    Berdych, Wawrinka in Rome action on Tuesday Tomas Berdych and Stanislas Wawrinka will take the court as round 1 finishes up and round 2 gets under way at the Internazionali BNL d"Italia.

    Tomas Berdych (6) vs. Denis Istomin

    Czech Tomas Berdych has a short but interesting history with Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin. The two men have played twice before, both in 2010. Berdych won both, but their first meeting was a clash of epic proportions at Wimbledon, that finished after five grueling sets, including three tiebreakers.

    Berdych should be in good shape to get another win over Istomin. The Czech played a solid tournament in Madrid last week, defeating Andy Murray along the way and earning a spot in the semifinals, where he lost to Stanislas Wawrinka. Berdych in straight sets.

    Stanislas Wawrinka (15) vs. Carlos Berlocq

    Madrid finalist Stanislas Wawrinka is actually ranked higher than his seeding this week indicates. The Swiss' run to the final last week propelled him to No. 10 in the world.

    Wawrinka has played some excellent clay court tennis this spring. He has a quarterfinal in Monte Carlo, he won the Oeiras event and he made the finals last week.

    None of that is good news for qualifier Carlos Berlocq, unless the Argentine can cash in on possible fatigue from the Swiss man from all of the tennis he's played in the past few weeks. Berlocq has won a pair of matches on the dirt this spring, with one of those wins coming in Davis Cup against France.

    Prediction - Fatigue aside, Wawrinka should get through this one in straight sets.
