Roland Garros 2011 - Day 9

Match of the day in the men's draw was definitely David Ferrer against Gael Monfils with Monfils coming out victorious. He will next face Roger Federer, I wonder what the crowds will think. Nadal and Soderling both sailed easily through but Murray is tied in a deadlock with Victor Troicki with play continuing tomorrow. I only saw the first two and a bit sets so I'm not sure how Murray is playing now but he started awfully, the game is his to win or lose at the moment because in the first set he was trailing 5-0 but managed to get back to 5-4. I think Murray will win this match and he should count himself lucky to get an easy semifinal match in comparison to Nadal and Federer.

All the higher seeds in the women's draw made it through with Victoria Azarenka looking particularly dominant. She will next play Na Li in what could be a tough quarter final. Na Li beat underdog Petra Kvitova so she's gaining a lot of steam. I would much rather the Roland Garros champion come from the bottom half of the draw especially Victoria Azarenka, it would be great to see her win a Grand Slam before Caroline Wozniacki.
