1:51 pm on 8 January 2013

An all-Dutch clash kicks off the second day's centre court action at the Heineken Open tennis tournament in Auckland as the top four seeds continue to be absent, courtesy of a first-round bye.

Robin Haase takes on qualifier and countryman Igor Sijsling before Austrian sixth seed Jurgen Melzer meets Australian qualifier Greg Jones.

The last afternoon match holds all the local interest, with New Zealand wildcard Dan King-Turner facing qualifier, Jesse Levine of Canada.

The final match of the night pits Taiwan's Lu Yen-Hsun against Benoit Paire of France - the winner earns a date against the defending champion from Spain, David Ferrer.
