In the tomorrow's semifinals he will face 1st seed, James Blake.

Second 1/2 pair is: Marcos Baghdatis vs. Grosjean or Serra!

Murray pulled out!

Tomorrow, apparently.
My Eurosport schedule says:
Semi-finals on Wednesday on Eurosport 2 (15:00-18:00) - LIVE
Final on Thursday on Eurosport (17:30-18:30) - LIVE
Match for the 3rd place on Thursday on Eurosport 2 (21:00-22:00)

Novak lost to Blake 7:5, 4:6, 4:6 although he was leading 7:5, 2:0!

But, it's not important, he performed good party for his fans...
