With one week of grasscourt play left prior to Wimbledon, Top 10ers David Ferrer and Richard Gasquet head the field this week at the Ordina Open in s’Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
The Ordina Open also marks an appearance by former French Open finalist Martin Verkerk, who this year has been competing mostly at Futures and Challengers minor-league events.
Other seeded players are Jarkko Nieminen, Ivan Ljubicic, Igor Andreev, Mario Ancic, Guillermo Canas and Fabrice Santoro.
The No. 2-seeded Gasquet opens against Belgian Olivier Rochus.
Ljubicic is the defending champion, in last year’s final defeating Dutch qualifier Peter Wessels.
