Tournament favourite Rafael Nadal will go up against N0.5 seed Alexander Zverev after the German star dispatched British No.1 Dan Evans in the last round.

Nadal has enjoyed a straightforward run against two unseeded opponents in the opening two rounds to reach the final eight, but knows he’ll need to up his game against such a stern opponent.

Elsewhere, unseeded John Isner’s reward for defeating No.6 seed Andrey Rublev in a sapping 7-6 3-6 7-6 encounter is a clash with No.3 Dominic Thiem, who appears to be Nadal’s closest contender on clay.

Alexander Bublik and Casper Ruud meet at the Manolo Santana court before No.8 Matteo Berrettini and Cristian Garin see out the day’s play.
