World No. 3 Maria Sharapova and Australian star Samantha Stosur will clash in the 2013 Qatar Open quarter final on Friday 15th February, schedule to kick off at 17:00 GMT at the International Tennis and Squash complex in Doha.

Four-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova has conquered Klara Zakopalova of Czech Republic in fourth round in two sets with a 6-3, 6-3 score line and defeated Caroline Garcia in consecutive sets with a 6-3, 6-2 in opening round. Russian beauty is eyeing to clinch the first WTA title here in Qatar Open this week.
Sharapova is one of the top prospects to clinch the 2013 Qatar Open, where she needs to face tough battle against Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka for title race. Samantha Stosur has been playing consistent tennis in 2013 season and reached Qatar Open quarters after beating Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova in straight sets with a 6-4, 7-5.

Both the players are meeting for the 13th time in their tennis career, where Sharapova leads with a 11-2 win loss head-to-head record against Stosur. The pair last meet at the 2012 Istanbul WTA Championships and Russian star clinches victory in two sets with a 6-0, 6-3 scores line. As per the predictions, Sharapova is having little edge to clinch victory in quarter finals and secure place in the 2013 Qatar Open semi finals.
