Nicolas Kiefer def. Gilles Simon 6-7(4) 6-3 7-6(5) to reach Toronto final

Great match from both, and very entertaining. Kiefer, who served for the first set at *5-4 and was break up at the third set, used a lot of drop shots, which were very useful.

Nice stuff from Colin, despite the choking.

There was some good stuff in there, but I have to think Kiefer should have got through that a lot more easily that he did.

Clearly Simon was knackered.

Shocking to see gutsy play under pressure from Nick. Great result for Kiefer and makes up for his loooong title drought.

Best result of the week.

Kiefer really crawled over the finish line. Thought he'd never get there. Pleased he won, though. He was the better player.

I'm really happy for him. Not as impressive today as against Blake, but good enough First MS final well-deserved, some great tennis on the path

Clearly Simond was dead tired, but good enough play from Kiefer, good luck in the final.

Nice last point by the way.
