Hello all and greetings again from the wonderful city of Gstaad. Before we recap the day of exciting semifinal play, there is some disheartening news to pass along. The dairy cow, Juliette, given as a gift to Roger Federer after his 2004 Wimbledon victory, was slaughtered earlier this week amidst conflicting reasoning. While official reports state that this unfortunate incident was a necessary evil, as the bovine was said to be producing insufficient amounts of milk, this act has angered both animal lovers across the globe as well as the once proud Gstaad champion, Roger Federer. Fed has been quoted as saying that the tournament brass had poor Juliette put down only to get his attention, and to show their anger over Roger not playing his home event. Further, Rog claims that he most certainly will never play Gstaad again after this incident, but that even though he may not show it, he still has a place for the Swiss in his heart. As for the opinion of this reporter...These Swiss sure are crazy, but mighty hospitable if I do say so myself.

Now on to what is truly important, the tennis. We start with the first singles semifinal to be played, the match up of good friends and doubles partners Juan Ignacio Chela and Joachim Johansson. While many were looking forward to this encounter of contrasting styles, the clay clearly won out today. Chela, at home on the dirt, dismantled the Swede, who for the first time this season, truly looked at a lost on his least favorite surface. The number one seed took advantage of his great movement, forcing Johansson to the defensive for much of the match. The final scoreline read 6-2 6-1, as the Argentine advanced the tomorrow's final in just under one hour's time. There he will face fellow Argentine and dirt-baller, second seed, Sergio Roitman, who had a much tougher go of things against countryman Guillermo Coria. Roitman looked to be in control after rolling through the opening set, taking it six games to two, however his lead would be short-lived. The diminutive Coria showed why he has reached number one in the world, attacking Roitman from every point of the court, blanking the two-seed to level the match. However, Coria was unable to keep up his superb form in the final set, as Roitman once again broke his opponent's serve twice to set up a dream clay-court final between two of the world's elite.

The doubles draw saw both semifinals go the distance, even though one lasted over an hour longer than the other. The first pitted earlier combatants, Chela and Johansson against Nicolas Mahut and Flavio Saretta. The two singles semifinalists showed that fatigue was not a factor in the opening set, taking it 6-0, behind seven Pim-Pim aces. The French/Brazilian pair roared back however, erasing three break points in their first service game of the set, and eventually taking the second 6-3. From there on, the second seeds looked lathargic, as Chela's mind was clearly focused on tomorrow's singles dual, while Johansson seemed to be longing for the hard courts of America. The final score read 0-6 6-3 6-0, after which the winning pair were ecstatic, claiming they would save their celebrating, however, until after tomorrow's final, assuming they are victorious. Standing in their way are improbable finalists, Ilia Bozoljac and Robin Haase, a first-time pair who have proven that grit and determination do outweigh skill, at least this week. The duo dropped a tight opening set to four seeds, Alex Bogdanovic and Ollie Rochus, 7-3 in a tiebreak, but fought back to level the affair at a set apiece, breaking Bogdanovic at love in the final game of the set to take it 7-5. The third was truly a back and forth affair as both teams traded both breaks and incredible shots until at four games all, the newcomer Bozoljac ripped a backhand return past the Belgian net man to convert the break, and then served out the match in the next game, winning 6-7(3) 7-5 6-4. Thus setting up an all unseeded final, to contrast with the match that will follow, the singles final between the number one and number two seeds.

That will do it for today, but I hope to see everyone back in attendance for the final day of this riveting tournament. Play begins at 12pm local time with the doubles final, followed at 3pm by the singles. Goodnight.

Thanks to everyone for playing, and congrats to the finalists and all who played well.
