The Montreal Masters is gr-eight

The Montreal Masters has reached the quarter-final stage and fascinatingly all top eight seeds are there to compete in four top quality matches.

Today's action promises to be thrilling and you can watch it all for free, here at William Hill via our William Hill TV service.

Andy Murray v Nikolay Davydenko

The first quarter-final of the day features Britain's own tennis star Andy Murray. The world number three has barely broken sweat so far with two easy straight-sets win and he is priced at 2/7 to beat the Russian.

Although the eighth-seed Davydenko (5/2 to win the match) should provide a much stiffer test than Murray has had so far, don't be surprised if the Scot makes it another straight-sets victory. The odds are attractive for this to happen at 8/11, as Murray bids to seal his place in the semi-finals and match his best ever Rogers Cup performance.

Roger Federer v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

The second quarter-final looks to be the most one-sided of them all as world number one Roger Federer continues his bid to win his third Rogers Cup after wins in both 2004 and 2006.

The Swiss star has a fantastic 20-5 record in Montreal and he can be backed at a short 1/8 to improve that record to 21-5. The 1/8 price looks a bit unbackable though as Feds has not dominated his previous two opponents.

Federer won his matches against Frederic Niemeyer and compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka in straight sets but both times one of the sets went to a tie-break. Therefore the 9/2 about a victory for Jo-Wilfried Tsonga could be value, but of more interest is the 5/2 about there being one tie-break yet again.

Andy Roddick v Novak Djokovic

The evening session gets under way in Montreal with the best looking quarter-final of the four, as world number five Andy Roddick plays world number four Novak Djokovic.

Despite the world rankings being in Djokovic's favour Wimbledon finalist Roddick is the 8/11 favourite to reach the semi-finals. Alternatively the Serb is available at evens, but the bet looks to be the American.

A-Rod came through a battle and a half against Fernando Verdasco yesterday, but he should still have enough left in the tank to get past Djokovic. A good bet looks to be evens about the match going to three sets, just like Roddick's affair with the Spaniard.

Juan Martin del Potro v Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal finally completed a match yesterday, as he thrashed German Philipp Petzschner, after his comeback match against fellow Spaniard David Ferrer was halted follwing Ferrer picking up an injury.

The world number two now takes on rising star Juan Martin del Potro. Rafa is the narrow favourite at 4/6 but if it was not for his recent injury troubles the Man from Majorca would be a far shorter price.

Having said that the 11/10 about a victory for the Argentine could be worth a bet as the last time the pair met, in Miami in April, Del Potro was victorious in three sets but it was his first win over Nadal.

Rafa had won the previous four meetings before that encounter and with him at such a relative big price it is too big an opportunity to miss. So Nadal to win at 4/6 is the bet.

Make sure you stay tuned in with William Hill TV all day long as a fantastic day of tennis awaits.
