    Melzer, Kamke set for rematch in Casablanca Jurgen Melzer faces a rematch with Tobias Kamke on Tuesday in Casablanca. The winner will go up against Tommy Robredo.

    Jurgen Melzer and Tobias Kamke will be going head-to-head for the second time in their careers and for the second time in less than three weeks when they clash in round one of the Grand Prix Hassan II on Tuesday. They faced each other in the Miami third round with a wide-open draw in their future, with Melzer prevailing 6-7, 6-3, 6-4 on his way to the quarterfinals.

    Kamke's baseline game should have a decent chance of withstanding Melzer's relative power on a clay court, but the German has been mostly dismal on the slow stuff throughout his career. He plays sparingly on the surface and his only such match of 2013 was a straight-set loss to Juan Monaco in a dead Davis Cup rubber. Overall, Kamke is 5-7 at the ATP level for the season.

    Melzer, ranked 45 spots ahead of his opponent at No. 37 in the world, is a former semifinalist at Roland Garros (2010). The fifth-seeded Austrian started this year slow, but he won the Dallas Challenger prior to his impressive showing at the Sony Open.

    Kamke will be itching for revenge, but Melzer likely has too much experience on clay. The 31-year-old may not be able to dictate play as much as he would like with his serve and backhand, but he should be consistent enough to hold off the underdog in three sets.
