The Shoes That Won Last Night: Ernests Gulbis, Djokovic Head to Semis

Previous / Next 1 of 9

 

After pulling off the biggest upset of the French Open thus far by defeating Roger Federer, Ernests Gulbis’s momentum keeps rolling as the No. 18 seed dropped No. 6 Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 yesterday. At just 25 years old, Gulbis will be heading to the semifinals of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career. His surprising run will be tested in the semis, however, as he faces World No. 2 Novak Djokovic. The Joker handled Milos Raonic, who was on quite a run in his own right, with a final of 7-5, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4. Today, Nadal will meet David Ferrer, and Andy Murray will take on Gael Monfils to determine the second semifinal match up as the men’s singles field begins to wrap up.

On the women’s side, No. 7 Maria Sharapova and No. 18 Eugenie Bouchard advanced to the semifinals. Be sure to hit the jump for the full rundown of both the best men’s and women’s shoes on the clay, as well as last night’s MLB rundown.
