    Tsonga takes on Cilic in Miami fourth round A place in the quarters will be on the line when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga battles Marin Cilic on Tuesday in Miami. This is just the third meeting of their career.

    Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Marin Cilic will be squaring off for the third time in their careers when they collide in the fourth round of the Sony Open on Tuesday afternoon. The head-to-head series is tied up at one apiece; Cilic prevailed in three sets six years ago at Queen's Club before Tsonga scored a 6-3, 6-4 victory at the 2011 Cincinnati Masters.

    Both players are in fine form to begin their 2013 campaigns. Tsonga owns a title this season in Marseille to go along with quarterfinal finishes at the Australian Open and Indian Wells Masters. So far in Miami, the eighth-ranked Frenchman has dismissed both Viktor Troicki and Jarkko Nieminen in straight sets.

    Cilic has also made his way into the last 16 without the loss of a set. The 11th-ranked Croat held off Santiago Giraldo in two tight sets before defeating John Isner 6-3, 7-6(3) on Monday night. Cilic is now 14-4 for the season, which includes a title on the indoor hard courts of Zagreb.

    This should be one of the day's best matches with both men playing stellar tennis. The relative slowness of the court should favor Cilic to some extent, but Tsonga boasts a slightly bigger game and when he is on point--which he is right now--he is more dangerous. Look for the No. 6 seed to survive in three sets.
