    Raonic, Harrison in second round action in Newport No. 3 seed Milos Raonic and No. 6 seed Ryan Harrison will look for spots in the Newport quarters as the second round wraps up.

    Milos Raonic (3) vs. Benjamin Becker

    No. 3 seed Milos Raonic already has a win over world No. 112 Benjamin Becker this year. The two men met on the hard courts of Memphis; Raonic won that match 6-4, 6-4.

    Becker comes into this second round match with a losing record for the year. The German is 7-8 on the season, including his first round win this week. By contrast, Raonic already has two titles this season, though he stumbled a bit during the grass court season.

    Prediction – Raonic should get through this one in straight sets, particularly if he serves well.

    Ryan Harrison (6) vs. Jesse Levine

    American Ryan Harrison will take on lefty countryman Jesse Levine for a spot in the Newport quarters. Levine put in a good showing at Wimbledon. The American was forced to make his way through qualifying and won a main draw match. The world No. 90 also had a semifinal showing at the Nottingham Challenger.

    Harrison also had a good grass court season, with a semifinal showing in Eastbourne. He lost in the second round at Wimbledon, but he ran into Novak Djokovic there.

    Levine won his only match against Harrison, a grass-court encounter at Queen’s Club in 2010. Harrison should have the advantage this time around, but don't be surprised if it’s a struggle for the young American.
