And then there were 16. Just eight men and eight women are left in the singles of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia with quarter-final action underway on Friday in both the ATP and WTA draws.
It is the evening schedule that will have mouth’s watering. Maria Sharapova takes on Victoria Azarenka before fourth seed Rafael Nadal takes on eighth seed Stanislas Wawrinka.
Elsewhere in the men’s draw, David Goffin v David Ferrer is at midday local time on Grandstand Court with Tomas Berdych v Roger Federer on Centre at 2pm which is followed by top seed Novak Djokovic against Kei Nishikori, which promises to be a fascinating contest.
Qualifier Alexandra Dulgheru will look to pull off an upset against Simona Halep first on Centre while Petra Kvitova is in action against Carla Suarez Navarro on Grandstand followed by the all qualifier match between Christina McHale and Daria Gavrilova.
