    Almagro opens Rome bid against Benneteau World No. 12 Nicolas Almagro is set to highlight Tuesday play as he takes the court against veteran Julien Benneteau. The players are joined in first-round action by Jeremy Chardy, who faces Spain's Feliciano Lopez.

    (12) Nicolas Almagro vs. Julien Benneteau

    World No. 12 Nicolas Almagro trails World No. 32 Julien Benneteau 2-1 in the series. The players are scheduled to contest their first clay-court meeting Monday afternoon.

    Almagro looks to regroup after suffering a second-round loss to Russia's Mikhail Youzhny in Madrid. The 27-year-old Spaniard is twice a quarterfinalist in Rome, having reached the final four in 2006 and 2008.

    Benneteau is a modest 12-11 for the season following opening-round defeats in his last five tournaments. The 31-year-old Frenchman will be making his fifth appearance at the Masters 1000 Rome.

    Jeremy Chardy vs. Feliciano Lopez

    World No. 29 Jeremy Chardy trails world No. 43 Feliciano Lopez 1-0 in the series, having lost their only previous meeting earlier this year in Sydney. Tuesday marks their first match on clay.

    Chardy looks to rebound after losing a second-round match to fellow Frenchman Gilles Simon in Madrid. The 26-year-old is seeking his 9th victory of the season.

    Lopez enters into Rome with a 5-6 season record following first-round defeats in Indian Wells, Miami and Madrid. The veteran Spaniard is set to contest his 10th Masters 1000 Rome, where he advanced to the last eight in 2010.
