Rogers Cup: Quarter-Final preview

It is Quarter-final time at the Rogers Cup where top seeds like Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Kei Nishikori and Rafael Nadal have booked their place. Tsonga who is the defending champion will face the Brit Andy Murray in the Quarters.

Day 4 featured all the top seeds in action and there is no major upsets as all of them are safely through to the quarters.

Novak Djokovic will take on Ernests Gulbis which will be the second quarter final clash. The form of the world no.1 shown during the course of 2015 is immense and he will be the firm favourite to go through the semis. The third Quarter final will feature the Spaniard Rafael Nadal taking on the Japanese Kei Nishikori. Although Nadal has a 100% winning record against the Japanese his form throughout the 2015 has been poor and Kei will be looking to take down the Spaniard. However for Nadal he has to be aggressive from the start and can’t afford to make many unforced errors in order to stand a chance against the Japanese.

The fourth and last quarter final will feature the Brit Andy Murray taking on the defending champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Tsonga hasn’t been in that great form in the 2015 season but can take down any opponent on his day and Murray would be aware of that. Murray before the start of Rogers cup suffered a shock exit in the Washington Open and can’t take the Frenchmen lightly in his quarter-final clash.

The first quarter final will feature John Isner taking on Jeremy Chardy and it can turn out to be a competitive clash and it’s hard to predict the winner of this match.

N Djokovic def. J Sock 6-2, 6-1
