  • Tipsarevic takes on Granollers in Toronto quarterfinals

    Tipsarevic takes on Granollers in Toronto quarterfinals The rain-delayed Rogers Cup progresses into quarterfinal action on Friday night. Janko Tipsarevic will battle Marcel Granollers for a place in the semis.


    Janko Tipsarevic and Marcel Granollers will be going head-to-head for the second time in their careers when they meet in the Rogers Cup quarterfinals on Friday night. Their only previous encounter came two years ago on the grass courts of Queen's Club, where Granollers prevailed 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.

    Tipsarevic is a considerable favorite this time around thanks to stellar and consistent play. The ninth-ranked Serb boasts a 43-16 record for his 2012 campaign, which includes a quarterfinal in Miami and a title in Stuttgart. So far this week Tipsarevic has taken out both Mikhail Youzhny and Marin Cilic in straight sets.

    Granollers is rounding into form just in time for the season's final major, where he has assured himself of a seed thanks to his Toronto showing. The 27th-ranked Spaniard improved his 2012 mark to 17-16 with victories over Sergiy Stakhovsky, Florian Mayer, and Jeremy Chardy.

    On clay this would be just about an even matchup, but Tipsarevic's flat hitting and pace of shot are conducive to hard courts. Look for the No. 5 seed to advance in two high-quality sets.
