This could be an interesting match-up given how easily both, Ferrer and Youzhny have made it to the third round. Both players registered straight set wins in their opening couple of matches.
Ferrer dropped eight games in disposing off Lukas Lacko in the opener before winning the second round match against Benoit Paire, 6-3, 6-3, 6-2.
The Russian did not break out into much of a sweat as he defeated American James Blake in the first round, losing two, one and two games respectively. It was a tougher match in the second, but Youzhny overcame Dutchman Robin Haase in straight sets again, 6-3, 7-6, 6-4 to make it to the round of 32.
Youzhny holds the wood over Ferrer, having won four of the six times the two have played each other. However, they haven’t faced each other since 2009 and the only time they played on clay, Ferrer won the match in straight sets – again way back in 2008.
The Ferrer v Youzhny match will be the first match on Court Suzanne Lenglen on Saturday to begin at 11 am.
