    Tsonga takes on Baghdatis at Shanghai Masters Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is looking for a quarterfinal spot as he battles Marcos Baghdatis on Thursday in Shanghai. The winner will face either Tomas Berdych or Sam Querrey in the quarters.

    Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Marcos Baghdatis will be going head-to-head for the third time in their careers when they clash in round three of the Shanghai Rolex Masters on Thursday. Tsonga has won both of their previous encounters; 6-3, 6-2 at the 2011 Rome event and 7-6(2), 6-4 early this season in Dubai.

    Baghdatis, however, is playing his best tennis of the year right now. The 46th-ranked Cypriot reached the Tokyo semifinals last week and his fine form has continued in Shanghai. After destroying Fabio Fognini 6-2, 6-2, he outlasted a red-hot Milos Raonic in three tiebreak sets. Baghdatis is a solid 32-22 for his 2012 campaign and he is making a late push for Australian Open seeding.

    Tsonga is also heating up as he heads into another appearance at the World Tour Finals. The sixth-ranked Frenchman suffered an early loss at the U.S. Open, but he bounced back to win the Metz title last month. Tsonga earned a first-round bye in Shanghai as the No. 5 seed before getting past compatriot Benoit Paire 7-6(7), 7-5 on Wednesday.

    An upset is possible here, because Baghdatis is on top of his game and Tsonga struggled through a wild, error-strewn affair with Paire. This could go either way, but Tsonga in three sets is the pick.
