ADELAIDE, Australia (Ticker) - The last two seeds of the AAPT Championships lost Friday as Belgian qualifier Kristof Vliegen advanced to the semifinals of the $322,000 hardcourt event.

Vliegen ousted sixth-seeded Alberto Martin of Spain, 6-3, 6-4. He had not won a main draw ATP match before this week, but now is guaranteed of winning at least $16,800. His career prize money before this week stood at $22,696.

The 20-year-old Belgian reached the quarterfinals of the French and Wimbledon junior singles championships in 2000, when he also captured the Wimbledon junior doubles crown.

"I'm not thinking every point what I'm doing, I'm just letting go of my instinct and hitting every ball as hard as I can," Vliegen said. "I'm just letting go of my instinct and hitting every ball as hard as I can. When I'm serving well, everything is going great after, so today is a great day."

Next up for Vliegen is former Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek of the Netherlands, who continued to close in on his first title in more than three seasons with a 7-6 (7-3), 6-1 victory over American Brian Vahaly

Vliegen: "I'm not thinking every point what I'm doing, I'm just letting go of my instinct and hitting every ball as hard as I can. And tactics I'm playing well. When I'm serving well, everything is going great after, so today is a great day. I'm playing Krajicek, I've got nothing to lose. He's playing really well, serving really well. I saw him playing today; he's playing fantastic.

On Krajicek's serve: "I'm not the only person on earth with the big problem with that one. But tomorrow we'll see what happens."

The person who made the biggest impact on his career: "The manager of Justin Henin. Two years ago, I signed with him after my junior career and he did a great job for me; he found sponsors for me to travel. He took me from the Federation in Antwerp and I'm working privately now with my coach.
"For sure I've got a real passion for tennis and every day it's a great day for me when I can play tennis."

I didn't know he broke up with the VTV last year and that he won junior doubles with Coene in Wimbledon 2 years ago! That was on Teletext.

Come on, Kristof: beat him and play that final!!!

It's nice to see he kept his good form from last year, let's hope he will continue to play good this year so that we can expect some great things from him this year.

It's already great he got to the semi-final, but wouldn't it be amazing if he could win this tournemant

Good luck to Olivier Rochus, Xavier Malisse, Christophe Rochus, Dick Norman, Kristof Vliegen, Gilles Elseneer

Also good luck to Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Roddick, Thomas Enqvist, JM Gambill, Raemon Sluiter, James Blake, Gaston Gaudio, Marcelo Rios

He won against Krajicek in three sets

He played really well he has a great forhand and first serve. John Fitzgerald (Aussie Davis Cup captain) was doing the commentary and he said that he thinks Vliegen is a player of the future and also that he wants to know what is in the Belgian water with all the succesful and good players coming out of Belgium over the last few years
