• Tomic, Cilic in first day action at Madrid Masters

    5/5/13 4:40 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Tomic, Cilic in first day action at Madrid Masters Bernard Tomic and No. 10 seed Marin Cilic will be in action in Madrid as the tournament gets a Sunday start.

    Bernard Tomic vs. Radek Stepanek

    As luck would have it, this meeting is an exact replica of last year's first-round match in Madrid for Aussie Bernard Tomic and Radek Stepanek.

    Their rankings couldn't be closer. Stepanek is No. 48 in the world, Tomic No. 49. The Czech won last year's encounter in straight sets and will be favored to do so again.

    The high altitude in Madrid coupled with the relatively quick clay favors Stepanek's fast-paced game. In addition, Tomic hasn't been playing very well during the clay season. He had a pair of Davis Cup wins over Uzbekistan, but the regular clay season netted just one win for the Aussie.

    Prediction - Stepanek in straight sets.

    Marin Cilic (10) vs. Pablo Andujar

    Croat Marin Cilic comes into Munich off a disappointing showing in Munich, losing to Ivan Dodig in the second round. Pablo Andujar has had disappointing results all season, with his ranking dipping to No. 92 in the world from a career high 33 back in the fall of last year.

    Andujar would ordinarily have at least some edge in this matchup, but the Spaniard has been playing poorly enough that Cilic should have little difficulty dispatching him.

    Prediction - Cilic in straight sets.
