• Kuala Lumpur - Melzer, Baker in first round action

    9/24/12 4:42 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Kuala Lumpur - Melzer, Baker in first round action Jurgen Melzer and Brian Baker will take to the court on Monday in Kuala Lumpur as the Malaysian Open kicks off.

    Jurgen Melzer (8) vs. Vasek Pospisil

    This will be the first-ever meeting between Vasek Pospisil of Canada and Austria's Jurgen Melzer. Melzer is ranked 37th in the world. Pospisil is an up-and-coming player, but he still posts his best results on the Challenger circuit.

    Melzer hasn't been in great form of late. The Austrian had a dismal loss in the first round of the US Open, going down to Bradley Klahn, an American ranked 489th in the world. Melzer certainly has the game to get past Pospisil, but his lack of consistency of late may mean an upset in the making. Prediction - Melzer in 3.

    Brian Baker vs. Michael Yani

    Brian Baker is perhaps the big comeback story of 2012. The American was sidelined for years with injuries and eventually had Tommy John surgery to repair his elbow. Baker had impressive runs in Nice and again at Wimbledon, where he came through qualifying to advance to the round of 16. He will take on countryman Michael Yani, who is ranked No. 238 in the world.

    Baker didn't play particularly well on the North American hard-court swing, but he should be more than capable of getting past Yani in straight sets.
