Madrid Open 2013 Schedule: Breaking Down Friday's Top Matchups on the Men's Side

We're only to the quarterfinals at the Madrid Open, but the remaining matches are already must-see clashes. 

I guess that tends to happen when Rafael Nadal, the best clay player in history, is only the No. 5 seed. 

The world's top two players, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, have been eliminated in the tournament's return to red clay. But with a stacked field and several players at the peak of their games, the remaining battle for the "mini French Open" title should be full of scintillating action. 

If that sounds like something you might be interested in, here's a look at the full schedule.

No. 15 Stanislas Wawrinka vs. No. 7 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Stanislas Wawrinka is on fire. 

He began this year by taking world No. 1 Novak Djokovic to the brink in an instant classic at the Australian Open and continued that momentum by destroying then-No. 2 Andy Murray, 6-1, 6-2, at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters. 

Last week, he thoroughly and clinically handled No. 4 David Ferrer in the finals of the Portugal Open.
