Houston QF : Wayne Odesnik def Roitman 2-6 7-6(4) 6-1 to make 1st ATP semi final

Congrats to Odesnik for making his first semi final on the ATP tour and for saving a match point.

Odesnik was up a break in the 2nd set, then lost his serve twice. There were 4 successive breaks and Roitman served for the match twice at 5-4 lost to to 0 and at 6-5.

Roitman took an injury timeout at 2-0 in the 3rd, not sure what for. They can't treat choking and not closing out matches as an injury.

Odesnik he isn't spectacular at all, he is making the most of what he has and now he should be inside the top 100 with this win.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Houston QF: Odesnik def. Roitmug 2-6, 7-6(4), 6-1

Roitman

The second set was funny. Odesnik got up an early break in it, Roitman comes back to serve for the match twice at *5-4 and *6-5. He obviously failed on both occasions and subsequently dropped the tiebreak and the third set. For Roitman, Odesnik is to Houston 2008 as Massu is to Vina del Mar 2007. At least he finished the match this time though.

It's no surprise Odesnik can well play on clay, he did so before in challengers. Great result for him.

I've also noticed Odesnik has a great record winning three set matches after losing the first set, seems he often starts slow.

He will run all day, doesn't mind having to grind out victories.

He will either play Daniel or Granollers-Pujol in the semis.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

You do know Odesnik can actually play on clay. Roitman should have won this, but it's not like he hasn't choked before.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Great fight from Odesnik, but nothing surprising. Wayne will run and grind as much as he has to, to dig out the win. It's due time for him to make his first ATP final in Houston, since clay should be his best surface. I'm a bit disappointed in Escopeta, losing matches from a winning position is something he's become all too familiar with.

He is around 15th alternate for RG, this event come one week to late for him. It looks like he will have to go through the qualies.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wayne! Yay, I'll see him on Tennis Channel tomorrow!

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
