Last updated 20 August at 10:00pm in Cincinnati. See the latest results below…

The 2010 Cincinnati Open men’s main draw singles round of 16 matches are now complete. There are 6 seeds still alive in the draw including the Top 4 seeds, plus one direct acceptance and one wild card. Former champion Andy Roddick and past runner-up Mardy Fish are the two Americans who are in contention to win this major tournament on their home soil.

OCA will keep you updated with all of the quarter final results as matches are completed, right here on this post. The matches numbered from No.1 and No.2 in the draw below are the matches from the top half of the draw, whilst matches No.3 and No.4 are the matches from the bottom half of the draw. All 4 matches are scheduled for today, after which the 4 semi finalists will be decided. All of these matches will be played on just 1 court, the Stadium Court.

Last week at the Rogers Cup in Toronto all 4 of the Top seeds made it through to the semi finals for the first time in the history of that event. With so many matches last week and by winning through to the quarter finals here in Cincinnati, Nadal, Federer, Djokovic and Murray will be no where near as fresh as their lower ranked opponents. The quarter finals should be fantastic, make sure you watch in case we see some major upsets.

The player’s name that is bolded in the quarter singles draw below is OCA’s prediction of who will win each match. Any player whose name is italicised and has his first name removed is a seeded player who was expected to win through to the quarter finals.

The 2010 Cincinnati Open quarter final draw is:

  1. (1) Rafael Nadal versus Marcos Baghdatis (7) Berdych
  2. (3) Roger Federer v. (6) Nikolay Davydenko
  3. (4) Andy Murray v. (WC) Mardy Fish (8) Verdasco
  4. (9) Andy Roddick v. (2) Novak Djokovic
