Final stages at Queens

Hey,
So another day at London's Queens with two semi-finals which include two British players. I think it's been a while since two British players have been in the semi-finals of a tour event. So this was a real pleasure for the home crowd of the likes of Murray and Ward. The latter was actually 216th in the world before the tournament started so you can understand the surprise of the british fans to see a british player in the later tour stages well except Murray which I think played sublimely today against Roddick and crushed him under an hour. However Ward's chances seemed slim to go through to the final and join his fellow countryman as he was playing against Tsonga for which the surface seem to be working with him at last after years of failures on the grass. Although in the match Ward seemed to have a very good backhand and a consistent game overall which you don't really associate a 216th player in the world to have. However Tsonga played a good match and that seemed to be enough be beat the unknown player that had to come through the qualifier. Even though Tsonga seem to have a much better season I still think Murray will destroy him if he will play to the same level he swiped Roddick of the grass. So yeah an unusual thing to not see Nadal in a final but still it'll be very interesting.
