    Cilic, Tipsarevic clash for Toronto quarterfinals A place in the Toronto quarterfinals will be at stake when Marin Cilic goes up against Janko Tipsarevic on Thursday. The winner is on course to face either Jeremy Chardy or Marcel Granollers.

    Marin Cilic and Janko Tipsarevic will be squaring off for the eighth time in their careers when they do battle in round three of the Rogers Cup on Thursday.

    Cilic is dominating the head-to-head series 6-1, and all seven of their previous encounters have come on hard courts. They faced each other twice last season, with Tipsarevic finally getting on the scoreboard via a 6-3, 7-6(4) victory in Miami before Cilic prevailed 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 in the St. Petersburg title match.

    Tipsarevic, however, is in the midst of another outstanding year. The ninth-ranked Serb owns a 42-16 record for his 2012 campaign, which includes a quarterfinal showing in Miami and a title in Stuttgart. Tipsarevic lost to John Isner in the third round of the Olympics, but he bounced back on Wednesday with a 7-6(2), 6-4 win over Mikhail Youzhny.

    Cilic started the season slow, but he has caught fire this summer. The 15th-ranked Croat won Queen's Club, reached the Wimbledon fourth round, captured another title in Umag, and made it to the Hamburg semis. After losing his second Olympic match to Lleyton Hewitt, Cilic dismissed Marcos Baghdatis 7-5, 6-3 on Wednesday.

    This should be a high-quality clash with both men playing stellar tennis. Look for Tipsarevic to get his second win over Cilic after three entertaining sets.
