    Baker gets another shot at Kohlschreiber A second-round spot in Cincainnti is at stake as Brian Baker goes up against Philipp Kohlschreiber on Monday. The winner will face Bernard Tomic.

    Philipp Kohlschreiber and Brian Baker will be going head-to-head for the second time in their careers and for the second time this season when they clash in round one of the Western & Southern Open on Monday afternoon. Their only previous encounter came at Wimbledon, where Kohlschreiber ended Baker's run in the fourth round with a 6-1, 7-6(4), 6-3 victory.

    Kohlschreiber is playing outstanding tennis at the moment. The 17th ranked German skipped the Olympics, but he preceded that with a runner-up showing in Kitzbuhel. Coming off a tough third-round Toronto loss to John Isner, Kohlschreiber boasts a 37-18 record for his 2012 campaign.

    Baker will likely be the 2012 ATP Comeback Player of the Year. After almost six full years off, the 78th-ranked American reached the Nice final prior to his surprising Wimbledon performance. But it has suddenly hit a huge snag. Baker did not win a match in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Washington, and not even at last week's Aptos Challenger.

    The question is which Baker will show up for this one. An upset is not out of the question because the underdog can obviously catch fire at times, but Kohlscheiber in straight sets is the pick based on current form.
