    Winston-Salem - Tsonga, Isner closing in on semifinal Top seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga looks to secure a spot among the final four at the Winston-Salem Open, as he takes on 6th seed Marcel Granollers. Defending champion John Isner is set for a late quarterfinal meeting with Belgium’s David Goffin.

    (1) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. (6) Marcel Granollers

    World No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga holds a 1-0 series edge against world No. 25 Marcel Granollers, having won their only previous meeting at the 2008 Masters Series Madrid.

    Tsonga advanced to the final eight after defeating qualifier Sergiy Stakhovsky in straight sets. The 27-year-old Frenchman held 10 of 11 service games en route to a 7-6(1), 6-4 victory in 95 minutes. Tsonga is seeking his fourth semifinal of the season.

    Granollers is through to the quarterfinal following his come-from-behind win over qualifier Ernests Gulbis. The 26-year-old Barcelona native is bidding for his first hard-court semifinal in 2012.

    (3) John Isner vs. David Goffin

    World No. 10 John Isner made the last eight by virtue of his 6-4, 6-3 victory over 13th seed Jurgen Melzer. The defending champion tallied 14 aces through to a third-round win in an hour and 11 minutes. Isner looks to reach his fifth hard-court semifinal of the season.

    World No. 58 David Goffin survived a tricky third-round match with veteran Lukasz Kubot, 6-3, 1-6, 7-6(5). The 21-year-old Belgian remains on course to make his first tour-level semi in 2012.
