A tournament that is also known as the gem of the Mediterranean unveils new stars as Eighth seed Milos Raonic reaches the Monte-Carlo quarter-finals for the first time. The 23-year-old Canadian will face off Australian Open champion Wawrinka.
“I’m very pleased with myself,” said Raonic. “I showed a lot of discipline. I struggled in the beginning and was able to figure it out towards the end of that set. I gave myself a lot of opportunities after. Serving well was a big thing for me today, and I think I was moving well and was able to dictate with my forehand. There’s a lot of good things I’m doing and I think I can do better so I’m looking forward to seeing how that goes.”
The favorite to win the tournament is, without a doubt Rafael Nadal whose got the best winning percentage on clay at 300-21 record (.934) and owns a 43-6 in clay finals.
