Finishing moments ago, Roger defeated Xavier Malisse to make the quarterfinals of the Madrid Masters. Federer had 5 aces in the straight forward 6-4 6-3 win which took just over an hour on court. Next up for the Maestro? Tsonga or Soderling, who play later today.
Novak Djokovic (@DjokerNole on Twitter) advanced to the quarterfinals as well with a easy 6-1 6-2 win over Guillermo Garcia-Lopez. The match up most fans were interested in today won’t happen because Del Potro withdrew with a hip injury so Rafa Nadal gets a walkover into the quarterfinals.
Del Potro’s hip injury puts him at risk for playing Roland Garros and rules him out of next week’s Rome Masters. Read the full story here.
