Both Marin Cilic and Marcos Baghdatis are back in action after taking part in the London Olympics. They are facing each other for a spot in the Toronto third round on Wednesday.
Marin Cilic and Marcos Baghdatis will be squaring off for the fourth time in their careers when they clash in round two of the Rogers Cup on Wednesday. Cilic leads the head-to-head series 2-1, but they have split a pair of hard-court meetings (all in 2010).
Baghdatis is coming off a decent showing at the London Olympics, where he battled past Go Soeda and Richard Gasquet before falling to eventual gold medalist Andy Murray. The 45th-ranked Cypriot is 25-17 for the season after downing Carlos Berlocq 6-4, 6-3 in his opener on Monday.
Cilic earned a first-round bye as the No. 11 in seed in Toronto. He is hoping to bounce back from a second-round Olympic loss to Lleyton Hewitt. Cilic had been on a major hot streak, with a title at Queen's Club, a fourth-round finish at Wimbledon, a title in Umag, and a semifinal in Hamburg.
The 15th-ranked Croat is rounding into serious form now that he is healthy, so he has to be the favorite in this one. Baghdatis is one of the streakier players on tour so he is always dangerous, but Cilic in three sets is the pick.
