• Melzer takes on Sousa in Acapulco opener

    Melzer takes on Sousa in Acapulco opener As the qualifying round finishes up in Acapulco, No. 5 seed Jurgen Melzer will contest his first round match against Joao Sousa.

    This will be the first meeting between Austria's Jurgen Melzer and Joao Sousa of Portugal on a modest opening day at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel.

    Melzer hasn't had a bad start to the year. He made the third round of the Australian Open, where he lost to Tomas Berdych in straight sets and a run to the final in Zagreb. The Austrian comes into the event off a bad first round loss in Memphis to Igor Sijsling.

    Sousa has been working his way through the South American clay court swing, but he has yet to win a match. At No. 93 in the world, Sousa is ranked low enough that he had to qualify for Sao Paolo.

    Prediction - Given Sousa's current poor form and Melzer's experience, expect the Austrian to advance to the second round.
