    Third seed Juan Monaco is through to the final four after taking out Germany's Tobias Kamke. The 29-year-old Argentine converted five of 6 break points through an hour and 11 minutes of play.

    "It wasn't easy to play, as it was very cold," Monaco explained. "I am happy to have reached the semifinals and I will have a difficult match against a baseliner tomorrow."

    Monaco is scheduled to face countryman Guido Pella for a place in the championship final. The qualifier defeated 7th seed Viktor Troicki in the quarterfinals, 7-6(5), 7-5.

    Nieminen is through to take on Igor Sijsling in the next round. The Dutchman dismissed veteran Jan Hajek in the quarterfinals, 6-3, 6-1.

How disappointing for Tommy. He's been having a good season and I can't imagine he wasn't looking forward to winning at home.

What happened?
