Jo-Wilfried Tsonga outlasted a demoralized Andy Roddick in a third-set tiebreak to advance to the semifinals in Paris to play James Blake who got a walkover from Roger Federer who had a stiff back. David Nalbandian who dismissed the other Andy will play Nikolay Davydenko who got a retirement from Rafael Nadal who had a stiff knee.
And the shot-spot operator refused to do what the chair umpire told him to do toward the end of the Roddick-Tsonga affair. All parties on the court agreed that Andy had one challenge remaining and could get a replay of a serve that had been called out, but wasn't. The chair ump had to call the supervisor to the court to clear up the matter because the shot-spot operator was such a knucklehead.
The crowd was simply unruly throughout.
