  • Cilic, Ferrero cruise into Umag semis

    7/30/11 8:09 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Marin Cilic treats the home crowd to a semifinal berth at the Croatia Open on Friday. Cilic is joined in the last four by Juan Carlos Ferrero, who dismissed Carlos Berlocq.

    (4) Marin Cilic d. (7) Andreas Seppi 6-1, 6-3

    Cilic booked his spot in the semifinals of the Studena Croatia Open on Saturday with a routine defeat of Seppi after just one hour and 11 minutes of play. The 6'6'' Croat needed three tough sets to get past Robin Haase in round two, but he put the home crowd through little suspense in this one. Cilic dropped only six service points in the first set and he used two breaks to close out the set on his racket at 5-1.

    More of the same continued in the second, with Umag's No. 4 seed again losing a mere six points on serve. Seppi donated two more breaks and the seventh-seeded Italian never came close to getting it back. Cilic's fourth break of the day finished off the proceedings in style at 5-4. Next up for the world No. 31 is Fabio Fognini, who ousted Potito Starace in three sets.

    Juan Carlos Ferrero d. Carlos Berlocq 6-1, 7-6(5)

    Looking for his second title in three weeks, Ferrero advanced out of his quarterfinal against Berlocq thanks to an utterly dominant return of serve. The 73rd-ranked Spaniard earned seven breaks out of 10 return games and set up a semifinal showdown with Alexnandr Dolgopolov after one hour and 23 minutes. Ferrero won 55 percent of the points even when Berlocq put his first serve in play and he won a whopping 16 of 20 second-serve return points.

    After a dismal opening frame of play, Berlocq at least managed to raise his level slightly in the second. The 83rd-ranked Argentine broke his opponent four times, but he also gave away his serve on four occasions and thus a tiebreaker had to decide things. Ferrero pulled it out seven points to five to continue his title quest having also prevailed in Stuttgart earlier this month.
