    Del Potro, Gasquet collide in Marseille quarterfinal Fourth seed Juan Martin Del Potro is set to highlight Friday evening play, as he battles fellow seed Richard Gasquet for a spot in the semifinal. Top seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will kick off quarterfinal action against Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

    (1) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. Edouard Roger-Vasselin

    World No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga leads quarterfinal opponent Edouard Roger-Vasselin 1-0 in the head-to-head series. Friday signals their first meeting since 2005.

    Tsonga made the quarterfinals by virtue of his 6-3, 6-2 ousting of fellow Frenchman Nicolas Mahut. The former champion is bidding for his second semifinal berth of the season.

    Roger-Vasselin advanced to the final eight after downing Flavio Cipolla in straight sets, 6-3, 6-0. The 28-year-old looks to reach his first semifinal in Marseille.

    Prediction: Tsonga in straight sets.

    Del Potro played an abbreviated second round, where he rallied to level the match against former world No. 3 Nikolay Davydenko. After drawing to a set apiece, the Russian called it a day with a right foot injury.

    The Argentine will attempt to make his second semifinal of the season on Friday.

    Gasquet passed into the quarterfinals after taking out Igor Kunitsyn in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2. The 5th seed remains on track to book his first semifinal of the year.
