    Tsonga, Raonic collide in Wimbledon second round A huge-serving affair is on the docket for Tuesday in London. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Milos Raonic will be battling for a place in the third round.

    Power tennis will be on display when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Milos Raonic meet for the first time in their careers in round two of the London Olympics on Tuesday.

    Tsonga did well just to make it out his opener, in which he faced an inspired Thomaz Bellucci. The sixth-ranked Frenchman won a high-quality thriller 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-4 on Sunday evening. An in-form Tsonga, a recent semifinalist at Wimbledon, is now 35-13 for his 2012 campaign.

    Raonic booked his spot in the second round with a routine 6-3, 6-4 victory over Japan's Tatsuma Ito. The big-serving Canadian is an outstanding 29-11 for the season, but any win is a good win for him at the moment. He lost in the Wimbledon second round to Sam Querrey and was taken out with surprising ease by Benjamin Becker in round two of Newport.

    Although he is not playing his absolute best at the moment, Raonic is a huge threat every time he takes the court--especially on grass. His first serve can keep him competitive in any match. Still, based on current form Tsonga should prevail in two entertaining sets.
