    Umag - Cilic takes on Granollers for home title Croatia's Marin Cilic will battle Spanaird Marcel Granollers to win the Vegeta Croatia Open.

    Marin Cilic, the tournament No. 2 seed and world No. 15, is no stranger to Marcel Granollers. The two men met on five occasions between 2008 and 2011. Cilic won all of those meetings except the last one, which came on the hard courts of Valencia last year.

    Cilic has had a much better 2012 season than Granollers. The Croat won the event at Queen's Club and he made the round of 16 at Wimbledon, losing to eventual finalist Andy Murray. He also has a showing in the final of Munich in the best of his clay court tournaments.

    Granollers is ranked 24th in the world, but the first half of his year has been spotty. Coming into Umag, the Spaniard had a losing record on the year, running 11-14. His best result by far was a round of 16 showing at Roland Garros.

    Prediction – Granollers is more comfortable on clay than Cilic, but the Croat will be playing in front of the home crowd. Cilic in 3.

My gut feel tells me Granollers might pich this and if first set goes his way even at home it could be in 2, this is an iffy one but think the final record of the Croat will be 7-8 and 0-2 on clay with consecutive runner up efforts
