    Troicki, Tomic take the court at Bangkok Open Viktor Troicki and Bernard Tomic will contest their Bangkok openers on Tuesday. They are set for respective meetings with Sergiy Stakhovsky and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.

    Sergiy Stakhovsky vs. (6) Viktor Troicki

    Stakhovsky and Troicki will be squaring off for the fifth time in their careers when they collide in round one of the Bangkok Open on Tuesday afternoon. Troicki leads the head-to-head series 3-1, and all four of their previous meetings have come on hard courts. They faced each other twice last season, with Troicki prevailing 6-4, 7-5 in Doha and 6-4, 6-4 at the Paris Masters.

    Both players have been struggling in 2012. Troicki is an even 23-23 for the year and he has lost in the first round of two consecutive events--including the U.S. Open. The Serb registers at 31st in the world, 19 spots off his career-high. Stakhovsky is down at 96th due to a 14-25 record for the season. He is coming off a second-round showing in St. Petersburg, where he fell to eventual runner-up Fabio Fognini. Troicki in three sets is the pick.

    (8) Bernard Tomic vs. Guillermo Garcia-Lopez

    It was a rocky summer for Tomic, who will look to recover his game when he begins the Asian swing on Tuesday in Bangkok. The 19-year-old Australian dropped his first match in six consecutive events in between the French Open and Olympics. He was at least decent during the U.S. Open Series, but he is down at No. 41 in the world.

    Tomic is beginning his week with a first-ever matchup against Garcia-Lopez. The 63rd-ranked Spaniard is an even 20-20 for his 2012 campaign after reaching the quarterfinals in St. Petersburg last week (lost to Mikhail Youzhny). Garcia-Lopez had been on a four match losing streak prior to New York, where he pulled off a comeback from two sets down to stun Juan Monaco. Don't be surprised if Tomic goes down in three competitive sets.

Two chokers playing each other. Who'll emerge as the victor.

@Ricky, what is MTF language?

I see Johnny Marray is playing in Bangkok. With whom Ricky?
Still hoping he'll make O2, but unlikely I guess.
