I'm extremely excited about this as the tournament has one of the fastest tennis court surface.
Wild cards recipients Taylor Dent and Marcos Baghdatis will begin their first round match at 5PM.
Dent will face Andrey Golubev first and followed by Baghdatis against Rendy Lu Yen-hsun.
I attended the pressers held for Dent and Baghdatis yesterday. Dent was super confident of his chance and said he was 100% fit.
Meanwhile, it didn't look too good for Baghdatis who refused to think much about his opponent.
Earlier I was at the practice court and saw Rendy practicing with another wild card Joachim "Pim Pim" Johansson.

I asked Rendy to comment about his first round match against Baghdatis (they never play each other before) after his practice. So check out this video.
