Default San Jose Semifinal: Julien "career high" Benneteau vs Istomin

Can Benny make another final? Why is Istomin so good now? Or was that just Roddick making him look good? Who will win?

Istomin is playing a decent tennis and had a good draw, Benneteau is maybe in the best moment of career.

Benneteau probably will win in 2 hard sets or in 3 sets.

I want Julien to finally win his first title. I mean, even Kukushkin, Kunitsyn, Golubev, Volandri, Sweeting (!), Mello etc. have won a title and Benneteau is MUCH better and more complete player than they are.

I'll be happy if Istomin reaches the final. So Istomin in 3 tight set.

Istomin is an ok player, but Benneteau is much better. Istomin's draw was a total cakewalk. Would not be in the semis if it wasn't

I'm always confused with Benneteau. He drops in form and falls in the rankings, then rises up to a career high, then falls again, then rises up to a career high and then falls again etc. Very inconsistent.

I expect him to win this, however.

i expect a tight, physical match as both players are peaking. benneteau won handily at the uso but istocir has improved significantly in the off-season and he’s now brimming with confidence. a raonic vs. istocir final would be far more appealing so i’ll take denis with the upset in three

Benneteau should win in 2 or 3. looks like an interesting match, important for both men, should be fun.
