Updated: February 3, 2015

88th ranked Japanese will take on 46th ranked Serbian Viktor Troicki in the second round of the 2015 Zagreb tournament.  While Soeda cruised past his first round opponent in straight sets , the Serbian had to rally past Illya Marchenko in three tightly contested sets 4-6 7-6 7-6.  Soeda and Troicki will meet for the second time in their careers as they previously went head to head in 2007 at the Busan Challenger where the Serbian picked up the victory in three sets 6-2 2-6 6-1.

The result may be no different as Troicki is in great form as he has won 11 of his last 12 matches on hard surface and recently won the title at the 2015 Sydney event.  On the other hand, Soeda has not played as many matches on the surface this season and has been bounced early in both tournaments he has appeared in this year.  The Serbian should be able cruise past the Japanese and move on to the third round.

Prediction:  7-5 6-3 in favor of Victor Troicki
