It wasn't an easy day for the #1 and #3 seed, but in the end they survived their upstart challengers. JJ needed three sets to take care of the Bronzed Bepa, 64 26 64. Sveta ground out a tough two setter over Zheng Jie, 76(3) 75.
Dudi Sela continued his magnificent run to his first ATP final, beating Rainer Schuettler in straight sets, 63 63. He'll face A-Rod, who needed 3 sets to dispatch of the pesky Bjorn Phau, 62 67(4) 61.
And over in Thailand it'll be a rematch of the 2008 AO Final, as Nole and Jo kept to the script and pounded their semifinal opponents on the way to the final.
Jo handed fellow pastry, LaMonf, a bagel on his way to a 60 63 win, and Nole took out Big Berd 75 61.
