Starting the day's trend of comeback upsets, A-Muzz was able to come back from a set down to oust the resurgent TMF, 36 63 75. I haven't had a chance to see the match yet and can't comment on the play, but from all the match reports it sounds like Murray served extremely well and played aggressively, putting Fed on the run.
So tomorrow's final will be the pure counterpuncher, Gilly, vs the aggressive counterpuncher, Andy. You have to wonder how much Gilly has left in the tank. But let us not forget, Commodus is indestructable. His run here in Madrid is quite reminiscent of Dinara's run in Berlin this year.
With Fed's loss, Rafa is assured of the year-end #1 ranking. It also means Fed has yet to win a Masters shield this year, which is quite surprising. He'll have another shot (if he takes it) in Paris. It would not shock me if Fed withdraws.
