Jurgen Melzer blended power and finesse Saturday to beat seventh-seed Paul Goldstein 6-3, 6-4 in the semifinals of the U.S. Clay Court Championships. Melzer teed off with his potent forehand to keep Goldstein off balance and scrambling. But it was the Austrian's drop shots -- some from the baseline which he followed to the net -- that gave the American fits.
