Day 10 of the U.S. Open will feature some exciting matches with some of the best players in tennis on Wednesday.

No. 2 Rafael Nadal will be looking to advance in his quarterfinal match against Tommy Robredo, as Nadal continues his march to the U.S. Open men's final. Also on the men's side, No. 4 David Ferrer will take on No. 8 Richard Gasquet in what should be the most competitive match of the day.

On the women's side, Victoria Azarenka looks to recover from a scare on Day 9, as she battles Daniela Hantuchova while No. 10 Roberta Vinci will seek to stave off a loss to fellow Italian Flavia Pennetta.

Let's take a closer look at where and when to watch these matches, as well as which ones are a must-see.

Must-See Matchups


Victoria Azarenka vs. Daniela Hantuchova

Azarenka barely escaped her fourth-round matchup with No. 13 Ana Ivanovic and now has to recover in time to play her second match in two days against Hantuchova.

In the pair's previous four meetings, Azarenka and Hantuchova have won two matches apiece, but the edge in the fatigue department goes to Hantuchova after she had an extra day off thanks to bad weather.

Azarenka must clean up her act quickly, otherwise she may find herself bounced from this tournament early against Hantuchova. This is one you don't want to miss because there's a strong chance for an upset.


Richard Gasquet vs. David Ferrer

This should be one of the most even matches of the day, as both Gasquet and Ferrer are extremely close in the tourney rankings.

Although you wouldn't know it when looking at their head-to-head history. Ferrer has dominated Gasquet in the past, going 8-1 in their nine meetings. Ferrer beat Gasquet in straight sets at the 2012 U.S. Open, although each set was highly contested.

Still, this match features two of the more well-known names in the game today and should be competitive regardless.


Rafael Nadal vs. Tommy Robredo

Nadal is a perfect 6-0 against his Spanish countryman, but Robredo is no stranger to ending winless streaks against great players. After all, Roger Federer had won the pair's first 10 meetings before Robredo bounced him from this tourney.

The same won't happen this time. Nadal is playing at a far higher level than Federer and won't afford Robredo extra points by making the astounding amount of mistakes that Federer did.

The only thing working for Robredo is that Nadal was tested a bit by German Philipp Kohlschreiber, but that's hardly something that will turn the tide of this match.
