The other quarter final to be played on Tuesday will be between 10th seed Nikolay and Rafael Nadal’s conqueror 23rd seed Robin Soderling. Soderling holds a 3-2 advantage over Davydenko which includes wins in their last two meetings and their two meetings on clay.

On Wednesday 5th seed Juan Martin Del Potro takes on the last remaining Spaniard 16th seed Tommy Robredo. Del Potro was the winner in their only other encounter.

The last match to be played is surely the most intriguing – home favorite Frenchman 11th seed Gael Monfils takes the world number 2, Roger Federer in a repeat of last years semi final. Monfils has never beaten Roger Federer in 4 attempts though he pushed the 13 time grand slam champion close in their last meeting 12 months ago Monfils eventually losing 6-2 5-7 6-3 7-5. Fed’s form has been shaky so far, will he step up his game in the second week.
