    Ferrer, Raonic take the court in Barcelona on Thursday David Ferrer and Canadian Milos Raonic will be in action as the remaining field takes the court in the round of 16.

    David Ferrer (3) vs. Albert Montanes

    This has proven to be a good match-up for David Ferrer. Each encounter he’s had with countryman Albert Montanes has resulted in an easy straight-set victory, including a 6-1, 6-1 demolition in their last meeting in Buenos Aires back in 2010.

    Ferrer hasn’t been at his best. The Spaniard lost in the second round in an uninspired match against Thomaz Bellucci in Monte Carlo. But Ferrer is playing at home this time against a familiar opponent.

    Montanes hasn’t had a great season. The world No. 69 has a losing record on the season, with his two wins this week, he sits at 5-8 for the year.

    Prediction – Ferrer in straight sets.

    Milos Raonic (11) vs. Nicolas Almagro (6)

    Canadian Milos Raonic had an excellent day at the office in his second round match against Igor Andreev. Raonic’s serve saw him to an impressive 6-4, 6-1 victory over the Russian.

    His third round opponent is Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, who is in shaky form right now. Almagro lost to Stanislas Wawrinka in the third round in Monte Carlo. Still, the Spaniard is playing for the home crowd and should put on a good show for his countrymen.

    Prediction – If Raonic serves as well as he did against Andreev, Almagro could find himself the victim of another early exit.
