Dudi Sela and Marco Chiudinelli lead the field for the Binghampton Challenger, the first challenger of the North American summer hard-court swing.
There's plenty of fascinating sub-plots for this hard-court event. You've got former world number 29 Sela back in form after making the Newport quarters last week, former US Open semi-finalist Robby Ginepri returning from yet another injury and teenager Denis Kudla trying to build on the promise he's shown in flashes over the past year.
One of the most dangerous floaters in the draw could be Britain's Alex Bogdanovic. 'Boggo' hasn't been anywhere near challenger-winning form for a couple of years now but lets not forget that the hugely talented left-hander was close to breaking the top 100 at his peak and he's on a roll right now after winning back to back futures titles.
Bogdanovic starts against third seed Izak Van Der Merwe. The South African beat Milos Raonic on the way to the ATP Newport quarters last week but may find that the Newport hard courts aren't as conducive to his serve-volley game.
It could be a good event for the British with Jamie Baker seeded sixth. Baker pushed Andy Roddick close at Wimbledon and he loves competing in the States. An old-fashioned baseline hustler who never gives up, he's got a decent draw and could make the semi-finals.
