Second seed Czech Tomas Berdych, Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria and seventh seed South African Kevin Anderson will be in action on Day 2 of the Aegon Championship on Tuesday.

Spaniard Feliciano Lopez will be up against Dusan Lajovic of Serbia in the first match of the day and the winner will face Australian Lleyton Hewitt in the second round, while 12th seed Russian Dmitry Tursunov will face Igor Sijsling of Netherland in the first round.

Second-highest ranked Brit Dan Evans, who defeated Austrian Jurgen Melzer in a thrilling three set battle, will face Anderson in the second round. Anderson is likely to advance but Evans is hoping to give a tough fight to his much higher-ranked opponent.

"I played him in a Challenger ages ago when I was about 18," Evans said. "It should be a good match. It will be a tough match, but I'll just play my game and see what happens."

Last year's finalist Marin Cilic will face world no 60 Marinko Matosevic in the opening round. Matosevic is expected to give the Croatian a tough fight after reaching the final and getting the feel of grass in the Nottingham Challenger tournament.

The ninth seed would be hoping to pick up momentum ahead of the grass-court season and put behind two losses against world no two Novak Djokovic. The 2012 winner was knocked out by Djokovic in the French Open.

Cilic has a better head-to-head record against Matosevic as he defeated the Australian in all three previous meetings. Their most recent clash was in the Monte Carlo Masters, which went all the way to the third set.

World no 13 Dimitrov will start his grass-court season against Britain's Jeremy Ward on Tuesday. This is their first meeting at professional level but they faced each other in a challenger tournament in 2008, when the Brit won the match.

The 23-year-old has been in good form throughout the season but faced a shocking first round exit at the French Open by Ivo Karlovic. His best performance at the Queen's Club is a semifinals appearance in 2012.

The fourth seed is likely to win the contest against the 27-year-old, who is looking to put his dreadful start on grass behind as he lost his opening match in Nottingham.

Czech Republic's Berdych will face James Duckworth, who defeated Israeli Dudi Sela in the opening encounter. Duckworth, after losing the first set against Sela, made a dramatic turnaround to take the next two sets and cruise to the next round.

This is the first time these two are playing against each other and the second seed is likely to advance to the third round.
