Federer Reaches Estoril Semis, to Play Montanes

Despite a very shaky start, Roger Federer advanced to the semifinals of the Estoril Open after defeating Arnaud Clement 7-6 (7), 6-2. Federer was broken in the opening game of the match but was able to rally himself to pull out a tough first set, which he followed up with a dominating 2nd set performance. His semifinal opponent will be defending champion Albert Montanes, who beat Pablo Cuevas 6-4, 6-3. In the other semi, Federico Gil, who recovered from a set down to win, will play Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, a straight set winner.
