Share

World No. 14 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won two tiebreaks against World No. 7 and tournament top seed Marin Cilic on Friday to advance to the semifinals of the Rotterdam Open, where he'll face a familiar foe: Tomas Berdych.

Tsonga converted on his fourth set point in the opening set tie-break with a trademark forehand victor down the line before the big-hitting Frenchman took his opportunity in the second set tie-break to record his first win over Cilic since August 2011.

2014 champion Tomas Berdych played another brilliant match, blowing Martin Klizan from the court by 6-3 6-3 in under an hour, to end Slovakian's great run here in Rotterdam.

Logan: Fox originally concerned about movie's tone
Based on the brief images in the clip, perhaps this is where Logan director James Mangold is going with the storyline. And unlike most superhero movies of late, Logan doesn't engineer its plot for franchise road-mapping.

Tied at 3-3 in the deciding set, Cilic staved off five break points before cruising to the victory against his fellow Croatian.

Cilic's start to the year has been nothing short of disastrous, with the big server winning only three matches in the four tournaments entered so far in 2017.

"I was playing extremely well, using every opportunity I had", Cilic said. "They are smaller draws than Masters or Grand Slams, but the matches are always tough", said Goffin.

Jets' Darrelle Revis turns himself into police after robbery, assault charges
Revis did not speak to waiting reporters when arriving at the Pittsburgh Municipal Courts building on Friday evening. Police say the 22-year-old man and the 21-year-old man claimed they were punched and knocked out.

"Fortunately, I recovered quickly enough and found my rhythm, which allowed me to compete for a very full set and rather good for me. Borna has proved himself as a next-gen player".

In the night session, Goffin exacted revenge on Dimitrov after his Australian Open quarter-final loss with a 6-4 1-6 6-3 win, while Pierre-Hugues Herbert stunned second seed Dominic Thiem with an impressive 6-4 7-6 victory.

Austrian Thiem came through in straight sets 6-4 7-6 (7-4) against Gilles Simon of France, while it was a similar story for fifth-seeded Bulgarian Dimitrov as he saw off Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 7-6 (9-7) 6-1.

The Batman: Plans for Matt Reeves to direct come to a halt
Together with the studio, I have chose to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. Although there is a chance that negotiations may resume if no other candidate is found, now Reeves has stepped away.
