At the Open Sud de France in Montpellier (France) Ruben (ATP-132) was picked up for the main draw. He will be in action on Wednesday.
Ruben lost in the last qualifying round in Montpellier, but due to the withdrawal of Jiri Vesely (ATP-97) he was picked up as a lucky loser. On Wednesday, he will face Marcos Baghdatis (ATP-128) in the first round. In mutual encounters the Cypriot is leading 2-0.
