• Hewitt, Harrison in action at SAP Open

    Hewitt, Harrison in action at SAP Open Lleyton Hewitt and Ryan Harrison will take the court on Tuesday in San Jose. They are set for respective meetings with Blaz Kavcic and Benjamin Becker.

    Blaz Kavcic vs. Lleyton Hewitt

    Hewitt and Kavcic will be going head-to-head for the third time in their careers when they clash in round one of the SAP Open on Tuesday. Kavcic has won both of their previous encounters; 6-4, 7-6(3) two years ago in Winston-Salem and 7-6(2), 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-3 in the first round of last season's French Open.

    Hewitt is toiling down at No. 112 in the world but he has a clean bill of health for the most part at the beginning of his 2013 campaign. Kavcic had a memorable run at the Australian Open, where he won a grueling five-setter over James Duckworth to reach the third round before losing to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The Slovenian may have a slight edge in current form, but Hewitt should showcase his mental toughness en route to a three-set win.

    Benjamin Becker vs. Ryan Harrison

    Becker and Harrison will also be squaring off for the third time in their careers when they do battle on Tuesday in San Jose. Harrison leads the series 2-0, having prevailed via retirement (leading 6-4, 3-0) last year in Newport before winning 7-5, 6-4, 6-2 in the first round of the U.S. Open.

    Becker will be hard-pressed to turn the tide because he is a mere 1-4 at the ATP level this season. The 31-year-old German is coming off an opening-round loss to Ivan Dodig in Zagreb. Harrison has not played since losing to Novak Djokovic in the Melbourne second round. Look for the 57th-ranked American to prevail in three sets.
