    Houston - Almagro meets Monfils in second round Top seed Nicolas Almagro is set to make his Houston debut on Wednesday, as he takes on former world No. 7 Gael Monfils. The players are joined in action by second seed Tommy Haas, who faces Lithuania's Ricardas Berankis.

    (1) Nicolas Almagro vs. Gael Monfils

    World No. 12 Nicolas Almagro looks to break a 2-2 series tie against world No. 103 Gael Monfils. The two last met at the 2009 tournament in Acapulco, where the Spaniard won the championship title in straight sets.

    Almagro is 14-6 for the season after reaching the round of 16 in Miami. The 27-year-old Murcia native is seeking his first victory at the US Men's Clay Court Championship.

    Monfils is through to the second round after recording a straight-sets victory over former World No. 4 James Blake. The 26-year-old Frenchman looks to win consecutive matches for the first time since the Australian Open.

    (2) Tommy Haas vs. Ricardas Berankis

    Second seed Tommy Haas returns to competition following a semifinal finish at the Masters 1000 Miami. The 35-year-old is 14-6 after his effort, which included a straight-set dismissal of world No. 1 and two-time defending champion Novak Djokovic. Haas is a former champion in Houston, having won the 2004 title over former World No. 1 Andy Roddick.

    World No. 77 Ricardas Berankis rallied to record an opening-round victory over Canada's Jesse Levine, 6-7(3), 7-5, 6-4. The 22-year-old Lithuanian will attempt to win consecutive matches for the first time since February, when he reached the final eight in Delray Beach.
