Tuesdays order of play at the Sony Ericsson Open was dominated by the mens fourth round and the tennishead snapper was charging around the Key Biscayne complex capturing it all on his gigantic memory card.

Eight mens matches were scheduled with the fourth round featuring one of the highest quality line-ups the event has ever seen.

For the first time in the tournaments 25-year history all 11 of the mens top seeds made it into the last 16 and when they got there a couple of them posted some sizzling performances on a boiling hot south Florida day.

Top seed Rafael Nadal, second seed Roger Federer, third seed Novak Djokovic and numbr four seed Andy Murray all made it into the last eight in straight sets.

They were joined by fifth seed Andy Roddick, Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Juan Martin Del Potro and Fernando Verdasco.

It was quarter-finals day in the bottom half of the womens draw and the first two players into the semis are Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova and in-form Belarussian Victoria Azarenka after both won on Tuesday.
