We're a couple days in and the quarterfinals are set for the SAP Open, and are set to begin on Friday. It's been eventful thus far, with Gael Monfils being forced to withdraw due to a knee injury the biggest news. Monfils was the No. 1 seed and was clearly favored, especially with Andy Roddick coming off a big injury. Speaking of Roddick, he's in the quarterfinals, successfully coming back from his Australian Open injury to win and advance.
Sam Querrey failed to get back to his winning ways in regards to singles competition, and the Bay Area native further struggles with his career. Other big news is the fact that Radek Stepanek is not making it to the quarterfinals, losing in straight tiebreaker sets to Steve Darcis on Thursday.
This means Milos Raonic and Andy Roddick are the two highest seeds left, though the former does have a tough matchup in the quarterfinals as he's set to take on Kevin Anderson of Russia. Roddick will look to keep himself plenty healthy as he takes on Denis Istomin.
On Friday, Dimitar Kutrovsky will take on Ryan Harrison, and then Raonic wil ltake on Anderson. Later, Istomin will take on Roddick, and Julien Benneteau will face Darcis, who is coming off his strong victory over Stepanek. Things wrap up on Feb. 19, so now is the time to tune in for some good tennis. The quarterfinals are below:
Dimitar Kutrovsky vs Ryan Harrison
Milos Raonic vs Kevin Anderson
Julien Benneteau vs Steve Darcis
Denis Istomin vs Andy Roddick
