Rafael Nadal will be out to press his claims for a seventh French Open crown when he squares off with Spanish compatriot Nicolas Almagro on Wednesday night (AEST). Nadal easily despatched Argentine Eduardo Schwank in straight sets in his fourth round match to progress to his third consecutive French Open quarter final. Nadal hasn’t been defeated at the French Open since bowing out in round four of the 2009 tournament. Almagro has been impressive on his way to the quarters defeating impressive Argentine Leonardo Mayer in straight sets.
In Wednesday’s other match Britain’s Andy Murray faces Spain’s David Ferrer . Murray reached the semi-finals of last year’s tournament and will be hoping to continue his impressive start to the 2012 season after reaching the semi-finals of the Australian Open.
