Gaël Monfils, who has made a very good impression, will face the Romanian Victor Crivoi. A difficult match awaits Jo-Wilfried Tsonga; he faces the Argentine Juan Monaco, who is very at home on the clay.

Paul-Henri Mathieu has to get past Pablo Andujar of Spain to make it to the next round. Christophe Rochus plays Arnaud Clément on court 2, and Jérémy Chardy faces the Italian Simone Bolelli.  

Among the top-ranked players, Roger Federer faces the Argentine Jose Acasuso on the central court, and Serena Williams will confront Virgina Ruano Pascual of Spain.
