    Granollers, Chardy in surprise third-round matchup Either Marcel Granollers or Jeremy Chardy will be in the Toronto quarterfinals. They are squaring off in a surprising third-round clash on Thursday.

    Marcel Granollers and Jeremy Chardy will be going head-to-head for the second time in their careers at the ATP level when they meet in an all-unseeded third-round matchup at the Rogers Cup on Thursday. Their only previous encounter came last year in Paris, where Chardy led 6-3 before Granollers retired.

    Granollers has been in mediocre form this season but he will be seeded for the U.S. Open thanks mostly to a stellar 2011 campaign. The 27th-ranked Spaniard has a .500 record (16-16) in 2012 having dismissed Sergiy Stakhovsky and Florian Mayer so far this week.

    Chardy, on the other hand, was awful in 2011 but is rounding into form in 2012. The 47th-ranked Frenchman is 17-14 on the ATP Tour following victories over Donald Young and heavily-favored countryman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

    Still, the jury is out on Chardy. His match against Young featured poor tennis the entire way and Tsonga turned in a lackluster performance in the aftermath of the Olympics. Granollers is more accustomed to the latter stages of big tournaments and he should advance after two competitive sets.
