Quarter-final action at the ATP Dubai 2013 will see Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer take court on Thursday.
Fourth seeded Juan Martin del Potro, who recorded a straight set win over Somdev Devvarman will now take on German qualifier Daniel Brands for his last-eight clash. Brands lost eight games in his straight-set upset win against eighth seeded Mikhail Youzhny in the second round.
Following del Potro on court will be the third seeded Tomas Berdych who takes on wild-card entrant Dmitry Tursunov of Russia. Tursunov defeated Michael Llodra in his previous round action in a tough three-setter while Berdych had a much easier time of it against Tobias Kamke.
Djokovic and Federer will be the two players to watch out and they will be out on court for their quarter-finals in the evening session. Djokovic did not take in his second round win over Roberto Bautista-Agut and will now play seventh seeded Andreas Seppi of Italy. Seppi sent out Lukas Rosol in another second round match.
