MOSCOW, Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Seeded players Max Mirnyi of Belarus, Nicolas Kiefer of Germany and Igor Andreev of Russia were among Monday's opening-round winners at the Kremlin Cup.

Fourth-seeded Mirnyi beat Russian Evgeniy Kirillov 6-1, 6-3. Sixth-seeded Kiefer, who reached the final here in 2001, beat fellow German Alexander Popp 6-4, 6-1, and seventh-seeded Andreev defeated German Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-4, 6-2.

This week's top seed is defending champion Nikolay Davydenko of Russia, who beat Britain's Greg Rusedski in last year's indoor finale here.
