• Raonic and Del Potro in Paris action on Wednesday

    Raonic and Del Potro in Paris action on Wednesday Milos Raonic and Juan Martin Del Potro will kick off their 2012 Paris Masters bids as the second round wraps up.

    Milos Raonic (14) vs. Jeremy Chardy

    This will be the first-ever meeting between Milos Raonic and Frenchman Jeremy Chardy. World No. 34 Chardy has the advantage of playing for the home crowd in Bercy and he comes in off an impressive showing in the first round, where he demolished Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-0, 6-3.

    Raonic has had one good result this fall and a number of disappointments. The Canadian made the final in Tokyo, which he lost to hometown hero Kei Nishikori. But since then, he's only won one match, a first-rounder against Marinko Matosevic at the Shanghai Masters. He had a first-round exit in Valencia last week.

    The indoor courts should favor Raonic, but Chardy could well make a match of it. The 14th seed for the win in three.

    Juan Martin Del Potro (7) vs. Alejandro Falla

    Colombia's Alejandro Falla can't be pleased to see Juan Martin Del Potro in his draw again so soon. The two men met in Basel just last week. Del Potro won that match 6-4, 6-1.

    Del Potro is on an indoor tear similar to the one Roger Federer enjoyed last year. The Argentine has two titles in as many weeks playing in Europe, a streak he started in Vienna and continued impressively in Basel last week.

    The only bit of good news for Falla is that Del Potro has played so much tennis that fatigue is likely to be an issue sooner rather than later. But even if Del Potro tires out later in the tournament, he should have enough left in the tank to get the win on Wednesday.
