    6/3/13 9:44 PM | Kelli DeMario
    Ferrer faces Robredo in French Open quarterfinal World No. 5 David Ferrer is back on court to face fellow Spaniard Tommy Robredo for a place among the final four. The players are set to contest their ninth career meeting Tuesday afternoon.

    Fourth seed David Ferrer holds a 6-2 series advantage over 32nd seed Tommy Robredo. Ferrer is 5-2 ahead of Robredo in clay-court matches contested.

    Ferrer is through to the quarterfinal after posting a routine victory against fellow seed Kevin Anderson. The 31-year-old veteran came through the round of 16 in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1, 6-1.

    "For the time being I'm just thinking about the quarterfinals," Ferrer explained. "I go about it step by step. I don't want to dream too much. I am so very happy to have reached the quarter-finals. Of course, reaching the finals here would be okay, but I wouldn't say that I would not sleep at night thinking about it, or I would sleep better. So I will try and do my best. I will try and be as steady as possible and reach the semifinals."

    Ferrer is seeking his second consecutive semifinal berth at the French Open.

    Robredo reached the final eight following his five-sets ousting of compatriot Nicolas Almagro. The former World No. 5, through to his fifth quarterfinal at Roland Garros, rallied from two sets down for the third straight match.

    "I think that being in the quarterfinals again, it's amazing, and also with three comebacks the way I did," Robredo said. "I just need to enjoy it because I think that in tennis, we need to enjoy it when we do great things and keep focused. Because if it's possible, why not? (I could be) one time in the semifinals here."

    Prediction: Ferrer in straight sets.
