- - It's fourth seed David Ferrer, then, who is through to the last eight tomorrow and there he will face compatriot and fifth seed Rafael Nadal.
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 6-4 - GAME, SET & MATCH! Ferrer levels up at deuce when Haas misses a forehand down the line and the Spaniard goes on to earn himself a match point, running round his backhand and drilling a forehand winner down the line instead. Haas saves it with a backhand winner down the line but the Spaniard gets a second chance and this time he does reach the last eight with a forehand winner down the line that lands right smack in the corner of the court.
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 5-4 - Ferrer is now just one game away from a place in the quarter-finals as he holds to 15 with a forehand winner to leave Haas preparing to, after the change of ends, serve to stay in this match.
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 4-4 - BREAK! The crowd erupts as Ferrer fashions himself a break back point and then again when Haas sends a backhand long down the line to hand the Spaniard back the break. Back on serve in this final set.
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 3-4 - Ferrer absolutely batters a backhand winner down the line to hold and force Haas maintain his form on serve. The Spaniard is not going to let Haas have this, he will have to win it.
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 2-4 - Haas holds to 15 to consolidate his break advantage in this final set. Could Ferrer be set to follow Federer out of the tournament this evening?
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 2-3 - BREAK! A spectacular backhand passing shot threaded down the line from Haas helps him on his way to a 0-30 lead against the Ferrer serve and he goes on to fashion himself a break point with a curled forehand passing shot down the opposite line, which lands right in the corner. The chance goes begging but he quickly gets a second and this time he does break when Ferrer nets a forerhand.
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 2-2 - Ferrer is pretty frustrated with himself after missing a forehand just long and Haas leaps all over that, finding the sideline with a second serve to hold
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 2-1 - Ferrer races through a love service hold, pounding a first serve out wide that Haas can only hit long. The pressure remains on the German.
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 1-1 - Haas saves an early break point with a huge serve out wide that Ferrer can only return into the net. A sliced forehand into the net from the Spaniard on the next point hands Haas a chance to take the game, something he does quickly with a big forehand that Ferrer cannot deal with.
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 1-0 - Ferrer races through an opening service hold in this final set, dropping just the one point before holding when Haas mades a foray into the net but could not get his volley in play
- - FERRER 7-5 4-6 - SET! Haas has levelled the match, serving out the set without too much trouble to force the decider
- - FERRER 7-5 4-5 - Ferrer forces the German to serve for the set after the change of ends when Haas goes long with a forehand down the centre of the court.
- - FERRER 7-5 3-5 - Haas flicks a single-handed backhand down the line for a blistering winner after Ferrer looked to have done enough with the cross court backhand. It brings up game point for the German and he holds to consolidate the break straight away when Ferrer nets a backhand. The Spaniard will have to serve to stay in this set.
- - FERRER 7-5 3-4 - BREAK! A backhand error from Haas allows Ferrer off the hook at deuce and instead hands the Spaniard a game point. He can't quite capitalise, however, as his forehand passing shot across court catches the top of the tape and instead bounces wide. A forehand wide down the line then hands Haas the elusive break point. And sure enough he does break this time, Ferrer going long with a forehand approach shot.
- - FERRER 7-5 3-3 - Haas has a slightly easier time of it on serve as he holds to 30 without too much trouble. No aces and two double faults are not exactly helping the German's confidence on serve right now though
- - FERRER 7-5 3-2 - A much easier hold for Ferrer as he secures his serve to love with his fourth ace of the evening.
- - FERRER 7-5 2-2 - Ferrer covers absolutely acres of court as he races around the baseline before moving up inside the court a little to drill a backhand down the line to level at deuce. But he cannot quite fashion a break point and Haas holds to level up
- - FERRER 7-5 2-1 - Ferrer holds to 30 to sneak ahead once more in this set. These two have met each other three times before, by the way, with Ferrer winning all three of those encounters including a three set battle just a couple of months ago in Miami.
- - FERRER 7-5 1-1 - Haas is furious with himself after netting a forehand to end a lengthy rally and hand Ferrer two break points. He bounces his racquet off the ground in frustration before saving the first with a huge first serve that the Spaniard can only return long. Haas also saves the second with a terrific point, eventually drawing a defensive lunging forehand long from Ferrer. Danger averted, Haas holds.
- - FERRER 7-5 1-0 - Ferrer saves an early break point in this second set with an ace before going on to hold by getting away with a frame volley that Haas easily gets up to only to hit what should be an easy forehand (into the open court) into the net.
- - FERRER 7-5 - SET! Haas looks like he has the point won only for Ferrer to whip a backhand a passing shot winner across court. It brings up two set points for the Spaniard and he is quick to take advantage, keeping Haas pinned behind the baseline and drawing the forehand long from the German
- - FERRER 6-5 - A second ace from Ferrer in a hold to 15 ensures that at worst he will get the chance to take this opening set on a tie-break. Haas will serve to stay in it for a second time after the change of ends.
- - FERRER 5-5 - Haas is cruising along on serve as well, neither player is yet to face a break point, and holds when a Ferrer backhand return flies long.
- - FERRER 5-4 - Haas will have to serve to stay in this opening set after the change of ends as Ferrer holds again with ease to leave himself potentially just one game away from formalising the lead
- - FERRER 4-4 - Despite being 35, Haas is playing some of his best tennis at the moment, having won in Munich last week, and he finds a ridiculous forehand winner down the line on his way to another hold to level up.
- - FERRER 4-3 - Ferrer holds to 15 to sneak out in front once again, his best point in the game working Haas around the baseline with a series of huge forehands before racing up to the shorter, defensive ball and whipping a forehand winner across court.

Haas and Ferrer are bidding for the right to face Rafael Nadal in the last eight tomorrow and have both started strongly with the scores currently tied at 3-3 in the first set
