Tennis – Barclays Dubai Championships 2010 – Quarter Finals
Posted on February 25, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
It was an exciting day yesterday at Dubai as many of the favorites were not able to progress to the quarter finals. The biggest surprise result came at the match between Tipsarevic and Murray as the young Serbian performed excellently on the court securing the win with 2-1 sets (7-6, 4-6, 6-4) after 2 and a half hours. Another favorite and potential winner of the tournament Nicolay Davydenko was forced to withdraw from the match against Berrer as he faced a wrist injury problem. Djokovic managed to progress to the Dubai Quarter finals after a hard fought victory over his fellow country man Troicki with 2-1 (3-6, 6-4, 6-2) sets. Ivan Ljubicic also progress to the next stage after a 2-0 sets victory over the Frenchman Tsonga.

There were some hard fought battles on the pitch yesterday with a couple of major surprises. This was an indication that as we move towards the final (Saturday 27 February) the participants will have to perform better and better in order to progress to the next day. The tournament continues today with some very interesting encounters as Ljubicic will play against Djokovic in a pair that could easily be featured in the final.
