    Tsonga, Tipsarevic kick off Toronto campaigns Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Janko Tipsarevic will be in action on Wednesday in Toronto. They are set for respective meetings with Jeremy Chardy and Mikhail Youzhny.

    Mikhail Youzhny vs. (5) Janko Tipsarevic

    Youzhny and Tipsarevic will be facing each other for the sixth time in their careers and for the second time this season when they do battle in round two of the Rogers Cup on Wednesday. They squared off just recently in the Wimbledon third round, a matchup that Youzhny took 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 to pull ahead of Tipsarevic 3-2 in the head-to-head series.

    Tipsarevic earned a first-round bye as the No. 5 seed in a depleted Toronto field. The ninth-ranked Serb is a stellar 41-16 for the season but he is looking to bounce back from a third-round Olympic loss to John Isner. Youzhny, a first-round loser at the Olympics, beat Kevin Anderson 6-1, 7-6(3) on Tuesday. The 30th-ranked Russian is 24-12 for his 2012 campaign. Look for Tipsarevic to get revenge in three entertaining sets.

    (3) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. Jeremy Chardy

    It will be an all-French affair when Tsonga and Chardy clash for the second time in their careers on Wednesday. Their only previous encounter came in the Johannesburg final three years ago, when Tsonga triumphed 6-4, 7-6(5). The world No. 6 is a heavy favorite this time around and he boasts a 37-14 record for the year. Tsonga is coming off a memorable Olympics, in which he reached the quarterfinals after beating Milos Raonic 25-23 a third-set marathon.

    Chardy endured an awful season in 2011 but he is a respectable 16-14 at the ATP level in 2012. The world No. 47 extended Donald Young's losing streak to 16 with a 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-0 victory on Monday. Chardy may be able to stay on the court in this one if he serves well, but Tsonga in easy straight sets is the pick.
