Solid win for Jonesie, saved 5 break points in first 2 service games, 2nd from 0-40. In 2nd set broke Ward 1st games, and broke Ward again to go double break up at 4-1. Then faced 3x bp's in next game at 0-40. Three straight aces from the big serving New South Welshman saw him save and then hold for 5-1. Good going, medal rounds next, so let's hope he can perform as well tomorrow.
Greg is through to the final after outlasting Luczak in 3 sets today. First time I've seen him play for a while and he certainly looks to have improved a lot. He could overpower Somdev in the final who beat Ebden comfortably earlier. Good luck mate.

Not a bad match by Jonesie. Played solid, attacked Looch's 2nd serve and served big when needed. Came from 3-1 down in the first and levelled to get to the tie-break. Looch played the better breaker. Jonesie appeared unruffled and stuck to the task, breaking Looch at 4-4 and then served out the set. Broke Looch again 1st game of 3rd set and went on with it. Good luck to him in the Final. He is a chance as Devvarman has not looked that good, easily beating Ebden, but Jonesies game is different.
Jonesie reaps the benefit of some hard off-season training and hitting by getting past the No.4 seed Simon Greul in straight sets. Jonesie dominated with his big serve with 15 aces and also broke Greul three times, but dropped his own serve twice, in getting a 7-6(2), 6-3 win. Go Jonesie
