First Gonzo at AO, now Jo. It seems Rafa's going all Kill Bill on the ATP, taking hard court revenge left and right. Rafa gutted out a tough three set win over Jo, 64 67(5) 64, to reach the semis in Rotterdam. Next up, La Monf and a chance to avenge his loss in Doha earlier this year.
Perhaps avenging his loss to Muzz at the USO is on the agenda too? You might want to put some padding around your heart area, Muzz. Rafa's a comin'.
The other semi sees Better Than Average Mario against Muzz, who has quietly made his way through this tournament. For some reason he was tested today by Gicquel, eventually winning due to the a left groin injury sustained by Gicquel in the third. This was tough one that really could have gone against Andy, but he found his way through, winning 76(2) 46 30.
OOP for Saturday:
1. Mario vs. Muzz (2:00pm)
2. Rafa vs. La Monf (7:30pm)
