"I played good today, no? He plays with great power and it's good to start this way in the first match and to win in two sets,'' Ferrer said.

Germany's Philipp Kohlscreiber became the first player in the tournament to become a semifinalist. The tournament's No. 8 seed, Kohlscreiber defeated No. 2 seed Nicolas Almagro, 7-6 (5), 6-4. Kohlschreiber, the winner of the tournament in 2008, will face the victor of the quarterfinal match between Benoit Paire and Olivier Rochus. Neither player is seeded.
