Great win of Isner! In match of two surprises, John Isner beat Tsonga and reached its first SF in her second tournament. Isner is in great phase here in Monte Carlo and is surprise in the clay season. Tsonga finally reached the QF, but is disappointed with that kind of defeat.

Young Guns Rule at Monte Carlo; Lopez the Last Seed Standing

http://cornedbeefhash.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/marin-cilic-pilotpen08b.jpg
Cilic, an up-and-comer, upsets fifth seed Federer.

With the upset of number 1 and number 2 seeds Andy Roddick and Gilles Simon yesterday, today's quarterfinals continued the trend and produced a field of unexpected semifinalists. Young guns Marin Cilic and NTT new arrivals John Isner and Marat Safin all advanced. Sixth seed Feliciano Lopez rallied back from a set down to upset third seed Gael Monfils; he is the last remaining seed, and the favourite to win the tournament.

Marat Safin quietly blazed his trail towards the semifinals, defeating Gustavo Kuerten today. Kuerten, who upset number 1 seed Roddick yesterday, held two set points at 5-4 and 6-5 in the first set, but needed a tiebreak to take the first set 7-6(5). Kuerten carved out a match point at 5-4 in the second, but was again unable to convert due to nerves and lost the second 5-7. The third set went down in similar fashion, as Kuerten again failed to take the match point at 5-4 and surrendered the match 6-7(5), 7-5, 7-5. Safin held his temper and grinded out the win that lasted almost 3 hours. "My sister texted me after the match to congratulate me on the win and not breaking any racquets." Safin joked in his post-match interview. This is his first semifinal since his recent arrival on the NTT.

The second quarterfinal match-up could be deemed the match of the tournament so far. Indian Wells champion and third seed Gael Monfils took on Miami finalist and sixth seed Feliciano Lopez. The tide turned many times the first set, as Monfils took a convincing 5-1 lead but lost five games in a row. Lopez could not convert his set point and Monfils took the tiebreak 7-4. Lopez did not waste any chances in the second and took it 6-3. In the decider, both players produced some impressive winners, but it was Lopez that sealed the semifinalist spot with an ace, 6-7(4), 6-3, 6-4.

The bottom half belonged to the youngsters, as 20 year old Marin Cilic took out fifth seed Roger Federer in convicing fashion. After some blistering forehands to break Federer for 4-2 first set, he held his nerve and closed out the first set on his first set point, 6-3. Although Cilic was again a break-up at 5-3 second set, Federer used his experience and broke right back. However, a couple of errors at the net gave Cilic the match, as the young Croatian wins 6-3, 6-4.

John Isner, although 24 this year, is relatively new to the tour. He took out Frenchman Jo-Wilfrid Tsonga today 6-4, 7-6(4). Tsonga simply could not keep up the form he displayed yesterday when he upset the second seed Gilles Simon. Isner fired many aces and though got tight at 5-1 second set and lost the next five games; he came roaring back and took the tiebreak 7-4 for the match.

This Masters 1000 event semifinals will be played on Friday. Marat Safin takes on sixth seed Feliciano Lopez. Marin Cilic battles for a spot in the final with John Isner.

Great Win for Feliciano Lopez! The Spanish reached the second final consecutive in different surfaces! Always in front of the scoreboard, Feliciano had in his service the key to victory. Safin missed a lot today, saved 2MP , but was late for the reaction.

Another easy victory for Marin Cilic, which reaches its first final in the season! Without any difficulty, Cilic was superior throughout the match, showing confidence in their strokes and varying well their moves. Isner has a great tournament and is confident for the coming weeks, but today Cilic was better.

[6] Feliciano Lopez def. Marin Cilic
6-7(6) 7-5 6-0* :eek:
Congrats for first title of Feliciano Lopez! After losing the final in Miami, Lopez shows overrun to win the title at Monte Carlo.
In great match, Lopez and Cilic showed because reached the final. With greats exchange of ball, the match was exciting.
The first set was balanced, with both players alternating in the lead if the score. Better to Cilic, which closed the set with an ace.
In the second set, Cilic was 3-0 and was very close to closing the match, but Lopez has recovered, returned to the match and saved 2MP to take the game to the last set.
Cilic despaired with missed chances and lost ease in the last set. Moreover, he felt a strong thigh injury. With more experience, Lopez closed the game with ease and winning his first title.
