Missed it.... but looks like Al-Magro played well.

Djokovic upset by Melzer after being up 2 sets???? WOW!

Looks like we're on course for the Soderling/Nadal final after all.

Yeah that Djokovic match was ridiculous! I'm happy for Melzer though ... nice to see some of the guys who are about my age (i.e., Soderling and Melzer) do well amidst all the young 'uns.

Rafa Vs. Soderling on Sunday! Two amazing semi-final matches ... hopefully an awesome final!

If anyone is watching, the ladies final has just started and, if the opening games are anything to go by, this is looking to be quite a match.

That first set seemed to be won entirely with defense. There was one game where Rafa showed some brilliant offense. I'd love to see some more of that, but he only really needs small doses of it to come through.

hehe, dont worry taz, Im watching the game, Nadals was really aggresive in that breakpoint. And maybe too aggresive in the next one. He looks a little impatient out there. Soderling has to be one the most enigmatic players ever. Dude plays terrible in that 0/40, and then plays a perfect game to win it. He looks so mentally unstable. Sometimes so cold, sometimes so weak.

That second game of the second set is exactly why I think this guy ends up being the best ever.

His incredible defense and scrappiness are two of my favourite things about him.

There is another smattering of brilliant offense - and that should be enough to take another set.

I like Soderling but ... really, he's not playing v. smart. Only because I think he's letting a few points get away from him by assuming that the ball is not coming back over the net or by assuming that the ball is going out ... like, hello. This is Nadal you're playing dude ... he will scramble and scramble until he can scramble no more.
