Rafael Nadal will face off against a familiar foe in eighth-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka, the remaining Swiss citizen in the draw. Wawrinka ended the hopes of 10th-seeded Milos Raonic of Canada moving into the quarterfinals in a 7-6 (2), 6-4 round-of-16 win. On paper, playing Wawrinka shouldn’t be a problem for Nadal, who not only has won all ten matches they’ve played, but also won all 22 sets they’ve played, but they are not playing on paper and anything could happen. GOOD LUCK RAFA!
