We are down to the quarterfinals at the 2014 Barcelona Open. Rafael Nadal is looking to win his fourth title in a row here and ninth title in Barcelona overall.
His toughest competition went down early.
After taking out Nadal in Monte Carlo, second-seeded David Ferrer was upset by Teymuraz Gabashvili in his first match. The Russian has carried this momentum into the quarterfinals.
Third-seeded Fabio Fognini also lost in the first round. He retired down 6-0, 4-0 against Santiago Giraldo.
However, plenty of tricky opponents are still standing in the way of Nadal's quest for a ninth title in Barcelona.
Let's take a look at the quarterfinal matchups.
