    Dubai - Seppi, Youzhny in first-round action Tournament seed Andreas Seppi will begin his run at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships with a first-round match against France's Paul-Henri Mathieu. He is joined in action by fellow seed Mikhail Youzhny, who faces Blaz Kavcic.

    (7) Andreas Seppi vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu

    Seventh seed Andreas Seppi trails France's Paul-Henri Mathieu 0-4 in the head-to-head series. The players are set to meet for the first time since 2009.

    Seppi looks to regroup after suffering a first-round loss to Germany's Matthias Bachinger in Rotterdam. The 29-year-old Italian will be making his 6th appearance in Dubai, where he is yet to record a main-draw match victory.

    Former world No. 12 Mathieu will attempt to win his first match of the season, having lost opening-round matches at the Australian Open, Montpellier and Rotterdam. The 31-year-old is seeking his first victory in Dubai since 2008.

    (8) Mikhail Youzhny vs. Blaz Kavcic

    Eighth seed Mikhail Youzhny leads Slovenia's Blaz Kavcic 1-0 in the series, having won their only previous meeting at the 2011 Australian Open.

    Former world No. 8 Youzhny is back on court after losing a first-round match to Thiemo de Bakker in Rotterdam. The veteran Russian will contest his 12th Dubai event this week, where he has reached the final four or better on four occasions.

    Kavcic has compiled a 4-5 record for the season. The 25-year-old will be making his first appearance at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships on Monday.
