The SAP Open should be a real crowd-pleaser on Tuesday, as there will be a number of significant matches, including the likes of Benjamin Becker, Xavier Malisse and Kei Nishikori

There should be plenty of excitement on Tuesday at the SAP Open, as several of the seeds begin their title campaigns. The most intriguing contest here apears to be the match between Xavier Malisse and Milos Raonic. Malisse is the No. 4 seed this week, but could be in for a struggle against the big-serving youngster. Raonic marked his presence on the tour with a lengthy Australian Open run last month, and has been tipped for big things. This could be a major test for the Belgian.

Sixth seed Benjamin Becker is also in action here. He also faces a young player, in the form of Richard Berankis of Lithuania. Many people have Berankis billed as the favourite for this match, even though he is ranked below the German. Berankis has climbed the rankings at an astonishing pace over the past few years, and he appears to be on his way to the top fifty. Even so, this looks set to be a very close match, and it seems destined for three sets.

Kei Nishikori will begin his SAP Open challenge with a match against Jan Hajek. Hajek fell out of the top hundred last month, and is still without a win this season. Nishikori, on the other hand, is on his way back towards the top fifty and has achieved some decent results this season. He appears to be the favourite, and should be able to progress today.

There will also be a match between Brian Dabul and Alejandro Falla. Dabul outranks Falla, though many pundits are expecting Falla to have the upper hand in this clash. This contest might not draw the biggest crowd, but it looks like it could go right down to the wire, and should be worth keeping an eye on.
