This week’s ATP and WTA Tennis action at Eastbourne and Antalya is now down to the quarter finals and semi-final stages. On the ATP Tour at Eastbourne top-seed Djokovic has made the semi-finals and will face the unseeded NextGen young Russian Medvedev who reached the quarter finals at 's-Hertogenbosch and Queens and now the semi-finals with impressive wins against fourth seed Johnson and fifth seed Querrey.
Seventh seed Richard Gasquet (advised 14/1) will face compatriot and second seed Monfils in the other semi-final and its sure to be a close one as the head-to-head stands at 8-7 to Monfils, but Gasquet won their last meeting on grass at Halle this year 3-6 6-4 6-3. At Antalya the action has reached the semi-final stage and with all the seeds eliminated it’s left to a couple of unseeded veterans Baghdatis and Seppi and a couple of younger players Mannarino and Sugita to fight it out for the title.
Today Baghdatis faces Sugita for the first time, Seppi faces Mannarino for the sixth time and Seppi leads the head-to-head 3-2. On grass the head-to-head is 1-1 as they met twice last year at 's-Hertogenbosch and Nottingham. On the WTA at Eastbourne they had to play in to late last night to try and get the schedule back on track. Britain’s Johanna Konta is going well this week and will now face third seed Pliskova or seventh seed Kuznetova in the semi-finals. Second seed Halep lost against sixth seed Wozniaki yesterday and the Dane will now face Britain’s Heather Watson in today’s other the semi-final as she defeated Strycova last night.
