It's time for the French to avenge their knocked-out compatriots! Virginie Razzano will be seeking revenge for Marion Bartoli's defeat as she faces the Italian Tathiana Garbin and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will meet the Belgian Christophe Rochus, who defeated French stars Arnaud Clement and Fabrice Santoro. Favourite of the Philippe Chatrier court, Gael Monfils, will have the opportunity to avenge the honour of Guillaume Rufin against Austrian Jurgen Melzer. Marc Gicquel will face Andy Roddick, who beat Romain Jouan.

 

No vengeance for Paul-Henri Mathieu - just one hell of a challenge up against Roger Federer. Things may be easier for Jeremy Chardy, facing the German Tommy Haas.

 

At the head of series, Elena Demienteva (ranked four) will play against Australia's Samantha Stosur. Jelena Jankovic (5) will meet another Australian, Jarmila Groth. Serena Williams (2), whose sister Venus is out of the competition, will face the Spaniard Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez.

 

On the men's side, the Serb Novak Djokovic (4) will play his quarter-final against the German Philipp Kohlschreiber. Finally, Juan Martin Del Potro (5) will be on court number 2 facing Igor Andreev (25).
