The winner of this quarter-final match will then go on to play Novak Djokovic for a place in the final.

Head-to-head 8-1 Murray.
Tsonga may have been injured for most of the season after Wimbledon, but this from GulfNews.com [16 Dec] -
My pre-season training has been going well and I’ll be spending some time in the UAE before the tournament, which will give me a chance to acclimatise to the warm weather. Murray will certainly be a tough opponent but I’m looking forward to playing some competitive tennis again and can’t wait to get in front of the Abu Dhabi crowds.
