Auckland semis decided….David F & David N are favoured,

Top seed David Ferrer secured his place in the semi-finals of the ATP Heineken Open in Auckland with a gritty three-set win over Philipp Kolhschreiber. The Spaniard, number seven in the world, was on court for two hours and 43 minutes against the eighth seed, getting off to a solid start with a 6-3 opening-set win. Kolhscreiber hit back to level matters on a tie-break, before Ferrer saw the match out 6-3 6-7 (4/7) 6-3.

The 28-year-old will now face Colombian Santiago Giraldo in the last four, after he brushed past Thomaz Bellucci. After taking the first set 6-2, Giraldo needed just one break of serve to take the second 6-4.

The other semi-final will be between David Nalbandian and wild card Nicolas Almagro. Nalbandian earned and took just one break point throughout his clash with John Isner, taking the first set 6-4 and then winning the second on a tie-break, 7-6 (7/3). Almagro needed just over two hours to knock out France’s Adrian Mannarino, serving 11 aces as he won 7-6 (7/3) 6-7 (1/7) 6-2.
