The quarterfinals of the 2013 French Open begin on Tuesday in what shapes up to be an exciting day of tennis at Roland Garros. A few of the sport's biggest stars will be in action as they vie for the championship.
Tuesday's men's singles quarterfinal will feature three top-six seeds in the tournament, including No. 2 Roger Federer. After surviving in five sets against Gilles Simon in the fourth round, Federer will face off against No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Tuesday. Tsonga cruised through his first four matches, winning each in straight sets.
The other men's quarterfinal on Tuesday will match No. 4 David Ferrer against No. 32 Tommy Robredo. The two players took very different paths to the quarterfinal. While Ferrer won each of his first four matches in straight sets, Robredo is coming off three straight five-set victories.
No. 1 Serena Williams headlines the women's quarterfinal action on Tuesday as she is set to play Svetlana Kuznetsova. Kuznetsova is unranked, but the 2009 French Open champion has been impressive thus far. Still, she will have to take her game to another level if she's going to knock off Williams who has been dominant in the French Open. Williams has dropped just 10 games in four matches, cruising to straight set victories each time.
No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska will battle No. 5 Sara Errani in the other women's quarterfinal on Tuesday. Both players have been impressive in the tournament thus far, combining to drop just one set along the way.
Tuesday's quarterfinal matches are scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. ET. Television coverage will also begin at 8 a.m. on the Tennis Channel where it will remain until 1 p.m. At that point, coverage will shift to ESPN2 from 1-7 p.m. Live online streams will also be available on ESPN3.
