it's down to quarterfinals

Finally we are at the quarterfinals at Roland Garros. Below are the surviving 16 players (men and women).

Men's singles
Roger Federer vs V. Hanescu
Rafael Nadal vs. David Ferrer
Nikolay Davydenko vs. T. Robredo
G. Canas vs. M. Puerta

Women's singles
Lindsay Davenport vs. Mary Pierce
E. Likhovtseva vs. S. Karatantcheva
N. Petrova vs. Ana Ivanovic
Justine Henin-Hardenne vs. Maria Sharapova

Federer and Rafa are definitely going to meet in the semifinal. They are at their top forms and I don't think Hanescu and Ferrer will be able to compete with them. I would love to see Nadal win. This is his first time at Roland Garros and there is nothing better than to see him winning all the clay court matches this year.

On the women's singles, Davenport is definitely the favourite although Pierce has her homeground fans backing her up in the quarterfinal. Although I'm a fan of Sharapova, I'm not sure if she's going to outplay Justine. Justine is a good player and it's not going to be easy for Sharapova.
