Novak Djokovic v Tommy Haas Live
Top seeded Novak Djokovic will be up against 12th seeded Tommy Haas of Germany in the quarter-final at the French Open 2013 on Wednesday.
Djokovic has been in fine form this tournament so far and while he did drop a set against another German player Philipp Kohlschreiber, it will be difficult to see him lose his way yet against Haas.
Earlier in the tournament, Djokovic has run over many an opponent including Grigor Dimitrov, Guido Pella and David Goffin - all of them without dropping a single set.
Not that things will get any easier and that’s to do with Djokovic’s record against Haas. Given that Haas is outside the top 10, it would be easy to assume that the Serbian would have had an excellent record against him. Not quite - he has won six and lost three of their nine matches played.
What could make it more difficult for the top seed is that in their previous meeting, Haas was a straight set winner at the Miami Masters on hard court. The only previous time they played on clay was way back in 2006 in this tournament and Djokovic had won with quite an ease.
Djokovic should run away with the match here.
