On the men's side of things, No. 2 seed Novak Djokovic defeated No. 12 Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals. Djokovic took the match in two sets, winning 6-3 and 6-2. The other quarterfinals match was between six-seed Juan Martin Del Potro and unranked Jeremy Chardy, with Del Potro winning both sets, 6-1 and 6-3. Roger Federer swept his match with Mardy Fish to advance to the semifinals.
