• Andujar, Monfils into Nice semifinals

    5/24/13 12:11 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Andujar, Monfils into Nice semifinals Spaniard Pablo Andujar and Gael Monfils of France booked semifinal spots in Nice, as the seeds toppled before the weekend.

    Pablo Andujar def. Gilles Simon (2) 6-4, 7-5

    Tournament No. 2 seed Gilles Simon was sent packing on Thursday evening by resurgent Spaniard Pablo Andujar, who booked a second semifinal spot in three weeks with the upset win.

    Andujar dictated play in the first set, with Simon playing his default game of passive tennis. The Spaniard secured a single break of serve to take the one-set lead.

    Things appeared to be looking up for Simon in the second. The Frenchman was up a break in the second, but Andujar fought his way back on serve, and with Simon serving to do his part to force the tiebreaker, the Spaniard secured a second service break and with it the match.

    Andujar will take on crowd favorite Gael Monfils in the semis.

    Gael Monfils (WC) def. Robin Haase 6-2, 6-3

    It was an easy win for France's Gael Monfils, who seems to be on his way back to form after knee injuries kept him sidelined on and off since last year.

    Dutchman Robin Haase is no clay-court expert, a fact exposed by Monfils on Thursday. Haase, who is known for his big-hitting game, had no aces in the match and was broken five times by an increasingly spry looking Monfils.

    The Frenchman is fighting to improve his ranking, which has sunk to No. 109 in the world.

way to go Andujar!
And now to put the pressure on Monfils... he's a much bigger fish to catch

I was wondering what happened to Monfils. He has a long way back, but it's nice to see him playing and getting some wins.
