    Grosjean [13] advanced to his fourth and last Grand Slam semifinal in awesome form not dropping a set, but it didn’t impress Federer [1], who was just entering an amazing period in his career, being invincible almost through three years (until March ’07). The Swiss broke twice in each of the first two sets and his straight sets victory seemed inevitable, however, at 4:3* for him in the 3rd set the rain forced the players to leave the court for a night. After the resumption the things got a bit complicated – Federer had two match points at 5:4, but Grosjean broke for a 6:5 lead, he didn’t capitalise though. Nevertheless in the tie-break the Frenchman had his big opportunity again leading *4:0, Federer levelled, and converted his fourth match point to win the tie-break 8/6.
