2010 Cincinnati Masters – Third Round Draw

Wednesday’s second round matches produced no major shocks and the third round still has the worlds top 5 players featuring. The biggest casualty of the second round was 8th seed Fernando Verdasco who has not been at his best recently he lost to American Mardy Fish.

The top hald of the third round draw sees world number 1 and 2, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer still on course for semi final meeting, with Nadal facing Julien Benneteau and Federer taking on Philipp Kohlschreiber.

The bottom half of the draw has perhaps the best match ups of the third round with 2ned seed Novak Djokovic taking on David Nalbandian and 5th seed Robin Soderling taking on home favourite Andy Roddick.

Britain’s Andy Murray will face Ernests Gulbis for a place in the quarter finals.
