MARSEILLE, France, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Davis Cup players return to ATP action this week at the Marseille Open.
Top seed Juan Carlos Ferrero went 1-1 in his singles matches last weekend as Spain defeated Morocco in the first round of Davis Cup competition. Ferrero has played only one tournament
* the Milan Indoor -- due to injury and lost in the second round.
Ferrero's first-round opponent on Tuesday will be Michel Kratochvil of Switzerland, who went 0-2 in singles in his country's loss to Russia.
Kratochvil lost one of his matches to Yevgeny Kafelnikov, the second seed and defending champion here.
Third seed Sebastien Grosjean won both his singles matches, including the clincher, as France beat the Netherlands over the weekend. Grosjean, who lost to Kafelnikov in last year's final here, suffered early-round defeats in his only two tournaments this season.
