Today at the French Open

, special correspondent at the French Open – Today’s French Open programme.


Wednesday is rematch day for “La Monf”, Gaël Monfils. He faces Roger Federer, who eliminated him in the semi-finals last year, on the Philippe Chatrier court.

Federer has been having a rather difficult French Open this year. In his fourth round match, conceded the first two sets to Tommy Haas before coming back to win.

Argentinian Juan Martin del Potro, who beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the last round, faces the last — and least celebrated — of the Spaniards still holding out at this year’s open, Tommy Robredo.

On the women’s side, Romanian Sorana Cristea, the only player not classified in the quarter-finals, will meet up with Australia’s Samantha Stosur, ranked 30th in the world.

American Serena Williams will take on Svetlana Kuznetsova, who occupies the world-ranked fifth spot.
