Top seeds Nikolay Davydenko and Mikhail Youzhny were sent crashing out of the Swiss Open in a rain-hit first round.

Frenchman Gael Monfils defeated the number one seed Davydenko 3-6 6-4 7-5 after resuming Tuesday’s rain-delayed match at 5-5 in the third.

Fellow Russian Youzhny lost to Austrian Stefan Koubek 6-4 6-3 in Gstaad.

The players in Gstaad are unlucky, as rain has interupted almost every match. Gael Monfils himself said that it was the coldest day he has ever played in.
