Lucky Loser Navarro Pastor the Valencian specialist def Korolev 6-3 6-1

Yes, this could be said to be a clear victory for Navarro Pastor the serve/volleyer who makes his 2nd ATP semi at the same place where he made his 1st one.

Roitman failed to finish the job yesterday, but Navarro didn't.

“ 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".

Good job, Iván, I don´t like him as a player but he´s absolutely making the best out of his abilities this week. I wouldn´t be surprised at all if he even manages to win the event

Lucky losser in the SF, OMG

He must love playing in Valencia, I would move there if I were him...

Vamos, beat Starace or this Granollers-Pujol (another x-one ) and you are in the final

I think he will have a very difficult job if he comes up against Starace but he's on form.

Only time I ever saw Navarro was at Wimbledon, he looked comfortable there. Too bad for Evgeny.

Yes. He has his best results on clay, but it's not a surface that fits his game.

Wrong imo. It´s obvious he serves very well and he´s an excellent volleyer (the best among Spanish players by far) but I think he´s a weirdo in this concern as he can´t defend shit from behind with his poor groundies on fast surfaces. An ultra slow court like Valencia has is good for him on his return games and gives him a lot of looks on them he wouldn´t get on other conditions.
