    Auckland - Monfils, Melzer headline Tuesday play Wildcard Gael Monfils is set to begin his run at the Heineken Open, as he takes the court against qualifier Benjamin Becker late Tuesday. The Frenchman is joined in first-round action by 6th seed Jurgen Melzer, who faces qualifier Greg Jones.

    (WC) Gael Monfils vs. (Q) Benjamin Becker

    Former world No. 7 Gael Monfils holds a 3-0 series advantage over world No. 65 Benjamin Becker. Tuesday marks their fourth consecutive hard-court meeting.

    Monfils makes his return to competition following a quarterfinal finish in Doha. The 26-year-old Frenchman won a pair of matches before falling to Germany's Daniel Brands in straight sets. Monfils is seeking his first victory at the Heineken Open.

    Becker looks to rebound after suffering an opening-round exit to former World No. 8 Mikhail Youzhny in Doha. The 31-year-old veteran is bidding for his first tour-level success since late August, when he reached the second round in Winston-Salem.

    (6) Jurgen Melzer vs. (Q) Greg Jones

    World No. 29 Jurgen Melzer is back on court following a quarterfinal effort at the Brisbane International. The 31-year-old Austrian, seeded 6th this week, recorded consecutive victories before falling to eventual finalist Grigor Dimitrov. Melzer will be making his third appearance at the Heineken Open.

    World No. 373 Greg Jones will attempt to win his first tour-level match on Tuesday. The 23-year-old Australian is set to contest his first main-draw match since the 2012 Australian Open (lost to Alexandr Dolgopolov).
