Federer, the top seed, scored a straight-set win over Gilles Muller of Luxembourg (6-4, 6-3). In the semifinals, the Swiss player faces Finland's Jarkko Nieminen, a three-set winner over Yeu-Tzuoo Wang of Taiwan (6-4, 6-7, 6-4).

The other semifinal has Britain's Andy Murray taking on hometown hero Paradorn Srichaphan of Thailand. Murray ousted third-seeded American Ginepri (4-6, 6-4, 6-3). Srichaphan advanced when his opponent, second seed Lleyton Hewitt of Australia, withdrew with a groin injury.
