The Monte-Carlo Masters 2013 quarter-finals will have Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in action on Friday.
First up on centre court will be sixth seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga who takes on the 13th seeded Stanislas Wawrinka in their quarter-final. While Tsonga easily beat Jurgen Melzer in his previous match, Wawrinka created the upset of the tournament by overpowering second seeded Andy Murray.
Wawrinka crushed the second seeded Brit 6-1, 6-2 to make it to the last eight.
Following this the third seeded Rafael Nadal takes court for his quarter-final against the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov. Neither player had much difficulty winning their respective third round matches, with Nadal defeating Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-2, 6-4 and Dimitrov brushing aside Florian Mayer by an identical scoreline.
Fabio Fognini was involved in the second major upset of the tournament when he beat the fourth seeded Tomas Berdych in the previous round 6-4, 6-2. He will now look to repeat that against the seventh seeded Richard Gasquet of France who overcame Marin Cilic in round three action.
In the last singles quarter-final action, top seeded Novak Djokovic will be up against Jarkko Nieminen. Djokovic hasn't been in the best of form this tournament so far and dropped the first set again to Juan Monaco in the third round before mounting a comeback. Earlier he was stretched to three sets by Mikhail Youzhny in the second round.
Nieminen defeated fifth seeded Juan Martin del Potro in a very tough battle that saw the two players share the first couple of sets before needing a tie-breaker to decide the final one.
