SA Open SF: Chardy def. Ferrer 1-6 7-6(9) 7-6(4)

Did I get the tiebreak scores correct?

Didn't see the first set but apparently Chardy was pretty weak.

The second and third sets were entertaining though, with winners from both players, good serving (from Pics as well), nice approaches and volleys from Chardy and excuisite passing shots from Ferrer. Chardy cramped in the end of the 3rd set tiebreak.

Haven't seen Chardy play before, he has a nice game. A bit unorthodox technique on the forehand and serve but still both are very effective. Hope to see much more of him.

Good luck in the final!

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Great comeback from Chardy. Hit outstanding aces in the 3th tie break.

Now through to the final! Allez Jeremy!

SA Open SFs - Chardy def. Ferrer 1-6, 7-6 (9), 7-6(4).

Fabulous win Jeremy! He saved 2 MPs in the second set tie-break i think! I was afraid he'd fall apart at 4-5, 15-30 in the last set but he held! Probably his second best win ever, and if he plays this well again and Tsonga plays dodgy then he can win the whole tournament! Ugh, im so happy, he deserves a great year.

3 aces in the last tie break.

Don't know if he is the real deal but he is a very good player ,that's for sure.
I saw him play against Djokovic in AO this year and he impressed me,at least in the first set.

1 of the best matches i've seen this year.

Go Chardy

Oh yh he saved 2 match points in the tie break and Ferrer served for the match. All of this in 2nd set.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Chardy Courageous play in crucial moments

Unbelievable what has happened to Pics. In three tournaments this year he has lost 5 sets after wasting setpoints (two matchpoint sets)! Most players don't lose 5 those sets through the whole season.

Chardy on the other hand, has won 3rd match after saving MP in just 18 ATP tournaments what is worth to mention. It's amazing frequency of winning those matches.

Chardy strikes me to be a quite solid player only lacking something in the confidence/mental-department. Let's hope he can progress this season getting a few important matches in under his belt.

Roger Federer. Legend.
