Andreas Beck, Marcos Daniel advance to Swiss Open semifinals


GSTAAD, Switzerland — Andreas Beck of Germany reached his first ATP semifinal Friday, defeating Victor Crivoi of Romania 6-4, 7-6 (5) at the Swiss Open.

Beck will meet Marcos Daniel of Brazil in the last four, ensuring one will play in his first career final.

The 73rd-ranked Daniel defeated Florent Serra of France 6-4, 7-6 (1) in the quarter-finals.

Beck, ranked a career-high 51st, proved tougher than Crivoi on the big points as both struggled to land barely half of their first serves.

Marcos is now ranked no. 90 in the world, after having won the Blumenau challenger and making the semis in Curitiba, both in Brazil. He hasn't done to well on ATP tour events, but hopefully that is something that changes for Marcos.

Marcos is in preparations to play Davis Cup this week with Bellucci. Then he will play the Zagreb challenger, and attempt to once again qualify for RG. Lets hope for the best for Marcos during this important period of his season.

Marcos' personal career is back on next week at Zagreb, here is the draw:
http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2010/588/mds.pdf

Marcos is playing wildcard entrant Nikola Mektic in the first round, a 21 year old who is ranked 299 in the world. His second round match would be vs. a qualifier or Polansky so he has a great draw to do some damage.

Good luck in Croatia, Marcos!
