bogota Challenger. Lopez isn't a classic clay-courter either, with the big server preferring hard courts.

    Prediction – Hajek should have a good shot at getting the win here.

    Stanislas Wawrinka (3) vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu

    This will be the first ever meeting between Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka and Paul-Henri Mathieu of France. Wawrinka will be looking for a good result this week at home and he's rather fortunate to be playing Paul-Henri Mathieu, whose ranking has dropped to No. 172 in the world.

    Wawrinka is ranked 25th in the world. He had a terrible result at Wimbledon, where he lost in the first round, but he is better on clay than he is on grass, as evidenced by his round of 16 showing at the French Open.

    Mathieu hasn't had many good results this season, save a third round at the French Open. The 30-year old had a losing 6-9 record coming into Gstaad.

    Prediction – Wawrinka should get through this one in straight sets.
