Monza CH SF: Gimeno-Traver def. Machi Gonzalez 7-5 6-3

DGT winning 3 matches in a row is rare. The last round he beat Cheatdesnik after saving a match point with a letcord.

Today he played some excellent tennis, the forehand was massive and the backhand reached an average level. He even caught Starace out with some dropshots.

Plays Machi Gonzalez for a place in the final.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Gimeno-Traver barely survives 18year old world nr 533 Ermin, lucks through against odesnik with his disgusting letcord matchpoint and THEN totally destroys starace????
he won 28/30 on first serve and 14/22 on second....starace returned with his penis or whats the reason???

Actually DGT played well, sure this might surprise you. Moved his serve around, not making as many club errors on the backhand.

As for Odesnik he deserves no sympathy losing a match on a letcord.

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".

If he wins this title he'll be inside the top 105.

Dani played very well yesterday and overall he's been pretty decent this week. His serve in particular. Hopefully he maintains this level for two more matches.

Gimeno-Traver is one of the few Spaniards who is exciting to watch so I'm glad he won. He played some great tennis against Murray last year at Wimbledon and if he can play like that more often, he should rise up the rankings.

In the final now with a win over Machi Gonzalez, plays Montañes.

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".
