    Dolgopolov meets Nieminen in Brisbane opener Last year's Brisbane International finalist Alexandr Dolgopolov is set to open his bid against Jarkko Nieminen late Tuesday. The Ukrainian is joined in action by fellow seed Florian Mayer, who meets former World No. 8 Marcos Baghdatis.

    (4) Alexandr Dolgopolov vs. Jarkko Nieminen

    Fourth seed Alexandr Dolgopolov trails Finland's Jarkko Nieminen 2-0 in the series. Tuesday signals their first meeting on hard-court.

    Dolgopolov completed the 2012 season with a 35-25 record, aided by a championship-winning run in Washington. The world No. 18 will be making his fourth main-draw appearance in Brisbane, where he finished runner-up to World No. 3 Andy Murray last year.

    Nieminen is through to the second round after defeating fellow veteran Julien Benneteau in three sets. The 31-year-old is seeking his first Tour-level quarterfinal since late September, when he made the final four in Bangkok.

    (6) Florian Mayer vs. Marcos Baghdatis

    Sixth seed Florian Mayer is 0-1 lifetime against former world No. 8 Marcos Baghdatis, having lost their only previous meeting in 2007.

    Mayer returns to action following a modest 2012 season. The 29-year-old German, set to take part in his seventh Brisbane International, is bidding for his first victory since Beijing.

    Baghdatis began the tournament with a straight-set ousting of Australia's Benjamin Mitchell. The 27-year-old Cypriot will be looking to reach his third consecutive quarterfinal in Brisbane.
