    Top seeds Tsonga and Berdych in Thursday action in Stockholm Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Tomas Berdych will make their 2012 Stockholm debuts on Thursday as the second round wraps up.

    Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (1) vs. Go Soeda

    France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is in the hunt for one of the remaining World Tour Finals spots, which might give him extra motivation this week. The Frenchman currently sits on the bubble in the final No. 8 spot.

    His first opponent this week, after a first-round bye, is Japan's Go Soeda, ranked No. 57 in the world. The two men have met on one other occasion, at the 2011 Wimbledon Championships. Tsonga won that encounter in straight sets.

    Soeda hasn't been in particularly good form this fall. The Japanese man had a pair of first round losses coming into Stockholm. He got past French qualifier Maxime Teixeira in the first round but isn't likely to be as lucky against Teixeira's compatriot in the second.

    Prediction - Tsonga in straight sets.

    Tomas Berdych (2) vs. Jurgen Zopp

    Tournament No. 2 seed Tomas Berdych will take on Estonia's Jurgen Zopp in his first match this week. The Czech, like Tsonga, is looking to shore up one of the remaining spots for the London year-end event.

    Zopp is ranked 87 in the world and took a bad loss to Berdych the only other time the two men met, at this year's US Open. Berdych is playing good tennis at the moment. He comes into the If Stockholm Open off a run to the semifinals in Shanghai, where he lost to eventual champion Novak Djokovic.

    Prediction - Berdych through in 2.
