    Berdych opens Paris campaign against Seppi Tomas Berdych will contest his Paris opener against Andreas Seppi on Tuesday. A place in the third round is at stake.

    Tomas Berdych and Andreas Seppi will be squaring off for the seventh time in their careers and for the third time this season when they clash in round two of the BNP Paribas Masters on Tuesday night.

    Berdych leads the head-to-head series 4-2, including 3-1 on hard courts. Seppi has not defeated Berdych since 2008 and the Czech has won their last three encounters. Berdych prevailed 6-3, 6-4 this year in Rotterdam and 6-3, 6-3 earlier this month at the Shanghai Masters.

    The world No. 6 is a stellar 57-19 for his 2012 campaign and he is heading into a third straight appearance at the World Tour Finals. The last few months of Berdych's season include a semifinal showing at the U.S. Open, a semi in Shanghai, and most recently a title in Stockholm.

    Seppi is wrapping up the best year of his career. The veteran Italian boasts a 38-26 record and is up to a career-high ranking of No. 22 in the world. He kicked off his week with a 6-2, 2-6, 7-6(5) victory over Martin Klizan on Monday.

    This is an especially big opportunity for Berdych, because Roger Federer is out of the tournament so Berdych is the highest-ranked player in the top quarter of the draw. The No. 5 seed has an edge over Seppi indoors and he is completely on top of his game, so he should advance in straight sets.
