amazing! congrats Denis!
... although, of course, you can always expect something like that from Kohli
I think that should be Istomin's first ATP semi?

Lots of money on Istomin pre-match. Istomin takes first set.

Huge dollops of money on Kohl early in 2nd set drives down his price ridiculously. By an enormous coincidence, Kohl breaks immediately after and wins 5 games in a row.

Third set seemed genuine though.


ps comedy easy draw for Verdasco now: Lu, Becker, Berankis, Istomin. All he needs is for Roddick to flop out, maybe Russell in the final :-)

Only problem with that is that Ricardis will beat Verdasco :sport:

Against Haas is was all the latter, but today Istomin played pretty well at times I'd say. He goes as his serve goes.

Istomin was surprisingly good in the third set, really nice rallies there.

Istomin actually played some of the best tennis in his life. That's why Kohli lost.

Great serving and very good defense game.

Actually defense won the match for Istomin

At 1*2 and 30*40 in the 3rd Kohli made some great shots that Istomin however retrived and then Kohli missed an easy volley... to give Istomin a break that proved to be decisive
