Potito Starace set up a Tuesday night meeting with Roger Federer by coming from one set to claim a fine 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 against Radek Stepanek. The Italian wildcard delighted his home crowd with the win and will now face the showdown with the second seed as reward for his efforts. The all-home clash between Fabio Fognini and Andreas Seppi disappointed though with Seppi struggling in the second set and Fognini emerging 6-4, 6-1 winner. There was just the one upset of seeds in men’s competition as Philipp Kohlschreiber’s impressive serving helped get the better of Milos Raonic in straight sets.
