for once the match went just like Horacio predicted before the match LOL... maybe it is time to start asking for the day matches... it has the downside of needing greater mobility, but his serve and FH can do a little more damage, in one point last night he said "i can't move these balls, they're huge!" (or something like that)

Movistar Open
Vina del Mar, Chile February 6, 2009
Three Of Top Four Seeds Reach SFs in Vina
© Jim Rydell

Top seed and three-time Movistar Open champion Fernando Gonzalez improved his career record to 26-5 in his native country's tournament as he beat No. 5 seed Juan Monaco 6-0, 6-2 in Vina del Mar on Friday.

Watch Live Video Stream of the 7pm and 10pm semi-final matches from Vina del Mar (-3 hours GMT)

The top Chilean won the title in 2002, '04 and last year while reaching the final in 2005. He will take on qualifier Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay in the semifinals for the second straight year. Last season Gonzalez saved two match points in a 6-7(4), 7-6(6), 6-2 win over Cuevas. Gonzalez holds a 3-0 lifetime advantage in their career meetings.

Gonzalez only lost eight points (28 of 36) in seven service games while breaking Monaco five times in the 56-minute match. Gonzalez won the first eight games of the match and was in control throughout in improving to 3-0 lifetime against the Argentine.

Cuevas advanced to the semi-finals with a 7-5, 7-5 victory over Chilean wild card Paul Capdeville. The 23-year-old Cuevas, who is No. 171 in the South African Airways 2009 ATP Rankings, converted three of five break points and saved five of six break points in the one hour and 37 minute match.

No. 2 seed Tommy Robredo of Spain and No. 4 Jose Acasuso (pictured) of Argentina advanced to the semi-finals in different fashion.

Robredo rallied from a slow start to defeat Argentine wild card Juan Ignacio Chela 0-6, 6-3, 6-4, while 2006 champion Acasuso beat lucky loser Sebastian Decoud of Argentina 6-4, 6-2.

The 26-year-old Robredo, who is making his first Latin American clay court circuit appearance since 2001, improved his career record to 4-1 over Chela. Robredo owns a 3-2 career advantage over Acasuso, winning their last meeting in the final of Sopot in June 2007.

After losing serve three times in the opening set, Robredo bounced back to account for the only break in the second set for a 4-2 lead. In the third set, Robredo broke for a 2-1 lead but lost serve in the fourth game. The decisive break came in the seventh game and the Spaniard held serve twice to secure the two hour and minute victory.

Chela, who was making his first appearance on the ATP World Tour this season since his last tournament at Roland Garros in May 2008, actually won four more points (89 to 85) than Robredo in the match.

Chela converted four of eight break points compared to Robredo's three of seven break point chances.

Acasuso, who is playing in his first ATP World Tour tournament of the season after missing last month with a right shoulder injury, took control of the match after losing serve early.

The 26-year-old Buenos Aires resident was broken in the third game of the match but came back to break in the eighth and 10th games to win the 50-minute set. In the second set, Acasuso broke in the second game and again in the eighth game to improve his career record to 15-5 in Vina del Mar.

Acasuso won 58 per cent of second serve points to Decoud's 25 per cent. The lucky loser was appearing in his first ATP World Tour quarter-final of his career. Acasuso converted four of seven break points to Decoud's one of two in the one hour and 28 minute match.

Tuesday: Calleri Denies Local Title Hope
