    Robredo, Lorenzi collide at VTR Open A quarterfinal spot will be at stake when Tommy Robredo and Paolo Lorenzi clash on Thursday in Vina del Mar. This is the first career meeting between the two veterans.

    This isn't the same kind of comeback as that of Rafael Nadal. Tommy Robredo is nowhere near as big of a name and has not been out anywhere near as long.

    Still, it's a comeback nonetheless. Robredo is slowly but surely making his way back on tour and he is close to a return trip to the Top 100 at No. 102 in the world. The 30-year-old Spaniard is 2-3 for the season, with his lone win prior to this week coming against Ryan Harrison in Brisbane. Robredo beat Pere Riba 6-2, 6-2 in the VTR Open first round on Tuesday.

    Up next for Robredo is a first-ever meeting with Paolo Lorenzi, who is epitomizing the term "late bloomer." The 31-year-old Italian owns 17 career victories at the ATP level; eight game last year and he already has three this season. Lorenzi kicked off his Vina del Mar campaign with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Gianluca Naso.

    This will be a clay-court duel at its finest, complete with baseline rally after baseline rally. Based on current form, Lorenzi in three sets is the pick.
