June of 05. He beat Bachinger, Ascione and Starace before losing to Oscar Hernandez.

I think it's Monte Carlo 2004.

Wow is that the comeback of Schuettler or just a lucky draw? Time & tomorrow's match will tell. Their h2h is tied, even though Nadal hasn't found his absolute A game yet he's heavily favored to win that one...I hope I'll be able to watch it...

I guess he was quite lucky to get Klec and Phau in the 2nd round and the QFs, but he deserved his luck because he beat Ferrer in the 1st round. :p

Lucky Draw....Phau should be banned from ATP Tournaments. He is a CHALLENGER for life.

Well done, Rainer!
After beating Ferrer, he had two more easier opponents and glad he could profit from a good draw to reach another SF after such a long time! :yeah:

The draw is good but he still has to win those 3 matches.

It can also be said to the players he defeated this week that Rainer is an easy opponent with his 5 straight loss on ATP tour before this tournament.

Congrats Rainer, really happy to see him finally in a semifinal again :)

Well the draw wasn't that difficult but he had to win the matches nevertheless! :lol:

This should give him confidence to get back to where he used to be - top 50

How funny. Youzhny and Schuettler the two unseeded surprise semifinalists here, and they were doubles partners. They lost in the first round in their first dubs match together in quite a while! Must be good luck when they pair up to lose. ;)

Agassi thinks so too.

Big chance missed by Phau, but he has already reached three ATP quarterfinals this year. :yeah:

i see this as a pretty good win really. he easily dispatched the guy who beat Agassi and played high quality tennis Schuettler.

Maybe Rainer will now remember what winning feels like and start doing it again. Sure getting back to the top 5 is very unlikely but there's no real reason he can't get a decent ranking back this year if he applies himself.

It's great for Schüttler, but honestly, he didn't have to do much yesterday, Phau just couldn't keep the ball in play.
