The tennis could not have been much better on the men's side Tuesday. A great day of action all around. I expect more of the same with the rest of the quarterfinals.

I did pick three of the four right on Tuesday, bringing my totals to 58-18 for the tournament. Now here's my look at Wednesday's matches.


No. 2 Maria Sharapova vs. No. 23 Kaia Kanepi: Sharapova is coming off a sluggish three-set win. Kanepi has looked pretty strong throughout the tournament. Kanepi has a big serve that could cause Sharapova some problems. The two have never met before. I think experience will prove the difference in this one. 

Winner: Sharapova in three sets


No. 4 Petra Kvitova vs. Yaroslava Shvedova: Kvitova has been playing some great tennis again in this tournament. It might be the best she's played all year, which makes her very dangerous as we move forward in the tournament. Moving forward is exactly what she will do on Wednesday.

Winner: Kvitova in two sets


No. 4 Andy Murray vs. No. 6 David Ferrer: Murray keeps finding a way to win. Ferrer hasn't dropped a set during the tournament. I think Murray's lack of play, and a bad back will finally catch up to him in this match.

Winner: Ferrer in four sets


No. 2 Rafael Nadal vs. No. 12 Nicolas Almagro: Almagro is a solid clay-court player. He's had a strong tournament. However, he's now playing Nadal. In other words, take a seat Almagro, your tournament is over. Nadal will win in dominating fashion once again.

Winner: Nadal in three sets
