ATP Stuttgart: Baghdatis v Kohlschreiber (12:30)

Baghdatis leads their previous meetings 5-2. They last met in March 2014 on a  hard court in Miami. Baghdatis won in a third set tie break. Baghdatis won both their grass matches though the last one was in 2007.

Baghdatis started the year well as he usually does and reached  the semi finals in Auckland but since then his form has been poor.

Kohlschreiber needs a good start as he tries to defend final ranking points

Kohlschreiber has had a few decent weeks this season but has been below his best. He reached the third round at the Australian Open, quarter finals in Dubai and the final on clay in Marrakech.

Baghdatis has better grass results in the last 12 months and if his recent form had been better then I would give him a chance here. However  Kohlschreiber is at home and reached the final last year and the quarter final in 2015.

Back Kohlschreiber if he gets broken.
