    Raonic battles Stakhovsky, Anderson clashes with Querrey Milos Raonic will look to maintain his hot streak against Sergiy Stakhovsky on Thursday in Memphis. Kevin Anderson and Sam Querrey are also eying a spot in the quarterfinals.

    Sergiy Stakhovsky vs. (4) Milos Raonic

    Stakhovsky and Raonic will be going head-to-head for the second time in their careers when they meet in round two of the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships on Thursday night. Their only previous encounter came on the hard courts of Kuala Lumpur in 2010, where Raonic prevailed 6-7(8), 7-6(9), 6-3. The 35th-ranked Canadian is an awesome 12-1 this season and he sustained momentum from a title last week in San Jose by beating Ernests Gulbis in straight sets on Wednesday.

    Stakhovsky was mediocre at best in 2011 and he is down at No. 68 in the world rankings. The Ukrainian has mostly continued his lackluster play, with a 2-5 record for this season prior to his arrival in Memphis. However, Stakhovsky dismissed Robert Kendrick 6-3, 7-6(6) in his opener on Tuesday. Count on Raonic getting the job done in straight sets.

    (WC) Sam Querrey vs. (7) Kevin Anderson

    Anderson and Querrey will be squaring off for the sixth time in their careers at the ATP level and for the seventh time overall when they do battle in the Memphis second round on Thursday. Querrey leads the head-to-head series 4-1, including 2-1 on hard courts. They split a pair of meetings in 2010 before Anderson retired on the clay courts of Rome last spring after losing the first set in a tiebreaker.

    Querrey will be hard-pressed to get another win over Anderson because he has been struggling since his return from injury. The 99th-ranked American entered this week with just a 1-4 record for his 2012 campaign, but he defeated Alejandro Falla in three sets on Tuesday. Anderson, a quarterfinalist last week in San Jose, is 5-3 this season after beating Robby Ginepri 7-5, 6-3 on Wednesday. The 6'7'' South African registers at No. 36 in the rankings and he should take this in two tight sets.
