    Tomic, Harrison meet in Cincinnati first round The first day of main-draw action in Cincinnati features Bernard Tomic and Ryan Harrison. They will battle on Sunday with the winner to go up against either Philipp Kohlschreiber or Brian Baker.

    Bernard Tomic and Ryan Harrison will be going head-to-head for the first time in their careers when they clash in round one of the Western & Southern Open on Sunday evening.

    Both players are struggling at the moment, with neither one having any realistic shot at U.S. Open seeding. Tomic peaked at a career-high ranking of No. 27 late last year but he currently registers at 49th. The 19-year-old Aussie, an even 20-20 for the season, had lost a shocking seven matches in a row heading into Toronto. He ended the skid by defeating Michael Berrer before going down to Novak Djokovic.

    Harrison, 10 spots behind Tomic at No. 59, is a similar 21-19 for the year. The 20-year-old American enjoyed a solid grass-court stretch from Eastbourne through Newport, but he lost to James Blake in the Atlanta first round and fell to Santiago Giraldo in his London Olympics opener.

    Tomic is more solid from the baseline, so Harrison will have trouble in this one if he is serving poorly and unable to dictate play from the start. But he will have a good chance if he plays aggressive and utilizes his stellar all-court game. Look for Tomic to win this battle of up-and-comers in three entertaining sets.
