Bracket: The semis in Bucharest are now set — top seed Montanes will face Chela and Granollers will play qualifier Pablo Andujar. (Details: Draws and results)

The Argentine was up 5-2 in the second set before he fell and hurt his right leg. Unfortunately, he was not able to recover. What is it with him and leg bad luck?
