Today was about the tennis and getting through to the semifinals. It was a very long day with two three-set wins that really tested the nerves of my family. I therefore apologize for this short post today, but I thought it best to let you know that I’m exhausted and ready for bed rather than skip my blogging duties completely.

John Isner tested my returning abilities by hitting 21 aces in total, but I took my break point opportunities and was relieved to head to the on-site restaurant for a bowl of pasta with a win under my belt. Andreas Seppi, who reached last week’s semifinals in Hamburg, tested me in the afternoon but I’m glad to have gotten through it in one piece.

I’ve had some fish and potatoes for dinner with my family in the hotel restaurant and have gotten Rolf, my physio, to give me a massage to relax my muscles. Looking at this photo, I seem to have dozed off.

Осень опять надевается с рукавов,
Электризует волосы - ворот узок.
Мальчик мой, я надеюсь, что ты здоров
И бережёшься слишком больших нагрузок.
Мир кладёт тебе в книги душистых слов,
А в динамики - новых музык.
Город после лета стоит худым,
Зябким, как в семь утра после вечеринки.
Ничего не движется, даже дым.
Только птицы под небом плавают, как чаинки,
И прохожий смеется паром, уже седым.

Hello everyone,

Another quick post tonight as I'm about to go to a 9 p.m. gala dinner with the other finalist, Juan Monaco, along with the tournament sponsors and staff. From my side there will be nine of us in all, so it will be nice not to have to pick up the cheque for a night! When you've got a big group with you like I do this week I need to keep some extra cash on hand for dinner because I don’t like using credit cards. It's just the Russian mentality with cash. Sometimes at dinner if I don't have enough cash with me I'll ask Eduard to take care of it.

Today Guillermo Vilas came up to me to say hello, which was nice. "I've just seen your father and he's fit, just like you," Vilas said. I was surprised that he knew what my father looked like. He must have met him last year. It's great to see Vilas here and I see him a few times during the year. It's funny... The man is everywhere. He probably goes to more tournaments these days than when he was playing

Today there was a lot of time spent just waiting. Waiting for the rain to clear and waiting for the long first semifinal to finish. But the good thing here in Poertschach is how close the hotel is to the courts. I can see center court from my room. And the players lounge is in the hotel.

Wish me luck for Saturday's final.

Nikolay

Last night the tournament had a nice dinner for the guys in the final and there were a lot of sponsors and people at the party. I had my table of family and friends. We had a good time and my fitness trainer Rolf (Shaaf) and I wanted to change faces. I looked like him and I gave him my tennis stuff and he looked like me. We finished around 11 and then I had a massage until 12 to prepare for the final today.

After two three-set matches on Thursday I was tired yesterday. And today I was feeling tired in the warm-up when I hit for 20 minutes. But I felt much better when I went on the court and during the match. I played very good and it was not easy but a good match and I feel very confident going into Roland Garros.

It was the third time I won here and it was easier the last two times (2005-06) and I am happy to win playing longer matches this week. It's really relaxing here and it's a small tournament, small town and good organization. It feels great and winning my 13th title before Roland Garros is very good for me.

It's a nice feeling to win a tournament with support from my family and friends. It's the first time my parents have seen me win an ATP title outside Moscow.

After finishing the press and taking some pictures, I am going to the sauna now. It has a swimming pool and it's good to relax.

I will stay here tonight and fly to Paris tomorrow at 2 o'clock on a private jet that my manager (Ronnie Leitgeb) has arranged. There's no direct flights from here to Paris so flying just two hours tomorrow with my wife, nephew and trainer will make it easier. I won't be so tired from the flight. Eduard and his wife and my parents are going tonight to Germany by train. Eduard needs to pick up some stuff for me at home in Cologne and he's driving four hours Sunday to Paris. My parents are going back to Russia.

In Paris, there will be six people in our team (my wife, Eduard, his wife, my nephew and trainer).

I will check in with you again tomorrow from Paris with my final post!

Nikolay
