The stage for the men’s quarterfinals is set at the 2010 Rogers Cup. Federer beat Michael Llodra of France in two straight sets with 7-6 and 6-3. His next match is highly anticipated as he will meet Tomas Berdych. It’s the first time that the two athletes will meet since the Wimbledon quarterfinals, where the Czech eliminated Federer in an upset.
Tomas Berdych handed Alexandr Dolgopolov a 6-3, 7-6(5), 6-4 loss in the 21-year-old's fourth appearance at an ATP World Tour competition, ending his longest run thus far in a Masters 1000 tournament.
