    Tipsarevic, Simon meet in round of 16 Tournament seeds Janko Tipsarevic and Gilles Simon will go head-to-head for a spot among the final eight at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters Thursday afternoon. The pair is joined in third-round action by Thomaz Bellucci, who faces Robin Haase.

    (7) Janko Tipsarevic vs. (9) Gilles Simon

    World No. 15 Gilles Simon holds a 3-0 series advantage over world No. 8 Janko Tipsarevic. The players are set to meet for the first time on clay.

    Tipsarevic moved into the third round after taking out veteran Albert Montanes in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3. The 27-year-old is bidding for his first quarterfinal at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.

    Simon cruised through his second round, having upended qualifier Frederico Gil in straight sets, 6-3, 6-0. The Frenchman looks to reach his maiden quarterfinal at the tournament on Thursday.

    Thomaz Bellucci vs. Robin Haase

    World No. 45 Thomaz Bellucci secured a third-round berth after upsetting 2011 finalist David Ferrer in straight sets. The Brazilian needed just 69 minutes to oust the Spaniard, 6-3, 6-2. He remains on track to make his first quarterfinal in Monte-Carlo.

    World No. 55 Robin Haase passed into the round of 16 with the retirement of 11th seed Juan Monaco. The players were 2-3 in the final set when the Houston champion suffered a right-ankle injury.

    The Dutchman will attempt to book his first tour-level quarterfinal since Zagreb.
