• Klizan and Tomic clash in Marseille first round

    2/18/13 5:33 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Klizan and Tomic clash in Marseille first round Bernard Tomic will do battle with No. 8 seed Martin Klizan as the first day of action gets underway in the Open 13 in Marseille.

    Martin Klizan (8) vs. Bernard Tomic

    Slovakia's Martin Klizan will kick off his Marseille campaign against Bernard Tomic, the new hope of Australian tennis. Klizan had an awful start to the season until last week, when he made a respectable quarterfinal showing in Rotterdam.

    Klizan is actually ranked higher than Tomic (world No. 45) at No. 28 in the world. But Tomic is 7-2 on the season, a record that includes a fair number of wins over players ranked higher than he is. Unfortunately for the Aussie's camp, he seems to play his best tennis when he's on the home court. He won the title in Sydney and made the third round of the Australian Open, where he lost to Roger Federer. Last week he suffered a first-round loss at the hands of Grigor Dimitrov.

    Based on 2013 form, Tomic might well be considered the favorite, even though he is ranked lower than his opponent. Klizan has been dreadful. But like the courts in Rotterdam, these indoor hard courts do not compliment Tomic's game much.

    Prediction - Klizan in 3.
