Rafael Nadal hasn’t made things easy for himself in his first tournament since his Australian Open victory. Nadal broke Tsonga in the first set, but Tsonga was able to take the second set in a tiebreak. Nadal was broken in the third set; however, he was able to break Tsonga’s serve twice in the set to win the match in two hours and forty minutes 6-4,6-7,6-4. 

After defeating Tsonga, Nadal said that “This was a completely different match from my first two … today I played my best tennis so far in Rotterdam. I played against a very good opponent who showed form by winning a tournament last week.” 

Nadal will next face Gael Monfils. The other semifinal will feature second seed Andy Murray who will face Mario Ancic.
