Jamaicans Charles Pyne and Gareth Henry have been paired with tough opponents for the first round of the Peru International.

The event, which shuttles off tomorrow in Lima, Peru, will see Jamaica's number one-ranked Pyne taking on Pan American number three-ranked player and fourth seed, Stefan Wojcikiewicz of Canada.

Henry, Jamaica's number two- ranked player, is down to play regional number one ranked and tournament number one seed, Kevin Cordon of Guatemala.

Pyne and Henry, who are seeking to boost their world rankings as they seek to qualify for the London 2012 Olympics, would considerably boost their stocks if they overcome their opponents.

Pyne is currently ranked at 98 in the world, while Henry is at 120.

The cut-off date for Olympic qualification is April 29.
