• Volandri, Mayer in Vina del Mar action

    Volandri, Mayer in Vina del Mar action This week in Vina del Mar is all about Rafael Nadal, but he is not playing doubles until Tuesday or singles until Wednesday. Taking the court on Monday, among others, are Filippo Volandri and Leonardo Mayer.

    Filippo Volandri and Leonardo Mayer will be going head-to-head for the first time in their careers when they do battle in round one of the VTR Open on Monday.

    This is the most important time of the season for Volandri--a host of clay-court tournaments and none that feature the kind of player fields that will be on display in April and May. Of course, Volandri may have to deal with Rafael Nadal during this Golden Swing, but for now that isn't an issue. The 90th-ranked Italian is coming off a four-set loss to Gilles Simon at the Australian Open.

    Mayer if off to a similar start in 2013. He did not play any of the ATP warmup events then was dealt a tough first-rounder in Melbourne, where he went down to Sydney champion Bernard Tomic.

    The 76th-ranked Argentine also does his best work on the slow stuff, so this could be a relatively high-quality encounter. Look for Volandri to advance after three sets of grueling baseline tennis.
