    Auckland - Ferrer opens title defense against Lu World No. 5 David Ferrer will begin his quest for a fourth Heineken Open title, as he takes on Chinese Taipei's Yen-Hsun Lu. The players are slated to contest their third ATP World Tour meeting on Wednesday.

    Top seed David Ferrer looks to break a 1-1 series tie with World No. 60 Yen-Hsun Lu. Wednesday signals their third consecutive hard-court meeting.

    Ferrer makes his return to competition following a semifinal finish in Doha. The 30-year-old Spaniard advanced to the final four before losing to Russia's Nikolay Davydenko, 2-6, 3-6. Ferrer is set to contest his ninth Heineken Open, where he sealed title-winning runs in 2007, 2011 and 2012.

    Lu opened the tournament with a three-sets ousting of France's Benoit Paire, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2. The 29-year-old is seeking his first tour-level quarterfinal since June, when he made the final eight at Queen's Club.

    Prediction: Ferrer in straight sets.
