The only French player of the day, Aravane Rezai, will have to gather all her strength to face Dinara Safina. The Russian has her eye on a Grand Slam and has played almost flawlessly, having lost only four games in four matches.

 

Maria Sharapova, who qualified for a third round after winning three sets against Kazakhstan’s Yaroslava Shvedova, will now face China’s Na Li (ranked 28) in the pre-quarter finals. In what's hotting up to be an exciting match on the Suzanne Lenglen court, last year's Open winner Ana Ivanovic (8) faces Victoria Azarenka from Belarus (9).

 
On the men’s side, the man who took down Josselin Ouanna, the Chilean Fernando Gonzalez, faces Romania’s Victor Hanescu, who eliminated Gilles Simon in the last round. Another pre-quarter final awaits the mighty Nadal against Robin Soderling, who beat David Ferrer in the last round. Finally, Scotsman Andy Murray (3) faces Croatia’s Marin Cilic (13).
